| Syazwani Hj Rosli in Johor Bahru |
Experiencing pleasurable shopping sessions and exciting amusement parks kept the holidaymakers from Brunei Darussalam delighted at their next stop. These holidaymakers are a part of a special tour with DJ Daffy, and were in Johor Bahru after their amazing historical adventure in Malacca.
Going to Johor Bahru was a three-hour journey – completely relaxing through the long-stretch of highway after their adventurous exploration of Malacca.
Half-way to Johor Bahru, the bus made a stop at the much-talked-about Johor Premium Outlet (JPO). It is a shopping oasis popular for discounted international high-end products – Burberry, Salvatore Ferragamo, Ralph Lauren and Michael Kors. After two hours of shopping spree at JPO, the group headed to Hotel Hallmark to spend a night.
The next morning, right after their morning breakfast, the holidaymakers were taken for a quick visit to Sultan Abu Bakar Mosque, a beautiful blue-roofed mosque situated on a hill overlooking the Straits of Johor. The group then headed for a fun and exciting time at Puteri Harbour Family Theme Park and Legoland Malaysia. They were also taken for a quick tour around Johor city.
It was around 10am when the group had arrived at the Puteri Harbour Family Theme Park. The park is a four floor indoor theme park comprising Sanrio Hello Kitty Town and Little Big Clubs. The park’s Lat’s Place offers a unique experience to its diners – always a must visit by food lovers.
The park’s activities brought huge smiles on the faces of the little ones! Most of the families had a lovely time taking their toddlers and children to participate in fun activities, multiple rides and interactive edutainment at the theme park. The grownups also indulged in childlike fun as they took photos with Hello Kitty and other well-known cartoon characters. The fun at Puteri Harbour came to an end as the group enjoyed a delightful scrumptious lunch at Lat’s Place.
After lunch, the group made a quick visit to Kota Iskandar, formerly called Johor State New Administrative Centre (JSNAC).
The tour then continued to its most awaited part – a visit to theme park Legoland Malaysia – which offers six explorable lands such as Lego City, Miniland, Lego Kingdom, Imagination, Lego Technic and Land of Adventure.
Legoland was an instant hit with the children – as they experienced – driving a car, flying an aeroplane, piloting a boat and much more. It was indeed a great opportunity for kids to explore the theme park while exhausting their boundless energy! The adults also had an amazing time enjoying some of the thrilling rides.
The group also got the opportunity to see the impressive Mini Land which comprises famous landmarks from all Asian countries made from Lego bricks. From the famous Petronas twin tower to Brunei’s majestic Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque, the attractions looked even more realistic with the vehicles moving within its amazing structures.
The Brunei holidaymakers were also entertained by the recently launched Star Wars Miniland. It is an indoor attraction that features 2,000 well-known Lego Star Wars models and iconic scenes from all six episodes of the Star Wars: The Clone Wards animated series. The Miniland’s impressive backdrop with the light and sound effects transports its visitors to the fascinating world of Star Wars!
The group left the park late in the afternoon after they had shopped for souvenirs at the theme park for their loved ones back in Brunei. The fun-filled family time at Legoland Malaysia not just brought joyful moments but left a lasting impression on the holidaymakers.
During the final night at Johor Bahru, the group did some last-minute shopping within the areas of the hotel, before heading towards their next holiday destination – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
