    go across the causeway, after the malaysian immigration, walk straight for a few hundred meters, then you will see city square, you will not miss it. for the shops there, quite ok, but not fantastic.

    Less than few hundred metres.

    After malaysian immigration
    walk towards a underpass
    go up walk along the road
    go all the way straight...
    (you will go through petrol station, and along a very lousy shopping centre lotsa tour agencies by the pathway)
    you will see sort of a T junction, and opposite the pink color building is city square. You can go up the stairs which is at your immediate left, which leads to the 2nd level, where the first shop you see in City Square is FOS. Go in somemore and you will enter the shopping mall.

    Less than 5mins for the entire journey. Good luck!

    City Square...

    Look out ofr it. It's below a tall brownish building, can't miss the building. It's like 30 plus floors tall.

    Perhaps you should try the new JUSCO! it's near the macdonald, around RM20 from immigration, 10-15mins away. Lots of nice shops there for shopping!

    hi, you mean the Tabrau City? Tabrau city is quite a big shopping mall, with lots of branded shops.

    what do u mean by 'near the macdonald? you mean u can take a bus there to go to Tabrau city?

    Shopping in City Square will be like shopping in Parkway Parade in Singapore. Nothing much and you'll most probably see quite alot of familiar shop names you see locally. Worth a trip if you have not been there before but not really interesting if you want to make it a regular place to go to everytime you're there. Enjoy your trip!

    oh, nope.. if u drive northwards along the main road, u will pass by a macdonald at the left side, and Jusco is just there.

    actually it's Tabrau City. Jusco is like 'taka in Ngee Ann City'. haha

    no lah, Tebrau City is quite far away. I don't think it is a good idea to WALK to Tebrau City lah. Someone said there is a shuttle bus behind city square, but need to find out.


    Canonised: Sorry lah, bro. My malay is limited.
