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?
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?
