Forest City is also hoping to make cross-border commutes easier for folks travelling to Singapore from JB.

With free parking at the Forest City transportation hub, they can leave their vehicles there and hop on the shuttle bus instead.

That way, they won’t have to find a bus in the busy city area or navigate the Causeway jam themselves.

They can even stop by the 24-hour KK Mart convenience store to grab some snacks or have a meal at the mamak shop there. Public toilets are also easily accessible for emergency bowel breaks before your trip.

Alternative places to visit in JB

Although Forest City has had its share of controversy, it’s still an exciting development that not many have probably had the chance to explore. And with work reportedly resuming since the Covid-19 pandemic stoppage, there may be lots more to see and do there now.

Visitors who want to take advantage of the exchange rate can shop to their hearts’ content at Commercial Street, which has plenty of restaurants and duty-free stores.

Meanwhile, families seeking some excitement can splash around at Forest City Water Park, which only costs RM20 (S$5.70) to enter.
