If you are thinking of going to Legoland while in Singapore (SG), then you have to thank heaven for small mercies as there are several transport options you can choose from.
Legoland is one of the most accessible theme parks in the world as it sits just near the Lion City. In fact, getting there is not as difficult as one can imagine. This is why millions of tourists come to Legoland as it is just 45 kilometers away from the Garden City (another name for SG). What’s even more amazing is the fact that the theme park features seven more interesting theme parks within. Other than that, the place is also filled with restaurants, souvenir shops, and mini-shops which can really entice kids and adults as well to make Legoland a part of the itinerary when visiting Singapore.
How to Get There
Thanks to technology and foresight, going to Legoland is as easy as ABC. You can choose a method which suits your individual or family needs, budget and other preferences. Here are the transport options:
If travelling long distance and spending more time on the road does not bother you or your family, this is one good way to travel as you do not need advance booking. You can present your group at public bus terminals going to Johor Bahru. Just follow the Jurong East and Boon Lay going to Tuas Checkpoint, then get off when the bus stops at CIQ Interlink.
You can travel by bus from 7:00AM to 11:45PM, Monday to Sunday. From this point, you board on to another bus. Legoland will be the first stop of that trip. There are 8 bus trips from CIQ Interlink that starts from 9:00 in the morning every hour and 30 minutes after. Bus SI1 and Bus JP02 only has four trips in one day which starts at 8:30 am and then every 3 hours thereafter.
The price of bus tickets vary from SGD20 to SGD56 per person.
If you want to travel faster than by bus, this is one of best options. You can hire an accredited taxi from Singapore and request to be dropped at Johor Bahru Sentral. Take another taxi from this point on to reach Legoland directly. With this method, you don’t have to travel at least two hours. You can even bring elderlies or those with comfort issues.
It is more expensive though and you have to book in advance. You may also optionally avail of a Legoland ticket reservation to facilitate convenient entry when you reach a customs office either in Malaysia or Singapore. Remember, only accredited taxis are allowed inside the Malaysia area and regular taxis are limited to the exit on the Singapore side. So to make it more convenient, you can arrange with your SG taxi to coordinate a Malaysian taxi which will meet you at the border.
When we say private, it is through a personal car or by renting a private vehicle service. The best thing about this option is that you will be picked up wherever you are in Singapore and you will be dropped directly at Legoland in Malaysia. Another amazing feature of this method is that you do not need to step out of the car once you reach custom checkpoints in both the Malaysian and Singaporean stations.
If you are renting a private car vehicle, it will cost around SGD 170 to SGD 320 depending on the type of vehicle you will book. This is of course the ideal option if you prefer a faster trip from SG to Legoland and you have the money to splurge. In addition, this is also great for groups as the greater number of people you travel with, the cheaper it becomes as you are renting the whole vehicle instead of paying on a per passenger basis.
You can book in advance from different travel agencies and let them take care of everything including arrange transportation services from Singapore to Legoland along with other perks like free bottled water (or even food), comfortable seating arrangements, child friendly seats, DVD players, TV monitor, or music player. Some package tours also include insurance coverage and providing entertainment requests whenever possible.
Whether you travel from Singapore to Legoland alone, with your family, or with a group, there is always one option that suits best for you.
