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.

This place will be very crowded on 11th March this year for the Chingay Parade. The parade which is a unified performance from all Chinese races in Malaysia attracted almost half a million during last year event and we are expecting similar or many greater turn out thia year.

Walking around here will bring you the memories of the old johor bahru. Lots of shops to look at, and you can even buy some gold here since goldsmith shops are abundant here.

It is always relaxing to walk after a heavy meal. Jalan Wong Ah Fook is a great place to do some window shopping or watch busy footsteps walking past. Do not bring so much cash due to the obvious.

A shopping trip along JB's Wong Ah Fook Rd is not to be missed. There are malls, temple, shops and heritage streets along the way like City Square, JB Komtar (refurbished), ethnic cuisine and lots of boutiques inside the malls. We bought new year goodies and clothes here every year. Shop till you drop!

Never walk on this street alone. Get a partner to be with you especially at night. Watch where you are walking as most drain covers are gone.

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
