There’s a very long weekend coming up this National Day — if you’re thinking of taking the opportunity to check out the new Mid Valley Southkey mall in Johor Bahru, here’s the guide to the sprawling complex (trust us, you’ll need it). 

For those who’re still unfamiliar with this new mall, here’s a refresher: the Mid Valley Southkey is JB’s largest integrated shopping mall which is modelled after the popular, swish Mid Valley Megamall in Kuala Lumpur.

Other than retail, the 2.5 mil sqft development will also include “international class hotels and high-end residences” that will be built over the next decade. To reflect the development’s atas aspirations, the mall’s tenants are also more luxurious than, say, the nearby R&F Mall, which opened earlier this year. 

We traipsed to Mid Valley Southkey on a weekday afternoon in June for some exploring. It’s located pretty near JB’s CIQ customs checkpoint; just a 10 minutes’ Grab ride away (we paid RM8, or S$2.60, for our fare without any surge charge). Good news: the majority of the mall’s tenants are already open for business, unlike our previous dismal experiences at Capital 21 mall and R&F Mall.
