State Tourism, Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Committee chairman Hoo Seong Chang said tourists to a particular district would find such a centre useful.
"With brochures and maps available, it would be easier for tourists to find out more about attractions such as textile shops, small and medium-scale enterprises or food outlets."
He said every district in Johor was unique, with its own tourist package, and urged the Johor Tourism Department to further develop these packages to attract more tourists to the districts.
He said the absence of a proper information centre resulted in tourists missing out on many places of interest.
"In Ledang district, for example, there is the Gunung Ledang Waterfall that is popular with tourists. With a tourist information centre, a visitor could also get information on the nearby Tangkak town, which is known for its textile and food."
Hoo also said that June and July had been declared as eco-tourism months as part of efforts to attract more tourists to the state.
