Johor Bahru Shopping – Shops, Stores, Best Buys & Inside Tips

Johor Bahru Shopping

It may be home to some beautiful palaces and waterfront scenery, but Johor Bahru is also the perfect place in Malaysia to do some shopping. With tons of options available, here are what other visitors to the city have given as suggestions for Johor Bahru Shopping and the best malls, outlets, plazas and tips to get you through.


As soon as you step off the train station in Johor Bahru you’ll find a brand new mall unfolding before you. If you’ve travelled here for the day or the week you’ll have plenty of shopping options at this Central Mall.

Tebrau City is said by some to be the biggest and best mall that Johor Bahru has to offer. It boasts shops such as G2000, MNG, Giordano, MAC, Espirit and more. There are also smaller shops for those who’d prefer cheaper prices over brand names. On top of all of the store options there’s an equally vast array of eatery options ranging through Japanese, Macau, Hong Kong, Italian, American, and Malaysian flavors.

Try some tasty treats at Pelangi Mall near the causeway. On the ground floor you’ll find many stalls with festive goodies to try and buy, especially during festive seasons.


If you’re looking for a good outlet to browse, try out Joho Premium Outlet. With 80 different stores to choose from you’ll be sure to hunt down the deals and discounts you’re eager for. You’ll find everything from DKNY to sportswear giants like Adidas and Nike, and some stores such as Coach have long lines for checkout.


Some of the best items available at Johor Bahru shops are the cultural clothing and fabrics. At Plaza Angsana there’re plenty of beautiful Malay costumes such as batik, sarung, baju kurung, and textiles. You may find fixed prices in the larger stores, but smaller shops are usually open to some bartering.
