    The staff very friendly and nice, i think one of the staff with the nametag, sophia? Sofia? Idk if i got the name right but one of the woman staff on 7 March bout 3pm lah. Was super nice like she actually fills ur drink to the brim cause at first i gave the order and when she filled it and left some space to put ice I suddenly remembered i didnt want ice and she didnt jsut cap it she got another cup filled it with some drink and poured it into my cup to fill it to the brim. Like omg THEY FILL IT TO THE BRIM BRIM. Also the food there quite good, just quite salty, the store was the one near a chicken balloon game stall and Albert Einstein place thing. The staff in general very friendly! In general legoland is very for kids cause i found the rides really slow and rather boring but hey when u go with friends, its way more fun. Love rhe mascots also!!

    Strategic and closest to the immigration gate to Singapore. No wonder is the 1st choice for every people who crossed from Singapore to JB.
    Well, for me, nothing too special but for foods, this is the mall you gotta go. Other than that, I do not find anything amusing.
    Come here and gotta try ORIENTAL (it is a modern coffee shop like Ya Kun or Toast Box in Singapore but with more variety of traditional foods).

    A stretch of 70m of 45deg gradient is a challenge, the rest ok in difficulty. Do recommend having a go. The more challenging stretches have ropes as guide. I used them to pull myself forward.

    From booking via Facebook to being warmly greeted, to the fabulous gentle boat trip, everything was excellent. An abundance of fireflies. Some trees were so full of them, to a British Expat it reminded me of a winter wonderland. So many twinkling lights in the trees.

    The boat captain even knows where the monitor lizard sleeps and pointed it out.

    I cannot recommend highly enough how much you should see this attraction and support the family that offers it.

    KSL City Mall has been Singaporeans' top picks of the malls in JB to shop. Beside food and shopping, Singaporeans came here to pamper themselves with beauty services, wellness, spa and massage including nail and hair treatment and watch movies. I was shocked to see more than 50 salons, hair studios and massage parlors in the mall at almost every level. The prominent ones include Studio M, VZ Hair Salon, Cozy Massage, SQ Massage, Relux Zone, BKK Thai Spa, X PRO, De Nail Palace, SMA Hair and Beauty, etc. It was not the original KSL City Mall I know of when it was open.

    There are also dental clinics, optical shops and pharmacies which give comparatively cheaper rates and charges than that same goods and services in Singapore. Apparently, the mall has adapted to meet the interests and needs of Singaporeans.

    Compared to AEON Tebrau City, Mid Valley South key and Toppen, this mall is unbelievably congested with push carts and atrium display that there is no space for seats. Push carts selling street food at the lower ground floor and also push carts are at every level selling phone accessory, snacks, apparels, watches, slippers and many other items.

    Car servicing workshops sprouted around the vicinity of the mall to cater to Singaporeans who may find it cheaper to service their cars here. On every Monday night, there is also a Pasar Malam set up just outside the mall and Singaporeans can patronize the many makeshift stalls selling roasted duck, jackfruit, rojak, durians, buns, fish, vegetables, satay, Thai mango sticky rice, etc.

    If you are not driving, just take bus F100 JB Sentral Bus Interchange and it alights directly at KSL City Mall. Bus fare is only RM1.50. The famous Ming Ang Confectionery is located just across the road from the mall, and you can buy the palatable local pastries and tau sar biscuits at this outlet. There is also a well-known bak kut teh shop on the same stretch of shops as Ming Ang Confectionery. Old Chang Kee, Seoul Garden, Sushi King, SK Jewelry, Watsons, Guardian Pharmacy, Factory Outlet Store, Starbuck, Coffee Leaf & Bean etc are familiar brands to Singaporeans and you can find them all in the mall. Maybe, NTUC Fairprice or Sheng Siong Supermarkets can open a branch here which will definitely attract more customers than Lotus's Hyper-mart.

    Before I departed KSL City for JB Sentral, I bought 3 packets of heong peah (biscuits) - bamboo charcoal, traditional sesame pastry and the original heong peah from the Snack Boys Shop for my family.

