As the night falls and we were stuffed to our maximum, we took a slow walk by the bay towards the shinning lights and sound of laughters. The mini night carnival in Danga Bay is one of the main reasons we stayed in that area of Johor Bahru.
Theme Park in Danga Bay
We had dinner in the Seafood Market Restaurant before heading to play. The night scene was extremely different from it’s morning. The carnival only starts from 7 to 12am. We were greeted by led lights on stars and moon hanging from the trees, mini Ferris wheel, trains on tracks and a carousel.
Perfect for Couples and Families
The carnival was filled with couples hugging, parents holding each side of their child’s arms and kids running around. What a heart-warming scene to see everyone free of stress and troubles.
It is a place for kids; I’m 100% sure. But we all have a little child inside us, isn’t it? We toured the area for a bit and found some old school-childhood games. In the end, we decided to go on a ride. After much debate, the Ferris wheel was the answer. It costs RM2-4 per person, depending on the ride.
Like I said, it’s a place for kids. We end up spending our time taking pictures of the carousel; experimenting with slow shutter, played with the ISO, and aperture.
In the end, we were also exhausted from a long day and decided to head back. Well, it’s not exactly a convenient place cause there was neither buses nor cabs going by. So we decided to hitch a ride. It was tough, since most people there are families and the car is filled. Fortunately, a lady (mother to be exact) asked us where we were going and gave us a life despite having only 2 seats available. We thanked their family profusely and got off after 2min. The hotel was that close to the night carnival.
Such kindness needs to spread to more places and people. I would love to give people a ride in Singapore, but I think I’ll have to drive more often.
