If you're in Johor Bahru please do drop by at the Pasar Karat. It is essentially a big night market around some nice hip cafes and boutique eateries run by young Johoreans.

Okay, what about parking arrangement? You can park by the road side wherever there are spaces and as long as your parked car don't obstruct the traffic flow obviously. The traffic police are quite lenient around Pasar Karat area. I think.
