Monday 1day to JB

Hi guys! I'm planning to go JB on the upcoming Monday with wife by public transport.
Please recommend me where to go.

Prefer somewhere very safe & easy like 1 bus straight as wife is pregnant (30weeks already). No grab/uber/cab involve.

I'm thinking either just Citysquare or Bukit Indah.
Personally I like shopping at supermarket but think my wife will be bored at Bukit Indah?

Any advice?

What you plan to do there? If so pregnant, and dun want to take uber/grab/taxi, then just take a train/bus to JB Sentral. Then walk across to JB City Square. Kaotim. Walk around, have lunch at Dragon-i, maybe watch a movie. Walk until shiok, then come back to Singapore.

No car, troublesome to carry shopping back, isn't it?
Furthermore, your wife is pregnant.

Problem is TS doesn't wanna take uber/grab/taxi. Wife is 30 months preggers, better don't take bus lah. So, taking into account their considerations I suggested City Square Mall lor.

Yup, I'd go with KSL being the preferred destination over City Square, if you don't mind the travelling.

I've read so many negative stories of Uber/Grab here, that I've only been using Grab in Malaysia, namely Melaka and JB. All trips went reasonably well, many were very friendly.

I've never used Uber/Grab here in SG, just don't feel comfortable about it.

However, however, however, I don't recommend the combo of Preggy Wifey + Monday + KSL/City Square + Public Transport, unless you can deal with the stress coming from the crowd. KSL pasar malam day is never a good day of the week to visit unless you're joining that crowd.

Oops! 30 weeks, not 30 months hahahah!

I've used Grab/Uber in Malaysia many times. In Penang, KL, Melaka, Kuching. No issues so far. My friends in KL use Grab and Uber all the time too. In fact, one guy sold off his Type-R so now using Uber everywhere.

Go City Square Mall followed by KSL ba.

I would suggest you shopping in city square followed by supermarket and pasar malam in KSL. There's a pasar malam every Monday outside KSL. After that you can take a bus back from there.

If scare too tired, book a hotel and stay overnite. A nice boutique hotel cost around SGD50+/- only.


By the way, why you still want to go Malaysia, your wife is 30 weeks, meaning 7.5 months? The stomach quite big already leh. Later anything happen very troublesome especially in Malaysia.

Want a short vacation just go Sentosa. You may consider Costa Sand Resort Sentosa if on budget.
