Sungai Karas is a small Chinese New Village 华人新村 in Segamat District, Johor, Malaysia, 3 km south of Labis. The old village area has about 100 houses, while two new housing areas have about 70 houses. There is one Chinese Primary School, SJK(C) Karas. Most villagers are rubber tappers at their six ekar rubber trees. In the last 10 years some rubber trees were replaced by those producing palm oil. Most jobs in the rubber jungle are done by old villagers, while most young people left their home to work in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur or Johor Bahru.[1]
