You guys should have heard there’s a new IKEA building in Johor Bahru, and it’s South East Asia’s largest! So I’ve done a little research on it and found that IKEA Tebrau takes up over 45,000sqm featuring 54 furniture showrooms, while Singapore’s largest IKEA Tampines Megastore only has a customer area of 18,000sqm!

And most importantly for Singaporeans, do note that the items sold over at IKEA Tebrau are cheaper than in Singapore, about 10% cheaper. For example, a POÄNG rocking-chair cost S$100 cheaper in Tebrau as compared to Singapore. And do look out for sections with Red wallpapers or banners, as usually, it’s a sale item.

How To Get There?

By Car – IKEA Tebrau is a 20-minutes drive from Woodlands Causeway. It’s located next to AEON Tebrau City shopping mall.
