Johor Bahru City Taxi

Taking a taxi (called a taxi for Chinese in Singapore and Malaysia) is one of the very cheap options for traveling in Johor Bahru, although drivers often refuse to use the meter, you must insist that they use it. The city of Johor Bahru has stipulated that the meter must be used since 2010. If your driver insists on refusing to use it, in order to avoid disputes over the price of the car at that time, it is better to change a car as soon as possible. The starting fare for a taxi in Johor Bahru is RM3 for two kilometers; then 10 sen (in Malaysian currency) per 115 meters.

Local Currency & Exchange

The currency of Malaysia is Ringgit RM, the exchange rate is about 1 US Dollar = 4.3 Malaysia Ringgit. It is not recommended to exchange a large amount of ringgit at the airport. Tourists only need to exchange a small amount of change at the airport, enough to pay the travel expenses. Airports, shopping malls and hotels have foreign currency exchange centers (generally only accept banknotes)and every mall has a Money Changer, but the rate of Money Changer in the city center is slightly lower. Most hotels impose an additional fee when they accept currency exchange. Traveler’s checks must be exchanged at the bank.

When traveling to the outskirts, be sure to bring enough cash and change. It is not cost-effective to exchange ringgit at the airport. There are many more cost-effective exchange points in the city.

If you are starting from Kuala Lumpur to other cities, it is best to exchange enough money in Kuala Lumpur before setting off, because the exchange rate of other cities is lower than that of Kuala Lumpur, and old money and damaged money are not charged.

Credit Cards and UnionPay

UnionPay cards can be used in 6 banks under the local network MEPS – Hong Leong Bank, Maybank, Public Bank, RHB Bank, CIMB, People’s Bank (PBC).

You need to check whether there is a UnionPay logo at the door or at the cashier, or ask the clerk. But its not everywhere you can swipe UnionPay cards, if it is UnionPay Visa or Mastercard, you can swipe it everywhere, and you can use the Visa or Mastercard channel. 

In other cities in Malaysia, there are far fewer places where UnionPay cards can be swiped than in Kuala Lumpur. You need to ask the clerk or pay attention to whether there is a UnionPay logo in the window or at the cashier. If it is UnionPay Visa or Mastercard, you can swipe it anywhere, and you can use the Visa or Mastercard channel.

The use of credit cards is relatively common, and many stores can swipe cards, and most of them do not have a minimum credit card consumption. Except for some small shops, it is best to prepare a little cash.

Tipping

Tipping is not mandatory in Malaysia. In hotels and restaurants, tipping is not necessary because a 10% service charge has been added to the bill. If the bill states that there will be an additional service charge (Service Charge), you can tip about 10%. Passengers may tip hotel staff and luggage porters as appropriate. There is no need to tip hotel doormen and taxi drivers.


Precautions For Entry and Exit

  1. At the time of customs clearance, the immigration at the airport will check whether the amount of cash carried by the passenger is sufficient to cover the expenses during their stay in Malaysia. In this regard, the Malaysian side has no specific limit on the amount, but it is understood that the basic reference standard is at least 1,500 ringgits (about 500 US dollars). This is the “standard” set internally by the Malaysian side in combination with its living consumption level. Special reminder to visitors to Malaysia whose sponsors are Malaysian citizens or enterprises, in order to take precautionary measures, they still need to carry a sufficient amount of cash for future reference.

Curious about what kind of travel is right for you? Read on and we’ll explain the different options in more detail.

Get to and from Senai Airport – Transportation Explained

1. Public Bus System

Public transportation is common in many parts of the world include Asia also is no exception. While widely available you will not find a direct bus traveling from Senai Airport to Singapore or in reverse. This means that on top of having to pay attention to a schedule you will have to transfer at least once and possibly more often between buses. Each bus will have its own schedule. Sometimes, the buses run more early or late depending on conditions that day. If you miss the bus, you’ll be stuck waiting for the next bus. Along with that hassle, you will need to transfer your baggage between buses as well. Plan ahead for this though because not all buses will have room to store luggage and some may not allow you to carry large items on board with you. While it may work for locals in the area, the bus isn’t an ideal option for those on vacation or traveling for business.

Refer to this quick image guide for the JB local bus transport map, that will connect you from anywhere in Johor Bahru to Senai airport.

