Legoland Malaysia is Malaysia's first international theme park that has opened in Iskandar Puteri, Johor, Malaysia on 15 September 2012 with over 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions. It is the first Legoland theme park in Asia. Opened recently nearby is the Lego themed waterpark which is also well worth a visit!
Kuala Lumpur is the capital city of Malaysia, boasting gleaming skyscrapers, colonial architecture, charming locals, and a myriad of natural attractions. Divided into numerous districts, its main hub is called the Golden Triangle which comprises Bukit Bintang, KLCC and Chinatown. KL is widely recognised for numerous landmarks, including Petronas Twin Towers (the world’s tallest twin skyscrapers), Petaling Street flea market, and Batu Caves, which is over 400 million years old. With frequent sales events throughout the year, expansive shopping malls like Pavilion KL and Suria KLCC are also among the biggest tourist attractions in the city, hosting a wide range of upmarket labels from all over the world. Plus, if you need more reason to love Kuala Lumpur, there is the abundance of gastronomic delights – with thousands of hawker stalls, cafes, and restaurants serving every imaginable type of delicacies.
The Wills family first came to Johor, Malaysia in 1928 and here
we still are 90 years and four
generations later. There have been many changes in those
90 years and I would have to say one
of the most horrid is the length of time take to cross the
Straights into Singapore, not only due to traffic but also due
to endless queuing courtesy immigration, customs & security!
Well we, the Wills’, have the whole thing figured out. You become very pretentious and use a chauffeur driven car and make the journey part of the fun. After all, if you are cosy & comfortable, with good company, an interesting book or great film what does it matter whether you are sitting in a moving vehicle or in your own lounge?
Plus it also means that you never have to think about parking, just drop off at the door and call your driver 5 mins before wanting to be picked up in the same place, or enjoying a drink with a meal or even staying out much later than anticipated due to bumping into friends and off to a club.
Why not treat yourselves to some of our favourite days out?
The Science Centre (don’t forget to check what’s showing in the Omni Theatre)
Skating at The Rink, JCube
Wet Wet Wild run by NTUC the most affordable water park around and one of the best we’ve been to. You need the whole day and there are great food outlets!
Traditional afternoon tea is a great treat. Over the years we’ve tried so many of them but we always go back to L’espresso at the Goodwood Park. For real piggies (it’s a buffet, not a tiered plate) you can’t beat it or it’s lovely atmosphere (even if they did try and ruin the building with their renovations).
Having stuffed yourselves to capacity you need a good walk and there’s nothing that beats the Night Safari for that. Get there in good time for the show which starts at 7.30pm
Singapore Zoo, Mandai Lake
Jungle Breakfast with the Wildlife, followed by a lovely day at the zoo. The breakfast is excellent but the other food outlets at the zoo are very disappointing.
Fort Canning Park & Empress Place
Whether spending an hour or a day, historical Fort Canning Park has so much to offer, too much to tell you so just click on the link.
Head to Empress Place and continue the historical theme enjoying the buildings, the Cavenagh Bridge and the life size bronze statues along the river depicting Singapore history. Head to Bar Opiume, making sure you are there by about 6pm in order to enjoy a drink as the sun sets. The colours reflected in the water and the buildings as the sun goes down, the lights coming on and the contrast between old and new is superb. I’ve never had a guest be disappointed in being there.
