You can buy almost everything from clothes and toys at the local AEON Tebrau shopping center. Beauty salons for those who want to take a break from fitting rooms are located on the third floor here.

This shopping center was the most popular shopping destination for locals and visitors and a favorite holiday destination two or three decades ago. There aren't many stores here today. You can visit a McDonald's or relax in the beauty salon at Plaza Pelangi. This shopping center is quite popular with the locals. However, it is not distinguished by anything outstanding.

One of the most popular markets is open every Monday evening. It extends from the "KSL City Mall" to the Grand Paragon Hotel. Keep in mind that you will have to constantly fight your way through the crowd here. The market is loved by Malaysians, Singaporeans, and tourists.
Sultan Ibrahim Building in Johor Bahru, Malaysia You can taste local dishes in their most authentic form at the market at Jalan Wong Ah Fook in the heart of the city.

The market itself is very Malaysian, with all the pros and cons of this country's trading style. Prices are generally accepted here. But you shouldn't buy electronics here.
