"LEGOLAND Malaysia is more than just a theme park; we're a catalyst for tourism growth in Johor and beyond," said CS Lim, divisional director of LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort.

"Our focus on unique cultural experiences and family-friendly entertainment aligns perfectly with MOTAC's vision, making us a magnet for Singaporeans and other international travellers, as well as domestic travellers alike."

This initiative to attract Singaporean and international visitors adds on to LEGLAND Malaysia's previous efforts to lure Indonesian tourists.
