Magika Raya at B5 Johor Street Market in Johor Bahru

This weekend will be the last before Hari Raya hits next Wednesday – that also means one last chiong to the Ramadan bazaars. We wrote about Ramadan Fiesta 2024, which boasts more than 100 F&B stalls, but here’s one more to put on your list: Magika Raya at B5 Johor Street Market.

Located in Tampoi Town, B5 Johor Street Market is approximately 20 minutes by car from Woodlands Checkpoint, or 16 minutes by bus from JB Sentral.

Inspired by Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne, this 56,475 sqft space is a one-stop shop for shopping, dining and entertainment. The Magika Raya bazaar is just the latest of the food and retail markets that the space has hosted since they opened.

Pop into the big blue buildings, and you’ll find nostalgic street market vibes, alongside units that have been built into heritage shophouses, KTM train carriages, and even old buses.

In fact, the B5 in their name harks back to the area’s old name – Batu 5, or 5th Mile, which is what the older generation would know it as.

There are more filling options as well – think pizzas, nasi lemak, char kway teow, and even lamb chops and other grilled meats.

Lots of retail options for clothes & snacks

If you’re not a foodie, or are accompanied by friends and fam who are less gastronomically tempted, point them in the direction of the retail section.
