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

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
