Malaysia, Travel Tales

The land of legos

January 21

The advantages of staying at Singapore are that most of the south east Asian countries are really close by. I had already made a list of countries that I would wish to visit during my one year stay in Singapore, and Malaysia, being the closest to Singapore, featured on top of that list.

A colleague at work told me about Legoland at Johor, Malaysia and I was immediately fascinated by the idea of a land full of legos with a theme park, a water park and a hotel. I made up my mind to visit it the very same weekend I was told about it. I booked my tickets on the Legoland website. I had planned to visit it and return the very same day, so I bought tickets to only the theme park. I was to go with a colleague of mine but unfortunately, she fell sick on the day of the trip. Nevertheless, I decided to visit it alone and also experience my first travel alone to another country.

With my visa, passport and some essentials I took a bus from below the Singapore flyer. I was already feeling a bit sleepy because I had taken an early morning bus so most of the time in the bus passed away sleeping. After a 3 hour journey, including immigration formalities, I reached Legoland. Can you imagine a land full of legos? Statues made of legos, mini cars made of legos, replicas of countries made of legos… the list could just go on. Made me wonder, who had the time and patience to put together so many legos.

With attractions for all age groups, Legoland has 7 themed attractions. It takes about 3-4 hours to complete all the rides, including lunch. For lunch there are a lot of options between cuisines, however for vegetarians, it would be a challenge as you may not have the choices you hoped for.

Are you visiting Legoland ? Here are some tips.

Cost – The ticket price is fairly reasonable at RM 180, which is nearly INR 900. I would suggest you to books tickets online to avail offers and discounts. Annual passes are also available.

Timings – The park is open from 10 am to 6 pm, but is closed on public holidays. Make sure you look at calendar on the Legoland website to confirm whether the park is open.

Attractions – I loved the Miniland, where Malaysian, Singaporean and Asian landmarks recreated by legos. I also loved the rides at Lego Kingdoms and Lego Technic.

If you have been to Universal studios at Singapore, you can give this place a miss because the rides are not scary at all. However, if you are a great lego fan or if you have nothing to do on a Saturday, then you will surely enjoy Legoland.

      Hi Sreedhar, I actually visited Legoland on a day when it was very hazy so I’ve tried my best to capture my journey. But yes, Legoland is a very interesting place.
