There are a couple of tips I would like to share with you before you go into your shopping spree:

  • Money: Cash is usually the safest way to pay for your goods (especially for food items in food courts). Please make sure you bring along some Ringgit Malaysia as most places do not accept foreign currency. However, credit cards which can be used internationally are acceptable in supermarkets or most retail shops.
  • Transportation: I have the best shopping experience in JB when I decide to use private car service instead of public transportation or driving. I find that SGMYTAXI gives me the best service so far because they provide ample spaced vehicles that I am able to sit comfortably even after filling it with my shopping bags.

SGMYTAXI: Private Taxi/Car From Singapore To JB Shopping Malls

  • GST Limits: Free GST for goods up to SGD100 if you have been out of Singapore for less than 48 hours. If your total good is more than SGD100, do declare it at SG customs and be ready to pay 7% GST of your total sum.
