Busy, along with the Traffic Jams

The CBD of Johor Bahru. Lots of people, tourists, business, touts and thieves. Watch your valuables. Lots of shops and good food around.

Avoid this street if you could because of its jam. But it will be good you could go on foot. Several big shopping complexes like the City Square and Komtar JBCC are located here.

This road has many eateries. Nice to walk down the road. So much cleaner. Much wider too. Two big malls - City Square Mall (your typical shopping centre) and Komtar ( a more upbeat mall with branded shops) are found along this road. The famous curry fish head is there. Across the road, there is famous roast duck place, kway... More

Jalan Wong Ah Fook (Wong Ah Fook Road) is by far one of the more well known landmarks of Johor Bahru. I would not go as far as to say ALL Johorians know of this famous road but I am confident that most do. The road is named after a historical figure of Johor who established himself as a contractor...

This road is a busy road in the middle of Johor Bahru town. Traffic is usually very very heavy, and parking can be a problem during weekdays and weekends. There are many shops and outlets here, with many malls.

Wow! Crowd and traffic jam is a mild statement. But it is an interesting place. If one should take the trouble and walk the stretch, it is an experience to browse the shops, which one would never do due to the blocked slow traffic. To cross the road requires a skill , a smile and hand outstretched. There are food... More

We love all the old Chinese/old shops so this was good for us. Crossing the road from the mall required a bit of fancy foot work but it was easily done. We crossed to look in the Big Bundle shop (second hand) They had plenty of clothing but nothing to our liking. Much of it was from America. We came... More

Crowded and jammed areas. Never like to be around this area unless I have no choice. Seems like the road design is the problem.
