Experience on Saturday going to JB

Experience on Saturday going in JB.
Just share yesterday’s experience.

11.30am: Woodlands interchange
11.45am: CIQ. Pretty fast response from thumbprint machine compared to previose experiences. Saw some vendors monitoring at the counter.
11.45am: Queue for bus. Plenty of CW buses and long queues.
12.30pm: Reach JB immigration. Hall was packed full until don’t know is the end of queues. 1 counter can have 2 to 3 queues merging into 1 counter.
2.00pm: Cleared immigration.

City square to Aeon Dato Onn
30-45 minutes by Uber. Yesterday seemed not much Grab car on the road. Plenty of metered Grab taxi. More Uber yesterday.
Level 3 of Aeon Daton Oon are restaurants. Level 1 had Aeon supermarket. Checkout counters not packed like Aeon Tebrau.
Not much available grab/uber at 6pm to go back from Dato Oon. Waited quite a while before got a uber.

Cleared JB customs in 15 minutes. Traffic jam on causeway. Cleared CIQ in 15 minutes. The thumbprint scanner is slower compared to exiting SG.

Hope this helps planning a trip on Saturday.

One off. You manage this kind of timing for consecutive Saturdays then come and advise again. I go JB on an almost weekly basis, trust me you got lucky.

How's Aeon Dato Onn compared with Aeon Tebrau and Bukit Indah? Bigger? Smaller?

Dato Onn is smaller than Tebrau. Many people window shopping and not much buying. Sports planet was having 40% additional off sale price for selected items. Some shops yet to open. Did not see a cinema there, maybe miss it.

crowd wise, I think Tebrau is more packed... but price wise, I prefer Tebrau. Dato Onn is an upmarket area. seems to me that price are equally high

It's aptly named then since it is Dato.

Planning to drive to legoland via causeway.

Looking at the map, it seems very complicated to hit coastal highway.

Upon clearing JB custom, may I know if I should go up or down the slope?

Any clearer driving directions please? Thank you

Do you know this is the best way to head to LEGOLAND? There is basically no traffic light at all once you exit JB custom till you hit LEGOLAND.


Just go up the slope after exit JB custom and you're on Jalan Tun Abdul Razak road. Go all the way till you come near Danga Bay area look at the signboard "kota Iskandar" and "nusajaya". Google map in Malaysia already got street view, pls do some homework and familiarise on those intersection.
