I am not really into theme parks, it is always the least of my priorities in making a travel itinerary i only insert them if i have a spare time. From our amazing Maldives trip to fabulous Singapore, we then made a day trip to Johor Bahru, Malaysia to visit Legoland, among other things in our itinerary, which i am told that can be enjoyed by both children and adult alike.
Legoland Malaysia is Malaysia’s first international theme park that has opened in Puteri, Johor, Malaysia on September 15, 2012 with over 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions. It is the first Legoland theme park in Asia and sixth in the world upon its establishment. The official opening of Legoland Malaysia was made by Sultan Ibrahim Ismail, Sultan of Johor on September 22, 2012.
From Singapore, we rode a train to Woodlands then rode a bus to the Singapore-Malaysia border. If you are planning to have a day tour to Johor Bahru, i suggest you travel early because the line at the immigration is just crazy. In our part, we were glad that we took off as early as 7:00 am. Since we arrived early, we had our breakfast at the famous Malaysian OldTown White Coffee Restaurant. Ready mix or 3in1 coffee sachets in different variants can be bought at Zamboanga Barter Trade Center with no price difference but freshly brewed coffee from their restaurant is yummier than the instant coffee.
After a hearty breakfast, we then booked a car thru Uber going to Legoland.
The line was long but there were many tellers and they were very quick to serve the tickets to the customers.
Upon entering Legoland, we were greeted with their cafe but we were still full.
We rode the Project X ride and it was awesome especially for someone like me who doesn’t like extreme rides.
Everyday is fun day out with awesome adventures aplenty starting from The Beginning to the most amazing journey through LEGO® Technic, LEGO Kingdoms, Imagination, Land of Adventure, LEGO City and MINILAND. Heroes face brick-tastic challenges, rides, games and activities to emerge victorious at the end of each day.
Legoland Junior Chef. Decorating my own cupcake and devouring it after. Their cupcake was delish!
If you want to check out the whole Legoland view from the top, Legoland Tower is worth the queue.
Do you want to see the world? Come over to Legoland because they have Miniland which showcases famous landmarks which has been built out of 30 million lego bricks!
I am glad that i was able to visit Legoland Malaysia. Surprisingly i had so much fun there. We took off from Legoland to City Square Mall thru Uber Car.
Nando’s is also at City Square Mall which is where we planned to have our dinner. Nando’s is one of our favorite restaurants which we always take time to dine whenever we go to a country with Nando’s.
For make up lovers like me, Sephora is also in Johor Bahru and take note that it is cheaper to buy in Malaysia than in Singapore because of the conversion rate. Sephora in Johor Bahru is at Komtar which is just 5 minutes away from City Square by foot.
We went back to City Square since it is the mall connected to Johor Bahru Immigration.
Day tour in Johor Bahru was very productive and enjoyable. It was everything i wished for and so much more. It exceeded my expectations. It is such a great experience to be be able to immerse into a different culture all in a day. That is the exciting part of traveling, you go home with added memories and while writing this blog, beautiful memories at Johor Bahru came back and i can’t help but smile.