    KSL City Mall has been specially molded to suit the taste and likings of Singaporeans. It is really a haven here and Singaporeans enjoy 吃喝玩乐 (eat, drink and be merry) especially when the conversion rate of the currency is in favor of Singapore.

    I could not feel this atmosphere at Plaza Pelangi or AEON Tebrau or Toppen or even at Bukit Indah. It is here at KSL City that I could see the craziness of Singaporeans pampering themselves in hair salons, reflexology and wellness centers, massage parlors, beauty spa and nail studios.

    I am on my business trip in Singapore. I wanted to visit some of the best outlets, and in Singapore they all were quite expensive. Then I found Johor Premium Outlets that I visited daytime. Accessing there was easy by MRT, bus and Grap (all together 30-40 dollars there and back).
    I've been previously to USA outlets, and the prices of Nike, Calvin Klein, Under Armour, Adidas, etc. here were of course much higher than there. The sales were only good if you bought many pieces at the same time. Overall, not so bad compared to Singapore.
    Then I visited Gucci, there was maybe 30min wait (it was public holiday at 5pm). There was good sales. Luckily, Gucci x Disney that I have always drooled, was in extra sale. The Gucci x Disney sale has started now few days ago and the shop assistant told me that the stuff will all be sold in a few weeks. So if you like Gucci x Disney, I suggest you to go there and you can find great deals. I paid less than half from the retail price.

    To sum it up, I was very surprised by the prices at Gucci, they were not so bad. And I liked the JPO area very much, it was clean and not-so-crowded, you can easily access there by taxi. But if you dont have any particular things in mind that you want to buy, maybe it is not worth of visit.

    A good alternative place to shop besides mid valley, this has Oriental Kopi outlet which is bigger and less packed. We visited on a weekday and it was very pleasant to dine and shop. It’s spacious and has the shops similar to Mid Valley.

    Very colorful and beautiful temple with thousands of glass mosaics. Its small and in not in a noticeable location. Fairly new so most locals don't know it off the top of their heads. There is an entrance fee for foreigners which was shocking to me as a Hindu as we don't charge to visit temples but nonetheless this temple has a fee.

    This temple was founded by Tan Hiok Nee, a wealthy and influential Teochew businessman in Singapore and Johor during the 19th century. Jalan Tan Hiok Nee which was a road located within walking distance from the temple was named after him.

    The temple is one of the oldest structure in Johor Bahru and become a unifying symbol among the 5 Chinese ethnic groups, namely, the Hokkein, the Cantonese, the Teochew, Hakka and Hainanese. The 5 deities in the temple are representative of each of the 5 ethnic groups:

    Yuan Tian Shang Di (元天上帝) (大老爷)
    Hong Xian Da Di (洪仙大帝) (洪仙公)
    Gan Tian Da Di (感天大帝)
    Hua Guang Da Di (华光大帝)
    Zhao Da Yuan Shuai (赵大元帅)

    Tan Hiok Nee was able to command the respect of the other ethnic groups because he was able to gain the favor of the Johor Sultan who appointed him as Major China of Johor, the highest ranking Chinese official in his government.

    Unlike the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British who came to colonalise Malaya, the Chinese like Hiok Nee amassed wealth through sheer diligence and entrepreurship and had no political ambition. They chose to live harmoniously with the local Malay rulers and help to create a peaceful and conducive business environment by unifying the Chinese ethnic groups .

    The prosperity of today Johor Bahru is due to the solid foundation laid down by these pioneers and the harmonious relationship enjoy by all the races. The Temple continues to be a living symbol of the mission of the Chinese entrepreneurs in Johor Bahru.

    Huge new mall. Quite a distance away though from JB customs. If don't drive, take Grab ( about 10-15mins from City Square) - cheap fare, about RM10 one way. Lots of food & retail options. Direct link to St Giles Southkey Hotel.. Nice new big hotel - in our opinion, the best in JB.
