Urbanisation of the local scene in Johor Bahru has attracted tourists to visit the once-quaint state which is situated at the southernmost part of Peninsular Malaysia. With Singapore as its neighbour and the convenience of the Johor-Singapore Causeway, Johor Bahru has also become a popular destination and departure point for cross-border travel.
One may choose to fly, to take a train or a bus from Singapore to Malaysia, but for those who choose the comfort offered by a taxi service, it must be noted that only specially-licensed Singaporean taxis may enter Malaysia for pick-up and drop-off at the Larkin Taxi Terminal.
Executive taxis (with a taxi sign) are also available for Singapore to Malaysia transfers at a flat rate from S$65 onwards, the price varying according to destination, but the pick-up and drop-off point will be restricted to the Ban San Street Terminal in Singapore.
Private limousines which allow for passengers to be picked up anywhere in Singapore and dropped off anywhere in Malaysia are also available at flat rates beginning from S$80, and can be booked for here or by dropping a call at +65 6535 3534 (Singapore) and +603 2630 8400 (Malaysia).
With that said, Johor Bahru offers a robust selection of tourist-favourite spots which will tantalize the adventure-seeker in you. If you’re on a trip to respite from the bustling scene of Singapore, Johor Bahru also offers you a getaway experience which will re-energize you in no time!
Shopping in Johor Bahru City Centre
Sample the shopping scene of the Johor Bahru district by prowling through the various shops housed in the Johor Bahru City Square. Indulge yourself in retail therapy as your peruse fashion outlets such as Uniqlo and H&M, and if you have the time, catch a movie at the Cathay Cineplex and give your feet a rest before you head for the next round of shopping.
If you have an insatiable craving for retail goods, visit the Galleria @ Kotaraya and let it spoil you with its outlet selection, which hosts a mixture of both international as well as local brands. While the mouth-watering retail scene at the Galleria is great for shoppers, for those who have worked up an appetite, drop by the in-house Food Hall to grab a bite to eat.
For a ride to both these retail paradises, book a cross-border limo service at +65 6535 3534 (Singapore) or +603 2630 8400 (Malaysia) to begin your journey from anywhere in Malaysia or Singapore. Flat rates begin at SGD80 and prices may vary depending on the vehicle chosen for the transfer as well as the destination.