If you are setting off from the Northern or Western part of Singapore

  1. Take a MRT or bus service from anywhere within Singapore to Kranji MRT station.
  2. Wait for Causeway Link bus CW1 to head towards Singapore immigration checkpoint.
  3. Board the same bus service (i.e CW1) after you have cleared Singapore immigration, and head towards Malaysia immigration – CIQ First Link.
  4. After you had cleared Malaysia immigration, take a brief 15 minutes walk towards JB Sentral direction and take the escalator down Jalan Jim Quee exit. You will spot the bus terminal towards your left, and the taxi station towards your right.
  5. At the bus terminal, wait for the Causeway Link bus service AA1 to take you to Senai airport.
  6. AA1 bus schedule is provided below for your convenience

If you are setting off from the Southern, Eastern or Central part of Singapore

2. Cost Effective Transport with The Shuttle Service

We’ve gone over the availability of buses and why they may not work that well. The Causeway bus offers an airport shuttle bus from and to between Johor Sentral and Senai International Airport. After this you can move onto the Causeway Link and take the Transtar Cross Border Service, SBS Transit Bus or Singapore Bus service to Singapore. The Shuttle Service offers a guide while traveling. The downside to traveling in this manner is you will be forced to leave the bus at least a few times so papers can be checked by immigration officers at the border. While this is a cost effective option, it is heavy in the consumption of time. If you decide to use this route of transportation expect it to take quite a while and leave room for delays on either end of your trip.

3. Comfort, Security and Fast Travel with Private Taxi Service

The best option for travellers and tourists coming from Singapore to Malaysia is private taxi service. While admittedly not the cheapest option available it will save you not only time but also vast amounts of unnecessary stress and confusion. With a private taxi service you won’t have to worry about a long wait at the border for immigration, transferring luggage repeatedly, or worry about getting lost. Enjoy your travel in a deluxe 7-seater private taxi and relax before beginning your adventure. If leaving Malaysia, leave in peace and style.

Things to do in Singapore

Districts

Singapore is a small island country with a land area of over 719 kilometre square and a population size of over 5.5 million people.
Unlike many other densely populated countries, Singapore is an enchanting city with more than 50% of its area covered by greenery and over 50 major parks and 4 nature reserves.

The centre of the city is located in the south — consisting of the famous Orchard Road shopping area, the Riverside, the Marina Bay area and also the skyscraper-filled central business district Shenton Way.
Riverside (Civic District) — Singapore’s colonial core, are lined with museums, statues, theatres, and also fancy, swanky restaurants, bars and clubs.
Orchard Road — Endless views of shopping malls on both sides of the road.
Marina Bay — The latest part of Singapore, where it houses Marina Bay Sands Resort, Gardens By The Bay and Marina Barrage. The newly opened Gardens by the Bay situated next to Marina Bay Sands Resort is a large garden which houses two huge cooled conservatories – the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest as well as a cluster of gigantic Super Trees.
Bugis and Kampong Glam — Bugis and Kampong Glam are Singapore’s old Malay district, now largely taken over by shopping malls.
Chinatown — The area occupied by Chinese immigrants in the past, is now a Chinese heritage area popular with tourists for the endless choices of local delicacies.
Little India — A piece of India to the north of the city core.
Balestier, Newton, Novena and Toa Payoh — Budget accommodations and Burmese temples within striking distance of the centre.
North — The northern part of the island, where the Singapore Zoo, River Safari and Night Safari is located. It’s biggest draw is probably Woodlands – where many Singaporeans embark on a quick ride to the neighbouring country Malaysia (Johor Bahru) for a short weekend getaway. Book online now to reserve a private taxi or WhatsApp +65-9769 2531 for any inquiry.

For other periods of the year, its weather is usually sunny with no distinct 4 seasons. Rain falls frequently throughout the year but most rainfall occurs during the north east monsoon (November to January), occasionally featuring lengthy spells of continuous rain. It’s advisable to carry an umbrella at all times, both as a shade from the sun or cover from the rain.
Temperature averages around 22.5°C – 29.5°C in December and January, with an occasional low of 21°C.
For the remainder of the year, expect temperature to be around 24°C – 32°C, usually hovering around the 28°C.

In addition to the locals, almost all airlines in Asia offers flights to Singapore, with discount carrier AirAsia and Malaysian regional operator Firefly operating dense networks from Singapore.

Changi Airport

The multi award winning Changi Airport is big, pleasant and well organized, with immigration and baggage distribution remarkably fast. The airport is split into three main terminals (T1, T2 and T3).
There are plenty of options to kill time in Changi Airport, as each terminal has a unique design and the airside areas of T1, T2, and T3 are attractions in themselves. T2, arguably the most interesting, has an indoor garden, a music listening area with couches and mood lighting, a computer gaming room, a small movie theatre, paid massage services, and of course plenty of duty-free shops. T3, the newest, has a butterfly garden and plenty of natural light, but fewer entertainment options. T1 has a swimming pool and jacuzzi, both open until 23:00. You can travel between the terminals without passing through immigration and, if you have no checked-in luggage to collect, you can clear passport control and customs at any terminal.
In all terminals, Wifi and Internet access is provided free of charge. There are some Xbox systems set up to keep gamers entertained, and there’s live lounge music at times. There are also SingTel and Starhub payphones that offer unlimited free local calls. ATMs abound and money changers offer reasonable rates as well, although you pay a small premium compared to the city. Food options are varied and generally reasonably priced, with some choice picks including the Peranakan-themed Soup Restaurant (T2 landside), which serves much more than just soup, and Sakae Sushi (T2 airside). If you’re up for a little adventure, seek out the staff canteen at level 3M of the car park next to T2, it’s open to the publica and serves local food. It is relatively cheap compared to other food options in the airport but not exactly cheap compared to elsewhere in Singapore. There are also staff canteens in Terminals 1 and 3.
Taxi – Book online now to reserve a private taxi or WhatsApp +65-9769 2531 for any inquiry.
Mass Rapid Transit – MRT trains run from a station between T2 and T3, but you’ll need to change trains at Tanah Merah to a city-bound train: just exit through the left hand side door and cross the platform. Trains from Tanah Merah to the city takes on average 30 minutes and tend to be very crowded during peak hours, and it is unlikely to have seats.
Bus – Bus terminals can be found in the basements of T1, T2 and T3.

