Eco Botanic Arrays of restaurants Johor Bahru by Elvie Lins


Come along as I and my besties will bring you a location in Johor Bahru full array of restaurant that serves fine dining cuisine from around the world as well as the Malaysian street burger.

The journey starts with a friend of mine who came from Singapore. She took a bus ride and I fetched her at Gelang Patah Bus station.

As we drove to Eco Botanic, a sunset appear and the other image is my besties.

We are heading to the Eco Botanic, a location and a real estate part of Iskandar Johor Bahru. From Gelang Patah bus terminal, we drove about 3.5 km to Eco Botanic bustling area full of restaurants one after the other. It was a long 3 or more blocks which to me looks like a very colonial designs shophouses.

There are plenty to choose from, Korean, Japanese, Turkish, Arabic cuisine, bakeries and cafes, and drinking bars.

There are hair salons for humans as well as pets, spa centers, and even pre-schools in these long stretches of shophouses.

To our surprise, there are 3 blocks of the white building. Southampton University is in this area. No wonder we saw a group of younger adults in and out of the condominium lobby.
