In the past i would like to make a detour with my friends to have a nice meal. But with the security in that area worsen. We decided not to take a risk.

WAF and its shopping malls were the meeting points for visitors from across the causeway. Back then the several adjoining streets were abound with cheap and delicious food joints. The JB Sentral had totally marginalised WAF with CIQ traffic moved away from the area. With a new JB-Singapore subway line, things will get worse for the retailers and food store... More

This used to be a very busy and vibrant street but with the new JB Sentral, most of the traffic is directed to the causeway, resulting in low human traffic and consequently less street hawkers. Now it feels like a tired old town. Quite sad really.

This is one of the few main roads that runs through Johore Bahru town. 2 major shopping centres, City Square and the newly renovated TAR Complex are on this road. Do not walk on this road because there are often drug addicts and snatch thieves.

This place is not good especially for the family trip. You dont enjoy much but breathing the dirty air and walked along the noisy street for nothing.
