A very busy street. There are shopping malls and different banks along the street. Always traffic jam because lots of buses stop aside waiting for the passenger. It's difficult to find a car park here if you are driving.

Shopping places all around. Street can be quite congested at certain hours. There is even a nite market although I am not sure of the timing. Locals tend to be the ones who hang out at this area, but they are quite harmless. After all the bad rep that this part of town has been receiving, it all boils down... More

The new malls are nice but there is lots of buses waiting along the road. I wouldn't go again but the malls are worth it if you are heading in that direction

The place is roughly divided north-south, north comprising Muslim/halal stalls, south the rest. But the food is largely subjected to the elements, rain from above and flooding from beneath, and filth on walls and splashing in between. There's a preponderance of sup kambing tulang in the halal area, with aggressive promoters coming at you, and on the other side, there's... More

Next to Jalan Wong Ah Fook, night time food bazaar at Jalan Meldrum is a must visit if you want to try local hawker food. There you can find famous fried kuey teow, oyster fried egg(old couples selling for almost 3 decades), popiah(another old couples), soup kambing, ikan bakar, etc. Tips : order small size and you can try out...

There are variety foodstuffs here from malay, chinese, indian and western too. But be careful when you walk along the road, you... More

Being a major 1-way road in JB, it is also one of the busiest roads in the city. The attractions there are City Square and KOMTAR. Next to it, is Jalan Tun A Razak where CIQ/JB Central and KTM located. Another road which is parallel to Jalan Wong Ah Fook is Jalan Trus, where you could find Kotaraya, Putri Pacific... More

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. The place is littered with unknown uncertainty. Motorcycles gives me the chill. Stares that gives me the que to get out of the place. No longer bustling... More

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
