Visit to Bazar Johor Bahru
Yesterday night we visited Bazar Johor Bahru at 11pm. Wow…it’s very late already but since Ikhwan, my son wanted to “jalan-jalan”, I brought all of them to this new place. I have before that visited Bazar Johor Bahru last month, alone after attending a MCOBA get together night at Plaza Kotaraya, Johor Bahru.
Bazar Johor Bahru brief
Bazar Johor Bahru, for me is very unique and interesting. There are many items being displayed and sold here. There are many people selling either new or second hand items. There are also karaoke and band (selected nights) as well as food stalls. If you are tired of walking, you can ride the decorative beca with amazing “lip-lap” lights.
I think this is one way of the Johor Bahru municipal council making Johor Bahru more attractive at night. The concept is quite simple. Anybody who wants to sell their goods can come here, book their spot and pay RM5 per night to the municipal council. If you want to do sell any of your goods, you can come and survey for a spot for you to display your products.
What do they sell there?
Wow… Obviously many things. You need to come and see it for yourself. There are… t-shirts, sandals, hand bags, belts, live rabbit, live snakes, live gecko, toys, scarfs, 2nd hand phones, various antiques, laptops, old stamps, old coins, old refrigerators, various types of lighters…. oh…i cannot list everything here…Too much of unique products…
Among items that caught my interest are the coins. There are several RM0.50 coins. Those coins cost RM1.50!!! When I checked, it was because the 50 cent coins came from 1980, 1981 and 1982.
There are also Manchester United Coins with Peter Schemeical and Paul Scholes carved on the coins dated 1998. Those cost RM35 a piece.
There are also music box like this… guess how much does this cost?
This piece of antique which still can play the record is RM2,800!!!
Bazar Johor Bahru is opened each and every night (6pm to 12am). However the parking space is one of my concern. Not much parking space. As a result, cars are parked just anywhere on the side of the road. If you dwell in Johor Bahru or will come down to Johor Bahru for a visit, this is one place you need to visit at night apart from Danga Bay night.
