Written by: Circles.Life
Suffering from cabin fever and yearning for a quick getaway? A day trip to JB might be just the thing you need. From thrift-shopping to cafe-hopping, there are so many options across the causeway to manifest your perfect day off.
We might not be the smartest locals, but under the guise of trying out our latest travel program Jetpac, a few of us Circles.Life employees managed to squirrel in a 2D1N work trip just to make full use of the generous roaming offers and travel perks that come with it. Get paid to flex our epic work lives on the gram? We’re SO down for that.
Here’s a list of hot spots (pun intended 🌝) you have to check out on your next trip to Johor Bahru.
1. Seven Oaks Bakery - Plush Festive-themed cafe with beautiful pastries
Location: 134, Jalan Serampang, Taman Pelangi, 80400 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
Visiting this cafe is an instant mood-lifter - we felt like we were walking into wonderland! With a huge array of cakes and pastries inspired by regional cuisine, accompanied with shakes and sodas in all sorts of fruity flavors, you’re never running out of material for the gram.
Plus: if you’re on Jetpac, you’re never running out of data for the gram either 🌝 With rollover data up to 10GB, and instant add-ons available in one click, your roaming experience could never get easier.
2. Restoran Hua Mui - Rustic Kopitiam with street views that’ll take you down memory lane
Location: 131, Jalan Trus, Bandar Johor Bahru, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
A morning kopi experience couldn’t get classier than this. Located in a two-storey corner unit, Restoran Hua Mui has everything you’d expect out of an old school coffeeshop - great coffee, kaya toast and Hainanese cuisine. Throw in a tasteful, retro-inspired interior, and window seats with views of the bustling streets of Johor, and you’ll definitely catch a vibe.
3. Home by Tales of Paws - A cozy room filled with cute cats to cuddle
Location: 121, Jalan Serampang, Taman Sri Tebrau, 80050 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
Get all the kitty therapy you need at this popular cat cafe! Home by Tales of Paws is the perfect destress destination, where visitors can sit back and enjoy the company of adorable cats of different breeds. Hope your vacation isn’t too stressful an experience though!
Being on Jetpac might just take away some of your travel anxieties. With a travel eSIM that offers roaming services for over 50 destinations worldwide, you’ll never need to worry about staying connected wherever you’re headed.
4. JB Bazaar Karat - Bustling night market with street eats, clothes and accessories
Location: 26, 20, Jalan Segget, Bandar Johor Bahru, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
Located just a stone's throw away from customs, the JB Bazaar is a huge pasar malam with an incredible diversity of shopping offerings, from soft toys to streetwear and everything in between.
Midway through your retail therapy, enjoy affordable street snacks and even unique services such as henna art (if you’re game for it!)
5. Laser Battle Johor - Super affordable laser tag venue
Location: Lot MS-11, Johor Bahru City Square, 108, Jalan Wong Ah Fook, Bandar Johor Bahru, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
There’s nothing like a good game of laser tag to get your heart racing (and work off the extra calories you’ve consumed from all the pastries and milkshakes). Tucked away at a corner of JB City Square, Laser Battle Johor is a legit and affordable option to get that adrenaline rush going for your friends and family!
Also, pro-tip: You can actually use your Expedia vouchers earned from your Jetpac subscription to save some dollars when booking this experience!
