Car Park In Paradigm Mall Johor Bahru
There are 2 access paths to get to Paradigm Mall car park. First access path is through the circular path within the building, which you enter at the main entrance. Even if you are an experience driver, you will find this path challenging, as the path is narrow. During peak hours, this path can jam for some time, so do plan your shopping timing well.
Second path access to Paradigm Mall Johor Bahru car park is through a slope, which you enter by going to the back of the building. This slope will lead to all levels of car park, total of 7 levels. If you have to go all the way up to 7 levels, it can be a little intimidating due to the height. Also when you finish your shopping and need to exit, this slope can get jam up as it is used for all levels to exit.
