First time to Muar! Need some recommendation.

Postby ahsiong » Wed Jun 24, 2009 11:25 am

I am thinking of making a day trip to Muar to makan and look look see see.
This will be my first time there. will be going in a group of 4 in a car.

I have read in another forum that there are some chinese stalls at jalan sungai abong selling durians.
is the durian at jalan sungai abong good? How much they selling at? any other cheap and good places to eat durians in Muar.

any recommendation for good makan (heard that assam fish and yong sheng cake shop is famous there) and shopping (perhaps something like pasar malam will be good)?

Thanks for your advice.
