Sealife Malaysia at Legoland Johor, Malaysia

On the last day of our Legoland holiday, we went into the Theme Park again. Reason being my princess wanted to drive again. And the rest wanted to go on the Dragon Roller Coaster. We spent another 2 hours at the Park. After that we cooled off at the Sealife Malaysia which was air conditioned.Disclosure: This page contains affiliate links, and at no additional cost to you, we earn a small commission if you click through and make a purchase.The Sealife Malaysia is a rather new addition to Legoland Johor. Its an interesting sea life aquarium with many different sea species on display. Its not as big as the Aquaria KLCC but had better displays than the Water World in Langkawi. The displays were really vibrant. The staff were also very helpful and friendly. As with all the staff at Legoland. They took their time answering all our enquiries. Especially the nice guy that was taking care of the Stingray Display. I loved seeing stingrays swim. They are so graceful. They were so lively. The staff there mentioned they are young stingrays. That is why they are so frisky and it was about to feeding time.The seahorse displays were also beautiful. The lady there showed us the different spicies and also the difference between male and female.
They even have a little treasure hunt which kids could do and learn about fishes. Sold at a very reasonable price. I felt like that was a good idea as kids can learn about the sealife during the tour. Rather than just walking around admiring the fishes.
The interactive colouring station is very innovative and fun for both kids and adults. This place is not too big, so you can cover all the exhibits in less than 2 hours.

My Verdict

Sea Life Malaysia was interesting and educational. Its a nice place to cool off. You can visit it after your day at the Theme Park. Their staffs are a real gem. They were willing to answer our questions and queries. Which other aquariums that we have visited lacked. This place is not too big, so can cover all the exhibits in less than 2 hours.Klook.com

Legoland Malaysia Resort, Johor. Revisit

My second visit to this amazing resort. Stayed here before in 2016. That time we stayed in the Pirate Themed room. My two young boys had a great time then. Came back again this time cause my little girl was a baby the last time we stayed here. She was grumbling that, she never experienced staying in Legoland Hotel. This was after seeing the family photo of our holiday at Legoland Malaysia Resort.Disclosure: This page contains affiliate links, and at no additional cost to you, we earn a small commission if you click through and make a purchase.

So this time we took, a Kingdom Room for my little princess. As normal it was a comfortable and amazing stay. Service was excellent as usual. Staff were friendly and took extra effort to make the kids happy. Check in and out was fast. There is a huge area in the lobby to keep the children busy with Lego bricks. Kept my children occupied during our stay. So we spend very little time in the room. This time around there was a magic show in the lobby.

The room was spotless, beds were comfortable. The room and washroom was decorated with lego figures and the wallpaper to suit the kingdom theme. The bed with a roll away bed at the base could sleep 3 children. There is a children sink which my princess adored brushing her teeth. This time there were kids amenities too like little room sleepers and children toothbrush. My three kids rushed to find the clues with information to open the safe which had little presents for them.

KIDS AMENITIES

Food was nice. We had their BBQ on the first night. Nice varieties of colourful desserts. For the next day dinner, we walked out to Medini mall and had dinner at the Oldtown Cafe. There is lots of food outlets at the Medini Mall to choose from. There’s KFC, Burger King, a Thai Restaurant, Pizza Hut and more. Now there is even a grocer there. There ia even an ATM machine at the Mall. Breakfast at the Brick Family Restaurant spread was awesome. But it was a bit crowded and noisy. Can’t expect much, after all this is a family resort.

Don’t worry about the check out time. Cause the resort will validate the parking ticket that allows you to go out anytime after you check out. And you could either store your luggage at the concierge counter. Thats what we did, check out at 10.30am. Left our luggage at the concierge. Went again for another round at the theme park and the Sealife Malaysia. Then only left the area at 3pm.

My Verdict.

Great experience. Although its quite expensive but recommended at least once. Staff are really courteous and friendly. Kids were kept occupied with lots of lego blocks around the lobby. Overall a good vacation and the kids had lots of fun. All in all, we all enjoyed ourselves. As in all my reviews. Don’t listen to the moaners. Try this place at least once and you will not regret it.