By road

The Causeway, with Johor Bahru on the other side
Singapore is linked by two bridges to Peninsular Malaysia
The Causeway is a very popular and terminally congested entry point connecting Woodlands in the north of Singapore directly into the heart of Johor Bahru. While congestion isn’t as bad as it once was, the Causeway is still jam-packed on Friday evenings (towards Malaysia) and Sunday evenings (towards Singapore). The Causeway can be crossed by bus, train, taxi or car, but it is no longer feasible to cross on foot after Malaysia shifted their customs and immigration complex 2km inland.
A second crossing between Malaysia and Singapore, known as the Tuas Second Link, has been built between Tuas in western Singapore and Tanjung Kupang in the western part of Johor state. Much faster and less congested than the Causeway, it is used by most of the bus and transport services to Port DicksonMelaka, Kuala Lumpur or other cities to the north of Johor Bahru.

By bus

Direct to/from Malaysian destinations. There are buses to/from Kuala Lumpur and many other destinations in Malaysia through the Woodlands Checkpoint and the Second Link at Tuas. Unfortunately, there is no central bus terminal and different companies leave from all over the city. More expensive buses leave on time, use the Second Link, and don’t stop along the way; while the cheapest buses leave late if at all, use the perpetually jammed Causeway and make more stops. Book early for popular departure times like Friday and Sunday evening, Chinese New Year, etc, and factor in some extra time for congestion at the border.

An alternative to taking a direct “international bus” is to make the short trip to Johor Bahru to catch domestic Malaysian long-distance express buses to various Malaysian destinations from the Larkin Bus Terminal. Besides having more options, fares may also be lower because you will be paying in Malaysia Ringgit rather than Singapore Dollars. The downside is the time-consuming hassle of first getting to Johor Bahru, and then getting to Larkin terminal on the outskirts of town.

All buses make two stops at Singapore and Malaysia immigration. At both immigration points, you must disembark with all your luggage and pass through passport control and customs, then board the next bus by showing your ticket. Include an additional one hour for the whole trip from end to end, or more during rush hour (weekdays from 5pm onwards).

By phone

The international telephone country code for Singapore is 65. There are three main telecommunication providers in Singapore: SingTel, StarHub and M1.

Mobile phones are carried by almost everyone in Singapore, including many young children, and coverage is generally excellent throughout the country. All 3 service providers have both GSM 900/1800 and 3G (W-CDMA) networks, and international roaming onto them may be possible. Prepaid SIM cards are sold in 7-Eleven convenience stores, phone shops and currency exchange counters. You will need to show an international passport or Singapore ID to sign up.
Most prepaid cards expire within 6 month unless you top-up (which can be done outside Singapore). The carriers also offer special top up cards that will give a higher number of minutes for the price at the downside of expiring more quickly.
Calling cards are also available for specific international destinations and are usually cheaper. Hello Card from Singtel offers a very cheap rate to 8 countries (Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines, Sri Lanka and Thailand).

Get out

Singapore makes a good base for exploring South-East Asia, with nearly all of the region’s countries and their main tourist destinations — Bangkok, Phuket, Angkor Wat, Ho Chi Minh City and Bali, just to name a few — under 2 hr away by plane. The vast choice of budget carriers in recent times means that Singapore is an excellent place for catching cheap flights to China and India, as well as around Southeast Asia. In addition, Singapore has direct flights to many of the smaller cities in Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.

For short weekend trips from Singapore, the most popular choice would be to the neighbouring country of MalaysiaJohor Bahru just across the causeway for good eats and cheap shopping. Travel time is expected to be around 1-2 hours depending on the mode of transport.
If you have 3-5 days to spare, plan a visit to the colonial town of Melaka, beach resort Port Dickson or Malaysia’s vibrant capital Kuala Lumpur.

The park is open from 10:00am to 10:00pm daily with 3 sessions (10am to 1pm, 2pm to 5pm and 6pm to 10pm). There is a parent’s lounge at the second floor for those parents who do not wish to enter the park. There is a ‘wear socks’ policy in the park so you have to leave your shoes at the shoe rack located at the entrance of the park. If you do not have a sock, buy a pair for RM3. In all, the Angry Bird themed activity park is a nice place to go to for family activity.
