Raya prep is hectic and expensive. Heading to JB has been a staple in many people's preparation work. We've noted down some malls you can visit while you're at it!

1. Angsana Johor Bahru Mall

Crossing off your shopping list at Angsana Johor Bahru Mall is one of the best things to do in JB!

You can get some good quality Hari Raya clothing for a reasonable price here!

For R&R

We all need some R&R after working hard for months. These malls have a ton of pampering stores where you can indulge in a little bit of that self-care you've been missing.

KSL City Mall

KSL is a main staple for many Singaporeans who are vacationing in Johor Bahru. The number of hair salons and nail parlors are plenty with similar prices that are value-for-money. You can get your hair bleached or re-dyed for as low as half the cost back home. Besides the rest and relaxation, KSL Hotel is situated above the mall, where you can book a room to relax in after getting yourself pampered. Or if you're a guest at the hotel, opt for their spa and massage packages too. There's a nearby K-fry that can satiate your needs or if you would like to indulge yourself after the much needed self-care.

Another draw of the place is the IKEA that is found within the premises. Their prices are comparable to Singapore's, albeit a little cheaper sometimes. One of the best parts is being able to eat at the Ikea Cafe there! Grab some pastries or order some dishes to fill your stomachs up. Or, grab a curry puff from their Snack Store which (in my opinion) is one of the best!