Top 20 Reasons Why You Should Visit Malaysia




A land of many colors and cultures, Malaysia is the ideal holiday destination. From bustling cities to beautiful beaches, verdant rainforests to warm waters rich with marine life, there are so many beautiful places in Malaysia to see, and so much to do.

There are countless reasons to visit Malaysia, but here are the top twenty:

1. Malaysia is the ideal blend of east and west. With all the comforts of the Western world at your fingertips, you are free to explore the rich Malaysian culture – from visiting major cities to exploring areas of natural beauty. And when you come home exhausted from sight-seeing, there are hot power showers, five-star standard accommodation and international cuisine according to preference.

2. Visiting Malaysia is great for the budget traveler, as everything – from hotels to food, transport to shopping – can be done cheaply if you do your research.

3. Malaysian society is geared towards tourism, so everywhere you go you will find accommodation to suit your pocket, people ready to help you find your way, and travel/transport facilities to give you access to all the important sites and attractions.

4. If you’re crazy for culinary delights, you’ll fall in love with Malaysian food. Local dishes reflect Malay, Indian and Chinese influences, and are famous for being a little spicy, a little eclectic, and whole lot delicious! Make sure you try the famed nasi lemak, Malaysia’s national dish – coconut rice served with a spicy chilli based paste called sambal along side with fried anchovies and peanuts, omelet and cucumber. Sell famously delicious items in most towns, and the seafood is also exceptional along the coast.

5. Whether you’re looking for big brand name goods or indigenous art pieces, Malaysia is the place to shop. Kuala Lumpur is the shopping capital, and the shops will put on grand sales at least twice a year to draw in tourist shoppers. The multitude of malls cater to every desire and taste, with products made in the Far East side by side with more recognizable brands. There are malls in Penang and Langkawi too, for those looking to combine a beach retreat with some holiday shopping.

6. Dreaming of palm-fringed beaches of white sand, and waves gently lapping at the shore? This dream is a reality at Malaysia’s many beach resorts. Sun sea and sand enthusiasts will be delighted at Malaysia’s kilometers of coastline and idyllic islands, with their pristine stretches of sand and clean waters.

7. A glance at the Malaysia map reveals much more than just beaches. Malaysia is also home to rainforests of untold natural beauty, a veritable treasure-trove of flora and fauna. Take an excursion or an adventure tour to get to grips with the rainforests in all their ecological beauty.


8. If the beach resorts and nature treks are not really your scene, Malaysia’s big cities will definitely keep you occupied. Shopping is not the only activity on offer. You can also check out the myriad of fantastic restaurants and cafes in Kuala Lumpur, or browse the night markets, sampling satay and collecting souvenirs as you go! Day or night, there’s always plenty to do.

9. Malaysia’s amusement parks are all-round great fun for families, and a must-visit while in the country. Take a ride up to Genting to see the sprawling multi-million ringgit theme park at 2,000 meters (there are hotels and casinos nearby too), or visit Sunway Lagoon, a giant complex on 80 acres that includes a full-size resort and a water park as well as countless rides, attractions and eateries.

10. Of course, one of Malaysia’s premier attractions is the countless places of historical and cultural interest to visit. A trip to Malacca, heart of Malaysian history, is imperative – the city abounds with beautiful buildings, including St Paul’s Church, the Sultanate Museum and the A’Famosa Fortress. Gerogetown in Penang is also a UNESCO heritage site steeped in rich history and culture, and sightseers are urged to explore both cities.

11. Beautiful places in Malaysia include natural wonders of immense beauty and man-made structures of exceptional grandeur, like the Batu Caves near KL or the giant caves in Gunung Mulu National Park in Sarawak. Usually these spots are associated with beautiful temples that are decorated in amazing detail.

12. Visitors to Malaysia love the temperate weather – though there is a monsoon season, the weather is pleasant year-round, and even during rains there are often sunny spells in between.

13. Aside from traditional Malaysian dishes, one of the big attractions of eating in Malaysia is the variety of fresh fruit available. Mangoes, lychees and mangosteens are widely available, as well as the more unusual durian and rambutans.

14. Malaysia is now home to numerous sporting events, so if you’re a fan you’ll find this the ideal spot to catch up on your favorite. Watch the Petronas Grand Prix and the Tour de Langkawi, or check out some action on the water at the Langkawi International Regatta or the annual Surfing Competition in Pahang.

