Wah, now we have Legoland Malaysia in Johor Bahru!! And it is the first Legoland Park in Asia ! And we say, kau hado, kau mampu?
It is located within the new township of Nusajaya, Johor that also houses the Johor State and Federal government office or known as Johor State New Administrative Centre (JSNAC).
