    Lots of great rides for the whole family. Our pre-teen kids enjoyed it throughly! Excellent service though the ride staff could streamline things more to make the queues smaller.

    From booking via Facebook to being warmly greeted, to the fabulous gentle boat trip, everything was excellent. An abundance of fireflies. Some trees were so full of them, to a British Expat it reminded me of a winter wonderland. So many twinkling lights in the trees.

    The boat captain even knows where the monitor lizard sleeps and pointed it out.

    I cannot recommend highly enough how much you should see this attraction and support the family that offers it.

    One of the oldest malls in JB, it’s packed with local stalls. No clear directory! 2 floors of beauty and massage There are deals to be had in the pop up foyer shops, but cluttery to get around. A drop off kids playground in the basement.

    A good alternative place to shop besides mid valley, this has Oriental Kopi outlet which is bigger and less packed. We visited on a weekday and it was very pleasant to dine and shop. It’s spacious and has the shops similar to Mid Valley.

    I would recommend to all those history lovers out there. I learn a lot about the heritage of Johor after visiting this museum. One of Johor Bahru founding father was Wong Ah Fook and I was curious to learn more about him. This museum had allowed me to get to know his history and the impact he had made in shaping Johor Bahru

    Used to live in JB 2 decades ago and Kemayan City was a famous landmark then, for the wrong reasons. Then WCT came into the picture, reviving the abandoned project.

    This was my first time in the rejuvenated mall and I was surprised the whole place was lively despite it was just early Friday morning. Lots of shops and restaurants on all floors. All the famous retail brands have a presence there. There's even an ice skating rink.

    Parking wasn't expensive. I can't remember how long I was in the mall but I paid only RM3.30.

    Very colorful and beautiful temple with thousands of glass mosaics. Its small and in not in a noticeable location. Fairly new so most locals don't know it off the top of their heads. There is an entrance fee for foreigners which was shocking to me as a Hindu as we don't charge to visit temples but nonetheless this temple has a fee.

    I visited KSL Mall on Monday. The Pasar Malam sets up every Monday in front of KSL from 4 pm to 9 pm. Quite a long stretch of makeshift stalls along Jalan Seladang. Bus F100 pick-up point was diverted to the other exit near KFC and Old Chang Kee on every Monday due to the road closure.

    While the make-shift stalls were setting up at about 4 pm, I went to have a look. From durians, jackfruits, drinks, vegetables, fish, toys, dumplings, kueh kueh to roasted ducks, grocery items, satay, otak otak, buns, corns, etc, etc, you can find a diversified range of items here. I saw queues at stalls selling roasted duck, the rojak, jackfruits, fried bee hoon, kuey teow. Residents from Taman Abad also flooded at the fresh vegetables to select their vegetables. While the cold drinks look refreshing and thirst quenching, I would not buy them as their color don't look that natural. It may be labeled soursop, avocado or mulberry and the fruits were displayed side by side, I doubt their authenticity as the drinks appears artificial with color additives.

    The fragrant smell of the burning satay was tempting, and I noticed one only stall operated by a female Malay to have attracted more customers than those by males. Probably, her satay sticks are more meaty and cheaper. Rojak, Zhu Chang Fen and Mui Chee stalls were also quite a favorite. The jackfruit stalls also attracted many buyers as the jackfruits were processed on the spot and freshly cut.

    I like the Hakka specialty stall selling the Yam abacus (suan pan zi), stinky tofu. The Thai mango sticky rice, the Yaki Gyoza, Penang Laksa, Arisan Fried chicken, Teochew Traditional Oyster puff and the Kampar Rojak look unique and appealing.

    This temple was founded by Tan Hiok Nee, a wealthy and influential Teochew businessman in Singapore and Johor during the 19th century. Jalan Tan Hiok Nee which was a road located within walking distance from the temple was named after him.

    The temple is one of the oldest structure in Johor Bahru and become a unifying symbol among the 5 Chinese ethnic groups, namely, the Hokkein, the Cantonese, the Teochew, Hakka and Hainanese. The 5 deities in the temple are representative of each of the 5 ethnic groups:

    Yuan Tian Shang Di (元天上帝) (大老爷)
    Hong Xian Da Di (洪仙大帝) (洪仙公)
    Gan Tian Da Di (感天大帝)
    Hua Guang Da Di (华光大帝)
    Zhao Da Yuan Shuai (赵大元帅)

    Tan Hiok Nee was able to command the respect of the other ethnic groups because he was able to gain the favor of the Johor Sultan who appointed him as Major China of Johor, the highest ranking Chinese official in his government.

    Unlike the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British who came to colonalise Malaya, the Chinese like Hiok Nee amassed wealth through sheer diligence and entrepreurship and had no political ambition. They chose to live harmoniously with the local Malay rulers and help to create a peaceful and conducive business environment by unifying the Chinese ethnic groups .

    The prosperity of today Johor Bahru is due to the solid foundation laid down by these pioneers and the harmonious relationship enjoy by all the races. The Temple continues to be a living symbol of the mission of the Chinese entrepreneurs in Johor Bahru.
