There’s an Angry Birds Activity Park right in its vicinity. When you’re all tired out, you could dine at Dragon-I, Tony Roma’s or Pizza Hut. Grab your makeup tools from the ground floor before you head on out of the place. It’s slightly less busy than its neighbour as a mall, which is perfect for me. Johor Premium Outlets Image: johortransport.com This is the go-to place in Johor at the moment if you want premium goods at knockout prices. Yes, it's not just City Square JB if you're looking for retail therapy. You’d get brands like Coach, Gucci, Prada and Burberry at a steal here. There’s a relatively decent food court that serves local food and drinks if you’d like to rest your feet and take a bite. AEON Tebrau Image: johortransport.com This is another notable mall in JB. It’s gigantic and you’d find more popular brands here. The G2000, Giordano, Esprit and MNG types. Food’s a variety – You’d be able to get Malaysian, Japanese, Macau, Italian and even American food under this sole roof. There’s TGV cinemas plus Jusco for your shopping needs. And you’d get to browse for books at Harris’. All-in-all it’s good value for money, especially if you’re travelling with a bunch of friends or as a family, Sutera Mall Image: gowhere.my Another large mall which is a bit out of the way from JB Central (around 30 mins without traffic), but a good spot to check out. The place has a vegetarian tea house which is pretty famous among the locals. And if you like to read, visit My Library. And after your visit to the mall, a row of restaurants awaits you across the mall and if you'd ask me, those restaurants out there would well overshadow the food in City Square JB, be it quality or price. AEON Bukit Indah Image: tripadvisor.com.sg This place is about 20 minutes away from JB Central. You could take the CW3 bus from Jurong East or CW6 from Boon Lay to get here. It’s swarmed with food outlets like Tang Shifu, Sizzling Stonegrill and Nando’s. You won’t find big brands here, but you could shop around for books at Popular, or check out Toys R Us for presents for your kids. There’s a TGV cinema outlet here too! But just so you know, parking there might be a little hassle: they've got a big open-air car park, but they've also a flood of cars coming in every minute.
