FROM KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

Cebu Pacific Air flies up to twice daily from Manila to Kuala Lumpur, and they will be starting a Cebu to Kuala Lumpur service on December 8, 2012. Book low fares at CebuPacificAir.com.

From the Airport

If arriving in Kuala Lumpur on the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT), take a bus (8-10 MYR) or the KL Transit train that includes a shuttle bus to Salak Tinggi Station (12.50 MYR). Both options will terminate at KL Sentral. The bus takes up to an hour and a half, while the KL Transit option takes only a little over an hour total, including waiting time at the train station.

On the other hand, if arriving through Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), take a bus (8-10 MYR) or the KL Ekspres fast train to KL Sentral (35 MYR). The former takes up to hour and a half, depending on the traffic, while the latter takes only 30 minutes to the city.

KL Sentral, a transport hub, provides links to the LRT, monorail, city buses, commuter trains, and intercity trains. Coupon and metered taxis are also easily available.

By Bus

Take a bus to Johor Bahru’s Larkin Bus Terminal from Kuala Lumpur’s Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS). Used for buses headed to and from Southern Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore, TBS is accessible via the Bandar Tasik Selatan Station of the Rapid KL LRT, the KTM Komuter train, and the KL Transit airport fast train.

Note that those coming from LCCT and KLIA may opt to take the KL Transit airport fast train and alight directly at the Bandar Tasik Selatan Station as a cheaper and time-saving option.

Buses from TBS to Larkin Bus Terminal depart often and take three and a half to under five hours per way. Fare costs about 30-40 MYR, depending on bus company and bus type.

From Larkin Bus Terminal in Johor Bahru, take KTB’s direct shuttle bus (6 MYR) to LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort, which runs every 30 minutes. Causeway Link’s bus number LG1 (2.80 MYR), with 10 trips on weekdays and 15 trips on weekends, also makes a stop at Larkin Bus Terminal. Based on experience, it only takes 20-30 minutes from Larkin Bus Terminal to LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort. Refer to this link for the schedule of both buses.

By Train

For a more adventurous and scenic option, KTM Intercity has trains linking KL Sentral to JB Sentral. Serving both ways are two trains in the afternoon and one overnight train with sleeping options. Train trips take about six hours per way and cost a minimum of 33 MYR.

Note that the trains depart and arrive at KL Sentral and JB Sentral and not their respective bus terminals. Getting to their respective bus terminals can be easily done by public transport.

From JB Sentral, take Causeway Link’s bus number LG1 to LEGOLAND Malaysia. LG1 buses do 10 trips on weekdays and 15 trips on weekends. Refer to this link for the schedule.

FROM SINGAPORE

Cebu Pacific Air flies to Singapore up to 28 times weekly from Manila, five times weekly from Cebu and Clark, and three times weekly from Iloilo. Lowest year-round ALL-IN Lite Fare to Singapore starts at 2,538 PHP per way. Book low fares at CebuPacificAir.com.

From the Airport

Make your way to Changi Airport’s Terminal 2 for the Changi Airport MRT Station (CG2). Those arriving from Terminals 1 and 3 will have to take the Skytrain to the said terminal.

From downtown, there are two ways to get to LEGOLAND Malaysia: by direct coach or by public bus. As the park is in Malaysia, immigration clearance is required at two checkpoints—one in Singapore and the other in Malaysia. Filipinos enjoy visa-free entry into both countries.

Those who prefer to head directly to LEGOLAND Malaysia from Changi Airport may take the direct Transtar Cross Border Service (TS1) coach from all four terminals at their respective coach stands. These coaches will make a stop at the Sultan Iskandar CIQ Complex, where there is a link to JB Sentral by walkways. Download the timetable here.

From JB Sentral, take Causeway Link’s bus number LG1 to LEGOLAND Malaysia. LG1 buses do 10 trips on weekdays and 15 trips on weekends. Refer to this link for the schedule.

By Direct Coach

From any MRT station including the Changi Airport MRT Station (CG2), take the trains to Promenade MRT Station (CC4). Look for Exit A of the said station then walk for less than five minutes towards the base and the ticketing offices of the Singapore Flyer.

WTS Tours, which has an office at the Singapore Flyer, runs the direct coach to LEGOLAND Malaysia for 20 SGD, which includes a 5 MYR meal voucher. Refer to this link for the schedule.

By Public Bus

From any MRT station including the Changi Airport MRT Station (CG2), take the trains to Kranji MRT Station (NS7). Wait outside the station for SBS bus number 160 or 170 that will head for Johor Bahru, Malaysia. After immigrations clearance at the Sultan Iskandar CIQ Complex, do not ride the bus anymore but instead walk towards JB Sentral, which is connected to the border control facility by walkways.

From JB Sentral, take Causeway Link’s bus number LG1 to LEGOLAND Malaysia. LG1 buses do 10 trips on weekdays and 15 trips on weekends. Refer to this link for the schedule.

There are several ways to get to JB Sentral from Singapore, for there are at least three companies that have cross-border public buses. Just make sure that the bus is headed for the Woodlands CIQ in Singapore, as its counterpart in Johor Bahru is connected to JB Sentral.

Alternatively, there is also a public bus from Jurong East. Take the trains to Jurong East MRT Station (NS1/EW24) from any MRT station including the Changi Airport MRT Station (CG2) then look for the bus interchange. Causeway Link’s JPO2 bus will go directly to the CIQ 2nd link then LEGOLAND Malaysia, and it will head for the JPO Premium Outlets thereafter. Note however that this service runs for only six times a day, and it is not really recommended because of the low bus frequency. Check this link for the schedule.
