How to Get to These Restaurants In Johor Bahru

 

1. Private Car

The best, simplest and most affordable option by far is hiring a private car company like SGMYTAXI to drive you around. This service is very affordable and the drivers have a lot of experience.

SGMYTAXI KY Tan

They know where all the local restaurants and locations are, making it simple for you to find even those restaurants which may be “hidden”. You can go as many places as you would like and you will not have to worry about traffic laws, gas, waiting or getting directions.

 

2. Driving

If you happen to bring your own car with you on your vacation you can easily use that to get around the city. To view the traffic at Woodlands Causeway Checipoint and Tuas 2nd Link Checkpoint before depart to Johor Bahru, click here: Woodlands & Tuas Checkpoint Live Traffic Camera. On the other hand, you can also rent a car in the city, though it can be a bit expensive. You will need to keep in mind that you’ll have to pay for fuel, learn the local traffic laws, pay for parking and make sure that your car is always locked whenever you leave it parked.

 

3. Local Taxi

If you are worried about driving your own car, or don’t have one, you can always hail a taxi ride around the city. There are various taxi companies that you can use to get you around Johor Bahru, though every company has different rates. Another downfall to getting a taxi is that you have to find a new one every time you want to travel to a new place, and it can get quite expensive.
