    My kids enjoyed every little bits of Legoland. From the theme hotel rooms, to the theme park and even their lobby.
    The only downside was that both of my kids develop rashes all over their upper and lower extremities after playing around on the room carpet.
    My kids might have sensitive skin but I believe Legoland needs to also do something about their carpets. It could be dusty but it cannot be seen with our naked eyes.
    Other than that, they provide a good customer service.

    This is one of the better malls in jb with a decent range of shops and eateries including cafes. Near the causeway too. Can easily spend a few hours here.

    From booking via Facebook to being warmly greeted, to the fabulous gentle boat trip, everything was excellent. An abundance of fireflies. Some trees were so full of them, to a British Expat it reminded me of a winter wonderland. So many twinkling lights in the trees.

    The boat captain even knows where the monitor lizard sleeps and pointed it out.

    I cannot recommend highly enough how much you should see this attraction and support the family that offers it.

    Very colorful and beautiful temple with thousands of glass mosaics. Its small and in not in a noticeable location. Fairly new so most locals don't know it off the top of their heads. There is an entrance fee for foreigners which was shocking to me as a Hindu as we don't charge to visit temples but nonetheless this temple has a fee.

    Mall is huge! I visited during the Chinese Lunar Year with my family and being people from Singapore, we just wanna have a getaway to enjoy a full day here but did not expect it to be full of people. There were all sorts if food around on the Basement as well as the top floors serving. Queues were long and we ended up eating HongKong Cuisine which isn’t a good choice. Then we end the day at Penang Chendol on the basement as Old town Coffee was packed.

    Was in KSL Mall few days ago, shop variety is even lesser. So many claw machines arcade, phone accessories stalls. Clothes type not much style. Outside the mall, a lot of changes. A lot of car servicing shops instead catering to Singapore vehicles. Had lunch at one of the bak ku teh restaurant outside the mall.

    Super crowded night market outside KSL and happens every Monday. Strongly suggest you start walking from Hotel Grand Paragon downwards. Stall holders start setting up around 4.30pm and biz starts around 5.30pm. There's this famous stinky tofu stall operating from a van right in front of Grand Paragon. Queue is crazy.
    Many repeated items sold eg: fried carrot cake, curry chee Cheong fun with Wu Xiang Xia Bing, Dim Sum stalls, Kueh Kueh stalls, fruits stalls.
    The gravy for curry chee Cheong fun was too watery; many locals went for their sweet sauce instead. Assam laksa looks nice as well.
    Only 1 stall selling roasted chestnut and remember to take queue number before you start queuing.
    Saw 3 stalls selling stinky tofu 1 stall at each end of the market and 1 less popular stall in middle of a small lane.
    Fried carrot cake is those traditional chunky type with loads of egg. There are a few Appam stalls.
    1 rojak stall with super long queue next to the roasted chestnut.

    They take Touch n Go cards for parking now. RM26 for the whole day, 6am to 8pm

    May Shops shut during the Pandemic and they haven’t returned.

    But the shops that remain? Enough of them to distract you for maybe an hour or so.

    And right next to City Square JB for more shopping!

    This is one of the oldest Chinese temple in JB. Lots of history. Still very well maintained. Rather small, but worth a short visit if you are in the vicinity.

    This is one place you should visit in the late evening, great food and restaurants, small stalls and electric scooters for hire. There are some great sculptures and the water fountain that is choreographed to various songs is mesmerising.

    The entrace fee is so cheap only rm2 for adult and free for below 2 years old.
    The size of the zoo is rather small compared to other zoo but worth the price. Can easily spend 1 hour here.
    Shady trees, no need to bring umbrella.
    All cages also filled with animals though the quantitt in each mighg be 1 or 2 only for each type of animal.
    Lots of lions, birds and tortoises. No giraffe.
    My 1 year old kid likes it here

    I would recommend to all those history lovers out there. I learn a lot about the heritage of Johor after visiting this museum. One of Johor Bahru founding father was Wong Ah Fook and I was curious to learn more about him. This museum had allowed me to get to know his history and the impact he had made in shaping Johor Bahru
