Top 6 Must Eat-and-Shop Places near JB Checkpoint

These days i've been doing some JB hopping and explored a few more places to Eat and Shop! Here, I am sharing with you some of the places i enjoy shopping and eating at! 

I believe alot of people travel to JB just to shop at City Square Mall which is short distance from the Checkpoint. It is a good mall for general things but it's not the only mall you can shop and have fun in JB! The newly opened Komtar JBCC have some good stuff and food too.

Fun Facts: Manhattan Fish Market in JB are same priced in Ringgit (so you save 3 times eating there)

About 10-15mins away by car from the Checkpoint, there's two Shopping mall you can go. First, will be KSL City Mall! A place with plenty of Stuff toys, food and manicure shops! Entertainment lovers will love Kbox JB version and also the Cinema there!


33, Jalan Seladang, Taman Abad, 80250 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia

And if you would like to explore more, it's 5mins walking distance to Holiday Plaza. (Don't hang your bags around, keep it firm and tight with you and don't walk alone for safety reasons)

Holiday Plaza have plenty of Phone shops which you can buy really awesome, cute and cheap phone accessories. They have competitive manicure shops and salons too. Go make your nails and wash your hair!!! LOL.

Both KSL City and Holiday Plaza cost rm12-20 to travel back and forth on cab from the Checkpoint.

Next, one of the bigger Shopping mall at JB is at Bukit Indah, it's about 20-30mins by car. Aeon Bukit Indah Shopping Center is where both the huge Jusco and Tesco supermarket met! It's a place to Shop, shop, shop! 

I love to shop Supermarket! So Aeon is like a heaven to me! It's more than any Supermarket... they have limited editions Pocky too! (For Pocky lovers! Hehe) 

There are some Cute shops around the mall too, just like this Cushy ones:  
 Food are not absolutely perfect here, but there are some good ones.

 Last but not least, this place is for people who love Food-hopping and always hungry for Yummilicious Food! 

Other than Food, this place feels a little Arty too. 
Jalan Ibrahim or rather Jalan Dhoby (a more common term for JB local), is a place with two famous and good old school bakeries. Also, afew modern cafe. 
Churros, coffee and icecream are included in those Food Menus in the Cafe/Restaurant around! You'll be surprised they have very trendy cafe/restaurant menus there! 
Moreover, they have really awesome Art-walls everywhere you go! Go and find your OOTD wall!

Fun facts: #Tanahairku is a Street Art project that brings together talented artists across Malaysia. 

I saw some of their Artwork in Penang, Malaysia too! So Awesome!
 Finally, at the back of Jalan Dhoby lies a old school biscuit shop sells really awesome aesthetic's snacks. Haha.  
So now, go hop, explore and take more pictures!

Travel back and forth on cab from Checkpoint is around rm11-15.
It's walking distance from City Square Mall too (but be safe).
