Perling Mall Johor Bahru

Took a trip to Perling Mall, which is located at Jalan Persisiran Perling Satu, Taman Perling. Going to Perling Mall from Singapore – take CW3 from Jurong East Bus Interchange and it will take you right outside Perling Mall. The journey can take more than 1.5 hours if there is a jam at the Customs and Immigration at the Second Link.

Perling Mall is a 2 storey mall which I think had been refurbished and renovated not too long ago. The anchor tenant is Giant Supermarket; and there are other shops like Marybrown Restaurant, Seasons bakery, Cosway, Watsons, etc. Interesting there is also a cinema as well.

I don’t see tourists here  as compared to City Square Mall in Johor Bahru. I think it served mainly residents staying around Taman Perling area.  There is a brand new hotel opposite Perling Mall – it is called Amerin Hotel.

The atmosphere in the mall is more relaxed and slow. It is just liked a typical small neighborhood mall that you see in Malaysia.

Aeon Mall – Permas Jaya, Johor Bahru

The Aeon Mall at Permas Jaya is a single storey mall. It is an older mall as compared to Aeon Mall at Bukit Indah.  There are limited variety of shops, a food court, some F&B outlets and the Aeon Supermarket.

The mall is accessible by an overhead pedestrian bridge. I walked from Renaissance Hotel to the mall; and took less than 15 minutes with a easy stroll. However do watch out for vehicles on the road and uneven paths when walking.

The mall is spacious and there are lots of bench to sit and rest if you tired. It seems that there are more food outlets around Permas Jaya. So if you are looking for fashion items, clothes, electronic accessories, etc – this is not the place.
