Malaysia’s new tourist magnet Legoland is celebrating its 2nd birthday. Having been opened to the public on 15th September 2012, it was the sixth LEGOLAND worldwide and the very first in Asia.
Since then it has become a key driver of tourism in southern Peninsular Malaysia. In the first year the target of 1.5 million visitors has been far exceeded, according to Legoland’s General Manager Siegried Boerst. The centrepiece of Legoland is a huge area called Miniland, where Asian landmarks have been recreated. It took more than 30 million LEGO bricks to build this fascinating world on a scale of 1:20, where people, trains and aeroplanes come to life at the touch of a button.
