"Cowboy Town" Johor Bahru Warnings Or Dangers Tip by studiopaparazzi

Johor Bahru Warnings and Dangers: 32 reviews and 9 photos

Local people of Johor calls the city also Cowboy Town. Be smart and stay out of Johor. Frequently we hear in Singapore that Singaporean people has been attacked with weapons during daylight time at petrol stations. Malls and banks are constantly protected by heavy armed security guards.

If you wanna fill up your gastank in Johor, petrol is half price then in Singapore, close your door of your car, ask the personal to fill up and open only the window to pay your bill. If somebody ask you something and is not from the petrol station, say always NO NO NO NO NO! Even when they ask or you can help with something important. One boy of Singapore did & they hit with a weapon on his head... now he needs surgery in the hospital to recover his skull...

If you like to visit the Wild West, go then to Johor... if not, there are many more nice places in Malaysia...

Be SMART... STAY OUT of Johor...
