Last year, I visited Legoland Malaysia together with fellow bloggers and some local travel agents. The trip was sponsored by Cebu Pacific and Tourism Malaysia and I must say this is probably the best Malaysian trip Ive ever had.
Visiting Legoland Malaysia
It was a dream come true for a Lego fan like me. Although I was not sure about the extent of excitement it will offer, I almost jumped out of my seat when our tour bus entered the park area in Johor Bahru. There was a feeling like I was brought back to my childhood where all i do is play, play and play like there’s no tomorrow.

I had a once-in-a-lifetime experience here which i will definitely not forget. This destination I think has all it takes to truly impress all kind of visitors including kids, women, men and people of older age. Its really surprising to see that majority of foreign and local tourists roaming around the 76-acre park are adults.
My first time in Taj Mahal.. Haha!
I already came to know from the internet about the seven themed parks inside Legoland Malaysia and it includes ‘The Beginning’, ‘Lego Technic’, ‘Land of Adventure’, ‘Miniland’ , ‘Lego City’, Imagination’ and ‘Lego Kingdoms’. Although I’m not really planning to try any of the rides, I was very eager to checkout the 40 interactive rides and rollercoaster rides throughout the park. I found the park to be well organized and the theme park sections was quite easy to locate by just using the map.
We had a very nice time enjoying the cool breeze while walking around the park. We had no difficulty in finding basic amenities such as bathrooms for getting ourselves feel refreshed and there are also a host of restaurants and Snacksbar available throughout the park.

To start with, we made our first visit to the admirable Lego constructions of famous people and historical monuments and the mini cities that are constructed with thousands of Lego bricks. Those lego creations are fascinating. If you can imagine several Asian cities depicted in miniature – and everything built from lego blocks.
Putra Jaya Mosque
The most popular landmarks there included PETRONAS Twin Towers and Cambodia’s Angkor Wat Temple but being a Pinoy, I am very very happy to see lego Models of our very own Philippine Jeepney and a lego model of a community in Bolinao Pangasinan.
The experience in Miniland was truly amazing. Similar was the experience in Lego Kingdom where it was a visual treat to capture lot of pictures of the princess and her Knight made from Lego Bricks.
Similar to Melaka’s Menara Taming Sari and Sentosa Island’s Tiger Tower, you can board the observation tower to view the entire LEGOLAND and some areas in Johor Bahru. For professional photographers and photo loving family members, I found the observation tower in the ‘imagination’ area to be the best place for capturing some of the memorable images.
I also had a nice experience visiting the Ancient Egypt-Themed Landscape in the ‘Land of Adventure’. The Lost Kingdom Adventure Ride was fun-filled and entertaining. Overall the experience in Legoland Malaysia was truly memorable for all of us.
