Good and very helpful location listing of Pasar Malams by A2002. But, the information is almost 8 years old. Can someone who follows the PM scene be kind enough to give an update on locations of PMs in JB. Thanks.
Re: Pasar Malam
There are night markets all over Johor but the largest and most popular is the once a week (Tuesday) pasar malam at Johor Jaya.
Pelangi pasar malam is a great night market - also on a Tuesday. It is located a couple of blocks behind Plaza Pelangi.
There is also one near the Holiday Plaza shopping centre which is on Mondays.
They are the only ones I know as haven't been there on other days of the week!
Travel Tips for Johor Bahru
Money in JB
Malaysian money is called the Ringgit. It is valued at about 2.22 Ringgit to the Singapore Dollar. After exiting customs, and walking through the pedestrian underpass towards central JB, you will find a well-marked money exchange in a small shop on the main road. As you might expect, it is surrounded by taxis and cons, like sharks circling an injured swimmer...
This is one of the only money exchanges I saw, but there were a few ATMs in the waterfront area and the central market area.
JB is famous in S'pore as being very inexpensive, so it's a popular destination for a day-trip for shopping.
I spent only a couple of hours in Johor Bahru, time enough to bring a good impression of local hospitality.
Of course, most of it was performed for tourists, in a commercial environment, but... being received with folk dancing is one of the best ways to touch me. And they did.

An Evening Walk
