Danga City Mall in Johor Bahru

The Danga City Mall in Johor Bahru is perhaps the only Mall that has a direct railway link at its door step. This means that you can take a train from Singapore to reach Danga City Mall and vice versa. To get an update of the time schedule, you can visit the Danga City Mall website at – Dangacitymall.com. The website also gives you the bus schedule and what bus service that goes to this mall.

Personally, I find Danga City Mall a rather quiet mall with much less people coming here as compared to say City Square in Johor Bahru. Firstly, most people may not be familiar with its exact location. What I did was to take a cab to this mall from City Square which cost about $5/- while some taxi may even asked for $1 or $2 dollars more. Perhaps what the developer of this mall could do is to provide a free shuttle bus service from City Square to Danga City Mall at say one hour interval.

Secondly, there are lots of shops that have not been leased out. These empty shopfronts does not create a good shopping atmosphere for this mall.  Yes, the anchor tenant Metrojaya store is there for those who wants to shop in this department store. But you need a spread of vibrant niche stores to give people a good shopping experience. Anchor tensnts does not make a mall successful. You need vibrancy and create the incentives for people to come to this mall.

I will try to visit this mall again perhaps at the end of this year. Hopefully there will be more improvements and more niche stores been added to this mall. I will be also be writing a blog on my visit to Danga Bay, which is a major development for Johor Bahru. By the way, Danga City Mall and Danga Bay are not located in the same site. Danga Bay is near to the beach, while Danga City Mall is near the flyover in the city of Johor Bahru.
