Ikea and shopping go together like, er, brown sugar and bubble tea. Which is what Johor Bahru’s latest mall, Toppen Shopping Centre, is all about. The 1.25mil sq ft megamall opened on November 13, and is connected to Ikea Tebrau, JB’s biggest Ikea outlet.

It is owned and run by the Swedish furniture giant, who named the mall ‘Toppen’ after the Swedish word for ‘best’. Other than retail shops, the mall also boasts an e-sports gaming centre called The Pantheon, plus a rooftop space with a garden, kids’ water playground, skate park, and rock-climbing walls. If you’re planning to catch Ip Man 4, there’s a state-of-the-art cinema with speaker-embedded seats too.


But with so many hit-and-miss JB malls opening in recent years and crazy Causeway traffic, is Toppen worth your time, effort and sanity to get to? 8days.sg checks out the new shopping centre and tell you. Read all about our experience below.
