One of the most popular places in Johor Bahru to explore after dinner is Bazar JB, which was previously known as Pasar Karat. This colourful night bazaar is in the city center at the end of Jalan Trus and covers a large space through the main heritage zone and its surroundings streets. Vendors are seen selling all sorts of items ranging from clothes, costume jewellery, shoes, accessories and even collectibles where you can bargain at most stalls. You can also venture into local street food and Malaysian snacks sold by some of the vendors.

 

Bazar JB

The JB Bazaar opens daily from around 7.00pm till about 1.00am in the morning and the best time to see this night market in full action is around 10.00 pm and especially during the weekends. This makes exploring Johor Baharu city exciting as just after dinner, you can take a slow walk and browse through the numerous stalls. The bazaar is not covered so If it rains, you will need to bring an umbrella.

This fascinating market is still called Pasar Karat by the locals where it was once thriving with petty vendors selling all sorts of second hand goods. Looking like a flea market, the items were laid on mats on the ground and bargain hunters were seen hunting for good deals, but gone are the days of these petty vendors and today, at one of the corners of the Bazar JB, you may still see a couple of these petty vendors.
