Johor Bahru, otherwise known simply as JB, is located in southern peninsular Malaysia and is the capital of the state of Johor. Once just a small and sleepy fishing village, JB has evolved into one of the country’s largest and most diverse cities and a huge financial, transport, and manufacturing hub for Malaysia. It is also among Malaysia’s fastest-growing cities and a booming tourist destination.
Johor Bahru is situated across the causeway from Singapore, which is why it has become a popular entry or exit point for the country. The border town of JB welcomes millions of visitors every year, most of which are coming for a short trip from Singapore or are stopping over before making their way to Singapore. Nowadays, however, JB is turning into somewhat of a tourist hotspot due to its lovely architecture, shopping options, great food, and theme parks.
Whether you’re a local wanting to know more about your city or a visitor who wants to experience a new culture, Johor Bahru surely has something for you to enjoy. Make your trip even more fun and convenient with Bounce’s short-term storage services.
Thousands of people arrive at Johor Bahru every day, whether they’re just passing by for a quick stop or staying for a while to explore the hidden gems in the city. Whatever the situation may be, visitors can take advantage of Bounce’s services while in the city. Through strategically-located partners, Bounce makes it easy for users to store their bags temporarily while they get on with their plans for the day.
Top Things to Do
Although not the first city that comes to mind when thinking of visiting Malaysia, Johor Bahru is definitely one to check out, especially if you are already passing by along the way to or from Singapore. JB offers plenty by way of museums, architectural landmarks, shopping selections, and excellent local cuisine.
Johor Bahru is packed with small but fascinating museums that primarily focus on the art and history of the city and the state of Johor. If you want to get to know more about JB and its culture, here are some museums to visit.
Royal Abu Bakar Museum: One of the oldest structures in the city, this museum is the top cultural attraction in Johor Bahru. Established in 1866, this was the former residence of the Sultan and was converted into a museum in 1982. Royal Abu Bakar Museum is filled with artifacts and relics once owned by the Royal Family. (Bag policy: There are restrictions on the size of bags that can be brought inside the museum. To avoid any trouble, store your bags with Bounce before your visit.)
Chinese Heritage Museum: Perhaps the best way to learn and understand JB's Chinese heritage is through this museum. The four-story museum tells the lives of the Chinese immigrants that came here during the 1800s and 1900s. See unique Chinese-brought artifacts such as documents, porcelain, coins, photos, and musical instruments. (Bag policy: For safety reasons, the museum doesn’t allow guests to bring big bags or luggage inside. Instead, you can locate a Bounce partner nearby and leave your stuff there.)
Pasir Gudang Kite Museum: Found in the town of the same name, this one-of-a-kind museum is dedicated to showcasing kites of all shapes and sizes. The Kite Museum in Pasir Gudang also hosts the International Kite Festival held each February. (Bag policy: Luggage and big backpacks are prohibited inside, but guests may leave their things at the front desk. Another option would be to find a nearby Bounce partner and securely store your stuff there.)
Shopping in Johor Bahru means going to big malls and complexes where you will find a wide range of boutiques of well-known brands. JB is known as a shopping destination, especially for neighbors from Singapore, who want to save money and buy items at a lower cost. Here are the best places to spend some dough in Johor Bahru.
Johor Premium Outlets: While there are plenty of outlet stores in JB, Johor Premium is the most complete complex to explore for the best deals. This shopping haven carries a selection of global brands such as Versace, Michael Kors, Jimmy Choo, and more. Some items here have as much as 70% discount, which is why both locals and tourists flock to the outlet.
Komtar Johor Baru City Centre: One of the latest and most modern developments in Johor Baru, the shopping space covers over 900,000 square feet. It is the ultimate shopping destination in the city. Most of the stores here are international brands such as Chanel, Victoria’s Secret, Pandora, and Sephora. There is also a massive Metrojaya department store located in the mall and a souq bazaar for cool trinkets and souvenirs. For guests who have kids with them, check out the Angry Birds Activity Park on the 3rd floor.
Paradigm Mall: Established recently in 2017, Paradigm Mall is already one of JB’s top shopping malls. It is frequented by locals and Singaporeans. Aside from the usual big luxury brands, you will also find some home needs and furniture such as Harvey Norman, HomePro, and Akemiuchi. One thing’s for sure, there’s a little bit of everything to be found in Paradigm Mall.
Compared to other cities in Malaysia, Johor Bahru flies under the radar when it comes to dining. However, the city is actually a haven for foodies wanting to try all kinds of flavors. Whether you want to go for street food or taste Western dishes, there’s something for you to try.
Street food: You’d be remiss not to try the local street food in Johor Bahru. Malaysian cuisine is packed with flavor and definitely one of the country’s main draws. An institution known for its laksa (noodle soup) is W.W. Laksa House, where you can get large portions at affordable prices. Other local spots to check out are Roti Canai Bukit Chagar, Kerala Curry Hous,e and Mee Rebus Stulang Laut.
Seafood: Being surrounded by a huge fishing ground, it’s no surprise that Johor Bahru has a reputation for having some excellent seafood at low prices. There are plenty of these seafood spots to choose from. Some of the most famous are Todak Seafood Restaurant, Yi Jia Seafood, Ong Shun Seafood Restaurant, and Fatfish JB.
Western cuisine: While the local food is nothing short of amazing, there are times when you just want to replace all the curry and spices with some Western flavors. Luckily, Johor Bahru has a solid selection of restaurants serving international cuisine. For the best French food in town, head over to Chez Papa, one of JB’s most well-known restaurants. Other Western restaurants worth checking out are Gianni’s Trattoria (Italian), Grill Bar Steakhouse (American), and Macgregor’s (Irish).

This was my first time using this service and it worked seamlessly. I had no problems at all dropping my bag off at NYC Racquet Sports and it was just as easy picking it up. This location is a couple blocks from Penn Station, so it was perfect for exploring Manhattan for several hours before catching the train to Newark Airport for a late night flight. Will definitely use this service on future trips!
Really excellent service, right around the corner from A/C/E trains at Penn Station in New York. Popular and busy restaurant, too — but no one kept me waiting to drop off or pick up a bag.
This place is awesome, it’s near Macy’s and other souvenir shops, nearby food outlets too and near the Penn station in New York. This is the best place to leave your luggage for last minute shopping before you head to the airport via Penn station. Plus the Employees are very courteous and kind
