Taman Molek is a main township in Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia.[1] It was developed by Pelangi Berhad Group in the 1990s and is now a mini commercial hub with several major banks : Standard Chartered, HSBC, Al-Rajhi Bank, Kuwait Finance House, Royal Bank of Scotland, OCBC, UOB, RHB Bank, EON, Maybank, Hwang-DBS Investments. It is surrounded by Taman Johor Jaya, Taman Redang, Taman Desa Harmoni, Taman Saujana, Taman Seri Molek Perdana and is adjacent to two major golf courses, Ponderosa Golf and Country Resort and the Daiman 18 Golf and Country Resort. It is becoming increasingly popular as a commercial and residential area and with a direct link to Johor Bahru slated to open soon. It is also close to the Tebrau-Plentong corridor which is seeing tremendous growth and also a lot of high end developments such as waterfront and marina type projects along with hotels and more commercial areas set to come in future.

A little known fact about Taman Molek is that for about half century it was the site of the main transmitting station of the BBC or British Broadcasting Corporation in the Far East – known locally as BBC Tebrau – before this was relocated to Singapore. In the old days the Masai Trunk Road was popularly known as the BBC Road.
