Heart of JB

You get almost everything you need from this street. A walk and a cup of coffee observing the locals, chilled yourself from the hot weather in the Mall. Very bad traffic though.

Not the place for faint hearted or foreigners esp you don t look local as there are lots of hustlers, beggars, to hustle you besides snatch thieves prying on local and foreign unsuspecting handbag carriers. There have been casualties. Being the adventurer I m , the side streets next to glitzy city square offers me a different world where you... More

Sad to see, Jalan Wong Ah Fook hasn't improved over the years from when I first set foot on it more than 30 years ago. It's a bit cleaner now but you still get a lot of the local hoodlums hanging around the bus stops with taxis refusing to use their meters. Even City Square is infested with young hoodlums... More

The road is wide and no traffic jam on the way. Taking a stroll is good for the health. Walking around here when still in the morning has a special experience, but still be aware of any potential criminals could be.

Not the best time now to visit. Construction work going on for flood mitigation system, traffic hardly moves especially weekdays. Avoid when possible. Many massage parlors around, not good for the town. Don't ever walk alone along the shops at this street.

Upon clearing the Malaysian Customs bring one's to the Shopping Malls of JB City Square and Komtar JBCC. Once you exit these malls is Jalan Wong Ah Fook. Opposite these malls, there are many Indian Muslims food stalls and some Chinese eateries. This is a very busy street in JB where many nationalities of people from all over Asia walking... More

This street is almost open 24/7. The food street in this road is amazing serving all sorts of food from frest stir fried vegetables to non veg delicacies. Choose the eat out place carefully as some places are a bit unhealthy to eat. Take a few rounds and choose the best place you find suitable on the day to eat.

The eatery along the area with plenty of food choices to choose from especially in the morning and evening times and the rustic charm the old JB street brought. But could have been cleaner.
