Travelling to Singapore vis JB with kids

by BeeSee

Hi,

We are planning to visit Universal studio in 3rd week of November from JB. There will be 2 adults & 2 kids (age 4) planning to visit for 3days/2nights. Is travelling on Saturday morning to Singapore and returning to JB on Monday morning/before noon will be advisable?

We will be visiting my mom in north part of Johor and sadly there's nobody could drive us into S'pore. We are looking at travelling by cab from JB to Spore vice versa. Can someone let me know where to get the cab/taxi from both places and how much they charge?

Also, will the taxi from Singapore will send us to JB bus stop? I'm thinking of getting a bus from JB bus stop back to Segamat on the same day(Monday). Is it feasible? Please advise.

Thanks a lot!

I usually just get a private driver at one of the markets in Johor (you can negotiate a price - I usually pay around 180 SIN dollars and keep the guy for the day), but this website shows all your options. There's a section specifically in getting to and from Singapore.

Travel Tips for Johor Bahru

Shopping and Dorians

by chrisbilal

Step out of the giant air conditioned mall called Singapore and experience some of the "down to earth-ness" of this friendly country.

Shopping is everywhere and you can get most anything pretty cheaply. Life isn't so hurried and it's just small jump Singapore.

You can rent a limo from Changyi for only about 80 Singaporean dollars which will take you right in.

Johor Tourist Information Center (JOTIC)

by A2002

There's a Johor Tourist Information Center, JOTIC in short, situated just across the road from the Abu Bakar Museum.

From there, one can get information of where to go and some brochures.

There's also some cultural performances mainly for the tourists. Be amazed at the unique musical instruments that they use.

Greetings.

by A2002

Malaysians show respect to older people. When making introductions, the elder person is named first. The Western handshake is accetable to all races between members of the same sex. Between members of the oppossite sex, however, let the women take the lead. If she does not extend her hand, a nod and smile will do. Generally, the Malaysian handshake is softer and gentler than the Western counterpart.

Traditional Malay style of greetings:
The traditional way of greetings is still widely practiced, especially when greeting the elderly Malays. This is done by lightly touching their palms with both hands and bring their hand to your chin (looks like kissing their hand, but it is actually not kissing, just bringing the hands to the chin). Then use one hand (your own) or both hands to touch your chest lightly. Generally, older Malaysian use only one hand because they are of higher status than younger people. Males shake hands (gently) when greetings each other and then bringing one hand to the chest.

You can also show respect to an elderly Indian by greeting them in the traditional way: put both palms together, raising them to your face, and bowing your head slightly. When departing, avoid hugging or kissing even between members of the same sex.

If a Malaysian gives you his or business card, receive it with both hands, and study it for a moment before placing it in your pocket. Business cards are also given with both hands.
