Mesmerizing Malaysia

It is my birth month and I chose to celebrate it out of the country. Together with my travel buddy we conquered Malaysia for two days.

So here’s the plan, we’ll be visiting Legoland, Genting Highlands, and Batu Caves plus the famous Bukit Bintang walk. However, because I was so busy with work I wasn’t able to do an in-depth research about our itinerary especially going to Legoland Malaysia.

That is why our first day was such a waste, I didn’t know that Legoland was so far away from Kuala Lumpur. We traveled almost nine hours from KLCC to Johor Bahru and back. Well, lesson learned! Always always ask how many minutes or hours is the travel time which I failed to ask after buying a bus ticket going to Johor.

For those who would like to know how to get from Kuala Lumpur to Legoland:

  • Take the railway going to Bandar Tasik Selatan station and look for TBS or Terminal Bersepadu Selatan, alternatively you can go to Pudu Sentral terminal
  • Buy a bus ticket which cost 34.30 MYR
  • A 4-5 hours travel time before reaching Larkin Sentral
  • At Larkin Sentral you can see shuttle bus of Legoland (Bus # LM1) every thirty minutes between 9:00 am and midday. Return buses will run from Legoland to Larkin from 4:00 pm until 6:30pm from Sunday to Friday. On Saturdays, school holidays and public holidays they will run until 8:30pm. Each round trip will cost RM12

*My two cents: leave early and better if you book for a place to stay overnight because it’s kinda tiring, really.

Indeed, that’s the downside of DIY traveling. I will be posting our 1-day itinerary in Malaysia, which is supposedly a 2-day itinerary but because our first day was an epic fail we squeezed everything for a day and it was a success. Haha.