15. Aside from sports, other cultural events are being held which may also interest the discerning traveler. The World Kites Festival promises to be a colourful affair, as does National Craft Day and the Chinese New Years’ celebration. Throughout the year there are many fun and fascinating events to attend.

16. A country rich in traditional and culture, Malaysia produces a wide variety of handicraft items, including hand carved wooden panels, pewter decorations, rattan bags and baskets and batik textiles. Learn the skills, or simply pick up a few pieces as souvenirs.

17. Nature lovers will fall in love with Malaysia’s rainforests, but aside from plant life there are also many animal species to be found in their natural habitats, including monkeys, leopards, tigers bears and rhinos. If you prefer your animals a little more contained, the KLCC Aquaria is worth a visit, as are the Butterfly and Bird Parks. Taking a trip to Kuala Selangor to see the magical fireflies is also highly recommended.

18. Divers love to visit Malaysia because it is home to one of the best dive sites in the world, a tiny volcanic island called Sipadan. The reefs here are home to dozens of hawksbill and green turtles, as well as all kinds of fish. You may even encounter a shark or two!

19. For those looking for more quiet and seclusion than is available at the average beach resort, island getaways provide a great alternative. Malaysia’s many islands, some very developed and others totally unspoilt, form the perfect backdrop to an idyllic beach holiday.

20. Sporty types will love holidaying in Malaysia – sport tourism opportunities include golf, cycling, mountaineering, and even hiking, jungle trekking and caving. Watersports on offer range from parasailing to jetskiing and surfing – truly something for everyone!

How to Keep Cool in Malaysia

Keeping your Cool in Tropical Malaysia



Coolong offMalaysia is an area associated with warm and friendly people, blessed with natural wonders. We have a variety of places as well as activities for almost everyone from stunning beaches, jungles, historical sites plus much more. It’s an enjoyable destination to explore for a truly Asian Experience. Malaysia, situated near the equator has a climate that is warm as well as humid throughout the year. Therefore if you are traveling around Malaysia, keeping cool is essential for you to have a pleasurable journey. Here are some simple methods for cooling off in Tropical Malaysia.

 

1. Drink Coconut Water

coconutThe refreshing coconut water has long been a favorite beverage for keeping one’s body cool throughout Malaysia. This particular sweet beverage will not only cool you but also energize you because of its high levels of carbohydrates as well as proteins.  Therefore rather than reaching for that fizzy carbonated beverages which will merely provide you with a temporary relief, just head over to a local stall and enjoy the cool coconut water.

 

2. Eat Hot and Spicy Food

chiliYou must be thinking this guy have to be insane. Eat hot and spicy food in a hot country.  You might have realized that the hottest country have the spiciest food and the spiciest chili.  Eating spicy food can stimulate the heat receptors that are in your mouth and trigger your body to perspire. And everyone knows perspiration is our natural cooling system.  However if you are not use to hot and spicy food, avoid it or else you will spend the rest of your holiday in the toilet.

3. Wear Lightweight Clothes

Put on lightweight, light colored cotton clothes. Cotton fibers absorb perspiration and when it evaporates it will cause you to be cool. Light color reflects the heat whereas darker color absorbs heat.  Additionally make sure your clothing is loose fitting. This is to encourage air flow to your body. Avoid synthetics clothes cause this type of fabric don’t permit you to perspire.

4.  Avoid Caffeine or Alcoholic Beverages.

Coffee I’m sure that on a hot day, you feel like reaching out for your favorite brew. It’s best to avoid alcoholic beverages as well as caffeine during the day because this can lead to dehydration. Drink lots of water; don’t wait until you feel thirsty. If you are dehydrated as well as hot you run the risk of acquiring sunstroke. This is very serious. Even if you drink alcohol at night, make sure you additionally drink lots of water in order to balance out dehydration.

5.  Choose Cool Holiday Locations

If you are going for a holiday then head to where it’s cool.  Such as a breezy beach, up on hills or even in the jungle. Malaysia has some great spots to choose from. For beach my personal favorites are Port Dickson and Cherating.  In terms of cool hills head over to Cameron Highlands.
