Pit Stop - Johor Premium Outlet

By Rigval on 02 Jun 2012

Southern Johor is a nice place to be if you love motoring. With the rapid development of the Iskandar region comes a whole slew of projects from government offices, business centers, residential and commercial projects dot the whole landscape throughout Nusajaya (near Johor Bahru), Kulai, Senai Pasir Gudang and all the way to Pontian.

Now with these developments come roads. These roads are actually fun as while development is ongoing, these roads are quite empty most of the time and are actually quite nice if one wants to just enjoy the simple pleasures of motoring.

Of course most of you would need a reason to travel all the way to South Johor and if this is the case then might I suggest a pit stop or a detour the Johor Premium Outlet.

The Johor Premium Outlet (JPO) is based on those large factory outlet you get in the United States, Japan and Korea. This is a place where you get designer, high street and brand stores that give its visitors the chance to shop for such items at a discounted prices ranging from 25% to 70%. Of course this comes with a caveat as in my opinion one would need to know what is really worth its value and what isn't.

I happen to enjoy shopping here, as do a lot of Singaporeans as if one were to look at the car park there are quite a number of Singapore registered cars doing the same thing I was there for a whole lot of shopping. So what is a write up of a shopping center doing in a motoring blog then?

Quite simple actually. This is actually one destination to head to if you are traveling to Malaysia or to Johor specifically. The roads surrounding the JPO is actually quite fun are they are currently quite empty and a good place to wring out your car a little (not that I am condoning reckless and faster than the speed limit driving). The area is still quite empty with only oil palm estates surrounding JPO.

And after you've done so, this could be a great pit-stop as well as a place to get a new pair of driving shoes from the brand with the three stripes or the brand with the formstripes and a jumping cat (which are quite cheap in my opinion). You could also get higher priced driving mocs from those Italian designer labels that have their shops there too.

So how do you get there?
If you're from the Causeway / Woodlands:
Singapore → Sultan Iskandar Ciq JB → Jalan Yahya Aldatar → Lebuhraya Tebrau → Lebuhraya Utara Selatan → Exit 253 → Exit 304 → Exit 302A → Johor Premium Outlets

If you're from the Second Link:
Singapore → Tuas → Second Link Highway Malaysia Singapore → Exit 304 → Exit 302A → Johor Premium Outlets

If you're from Kuala Lumpur:
Kuala Lumpur → Lebuhraya Utara Selatan → Second Link Highway Malaysia Singapura → Exit 253 → Exit 304 → Exit 302A → Johor Premium Outlets
