Driving Trip to Desaru with Shopping Stopovers
by Jean Seah
|Hi. I'll like to find out where to go for shopping as i'm driving from JB (checkpoint) to Lotus Beach Resort in Desaru. Will you be able to give me the driving directions too? TQ|
I know of 2 worthwhile places to shop en route from Johor Bahru to Desaru:
1) The Store @ Taman Sentosa
As you drive along Jalan Tebrau (highway), look out for Crystal Crown Hotel - which you should see on your left. About 500m past the hotel, turn right into Jalan Sutera. You enter a township call Taman Sentosa.
The Store is in a building called Lien Ho Complex. It is a supermarket-cum-department-store selling mainly bargain stuff. I got some pretty good T-shirts there last year.
2) Aeon Tebrau City Shopping Centre
This is a huge shopping complex further up the road along Jalan Tebrau. You can actually see the signage of its anchor tenant - Jaya Jusco - from the road. Get your passengers to do a lookout for you. It's on the left as you drive towards Kota Tinggi/Desaru.
This is a nice stopover for morning tea or lunch, en route to Desaru.
If you do a bit of Googling, you should be able to get more specific directions from the official sites of these shopping places.
Have a good trip.
