After a window shopping session at Johor Premium Outlet we continued our shopping journey by taking a bus from JB Sentral to Jusco Tebrau. There are two Jucso Department Stores in Johor Bahru, but the recommended one based on the Female Daily Forum on Johor Bahru is the Tebrau branch. Actually the mall's name was Tebrau City Shopping Center.
We took a bus heading to Jusco Tebrau, we knew it was the right bus as we saw the sign of "Jusco Tebrau" on the window of the bus. We asked a staff of JPO bus, and he showed us which bus to take at JB Sentral. After paying RM 10 for the four of us, we sat down inside the bus. We sat close to the driver because we had requested him to tell us where to stop, we had no idea at all.
We passed Saturday's traffic jam in Johor Bahru, and after 30 minutes the driver told us to alight, and we walked to Jusco. There was no sign of Jusco, instead the mall has a big AEON sign on it. And yes, we saw a Toys R Us sign at the mall. Yeay..
|Jusco has been changed to AEON|
AEON is a grocery store located on the ground floor with many chocolates to buy! So if you wish to pack some chocolates, you may opted to shop at Aeon. I was interested to see all the sushi which were sold in pieces. They were so tempting!
We had our lunch at Manhattan Fish Market, I ordered my fave Fish and Chip:)
|they should have added "Jakarta" on the list|

After our lunch, we explored a little bit of AEON Tebrau City Shopping Center. It has more interesting shops compared to City Square Mall. Not only because of the Toys R Us, but also Vinnci and the Aeon. It has also more interesting restaurants compared to City Square Mall.

After the shopping session, we walked through an overbridge to catch a bus going back to JB Sentral. We asked people which bus to take, and it seems almost everyone were heading to JB Sentral. We paid another RM 10 for the one way bus fare (4 person).

The bus condition was really different than JPO Bus: it was an old bus with an old ticket machine. The journey back to JB Sentral was much faster. Within 15 minutes we arrived at JB Sentral

If you wish to stay around this shopping mall, you may choose Hotel Tebrau City with a good review on tripadvisor.
