This mall opened to much fanfare in late March 2019, and there are a lot of reasons why its opening was so highly anticipated, one of it being its strategic location – it’s a breezy eight minutes’ stroll from CIQ checkpoint via a sheltered bridge! It’s definitely a huge plus, considering how you need a car to get to most of the malls in JB (and Malaysia in general).
