Din Tae Fung is awesome! One opened in Bangkok a couple of years ago. It is awesome. The NY times has rated it as one of the top ten restaurants in the entire world, no joke! We though Universal Singapore was a great park...

Re: Malaysia and Singapore Parks! Legoland!!!

Finally, after weeks of actually sort of doing my normal daily job, I'm shoving it aside to post this overdue visit to Legoland Malaysia! Dan C., who we met on the TPR China trip, was instrumental in helping us plan some logistics. Thanks, Dan!

Crazily, we've been to Mexico and England since this trip, but I hate that I never finished the report. So here goes, our trip to Legoland Malaysia! Enjoy.

First we took a cab to the Singapore Flyer. What's that?

It's one of those ginormous Ferris Wheels! We'll hit it in the next report.

We had ordered our tickets online in advance, and it was pretty easy to find the bus.

It's a trip and a half getting from Singapore to Johor Bahru over the Malaysia border.

They don't want you skipping over the border to buy cheap Malaysian gas, apparently. I guess Singapore wants their gas taxes?

But the biggest pain is that you have to get off the bus twice...first to go through immigration as you depart from Singapore, then to go through immigration as you enter Malaysia. And then you have to repeat the process on the return trip!

Thanks for visiting Legoland Malaysia with us! It's hard to do the park justice. It's big and spread out. Anyway, more to come!!! Sentosa! And the sketchiest park in Malaysia!

Thanks for sharing! I thought crossing the Canada/US border was annoying enough. Both Universal and Legoland look really good.

Nice Photo TR Martin. All these parks in Malaysia and Singapore look really cool. I'm definitely hoping to make it out to this part of the world some day.
Just because yours is smaller doesn't make you less of a man. Unless we're talking about your brain.

Legoland always does a first-class job. The Angkor Wat model looks great.

Great report! I am thinking about doing the same thing (Same bus and all) when I visit Singapore. How much time do you guys spend at the park?

Good question. We spent 3-4 hours there, and we also spent some time in a small *mall that adjoins Legoland. But we then took a taxi to Danga World (sketchiest side trip ever!) to grab that credit. That took about 90 minutes because they weren't open when we got there. But we did get back and even managed to get an earlier bus back to Singapore than we'd previously arranged, which was good because I don't think Legoland allows re-entry, if I recall correctly. You should check this.
