1. City Square

I’m sure we all already know about City Square. It’s huge, it’s filled to the brim with all kinds of shops, and it’s literally just a stone’s throw away from JB Sentral, which is the customs and immigrations checkpoint in Johor. Yup, that’s right – when I say it’s really easy to get here, I mean really easy. If you’re in need for some retail therapy, trust me when I say that this place was made for you!

How to get here: SBS Bus 160, 170 and 950 can get you to the JB checkpoint very easily. You can walk to the mall from the checkpoint in a matter of minutes.

2. AEON Bukit Indah


Yet another popular place amongst Singaporeans! With the weak ringgit these days, it’s no surprise to see hordes of Singaporeans swarming around here during the weekends. Tear yourself away from the attractive prices and promotions at the supermarket and take some time to stroll around AEON Bukit Indah – catch a movie, or browse the unique items sold in shopping carts littered around the mall. You won’t want to give this place a miss!

How to get here: Keep a lookout for the Causeway Link buses which can be boarded at Jurong East MRT (CW3) and Boon Lay MRT (CW6) stations. These buses stop at Larkin, but they will turn into the Bukit Indah area midway. Trips from Singapore costs just S$4.

3. Johor Premium Outlets (JPO)

Picture every noteworthy brand name you know, and – poof! You’ll get them at Johor Premium Outlets. Home to around 130 outlet stores, you will find brands like Burberry, Salvatore Ferragamo, Michael Kors and Armani nestled around this compound. Oh, and did I mention the craaazy savings that you can get? Branded goods are easily 25–65% off the usual prices you’d get anywhere else. Yup, you heard that right! This is one stop that is perfect for your Johor shopping spree!

How to get here: Again, you can take the Causeway Link buses that go by the 2nd link (Tuas). Take note: once you’re clear at the Malaysian immigration side, look out for the JPO2 buses that go to JPO at 8.30am, 11.30am, 2.30pm and 5.30pm. JPO will be the third stop on this journey.

4. Legoland Malaysia

Legoland Malaysia was (and still is) a sensation when it opened in 2012. It’s not only the first international theme park in Malaysia, it’s also the first Legoland theme park in Asia! Aaaand of course, being situated in Johor, it’s easy for us Singaporeans to drop by. It’s no surprise that the multitudes of play areas and rides will chase the boredom away. If you’re looking to score some parenting points – well, this is the place to be!

How to get here: Same as the above direction to the Johor Premium Outlets, but Legoland Malaysia will be the first stop on the JPO2 bus.

5. Hello Kitty Town

*Warning: cat puns ahead*

Me, a cat fan? That’s pre-paws-terous! Okay okay, I know that the love for Hello Kitty has been around for ages, and I’m sure that some of you reading this can attest to this. Take that love one step further and make your way to the Hello Kitty Town in Johor! Have a paw-some time on the Hello Kitty rides, or make yourself feel like a purr-ince/purr-incess at the Hello Kitty House. Whatever it is, you’re sure to have a paw-tastic time!

How to get here: As above, but Hello Kitty Town will be the second stop on the JPO2 bus.

6. KSL City

KSL City is yet another mall you can find near the immigration checkpoint. It’s full of shops, eateries, and it’s even got its own accommodation. But I bet you’re thinking: “aww man, not another mall!” Well, trust me when I say that this one stands out just fine on its own! If you can, head down on a Monday evening and be treated to the KSL Pasar Malam! You can expect to see your usual pasar malam things like clothes and toys, but the thing you’ll want to experience here is the FOOD. Trust me, guys. The food is amazing.

How to get here: Once you’re in JB Sentral, look out for Causeway Link bus S1. That will take you to KSL City for just RM2.
