LEGOs aren’t just mainly bricks. You’ve probably noticed the significance of satisfaction when two LEGO bricks come together which now has become an indispensable medium for the expression of creativity and art sculptures. If you are impressed with the masterpieces by Nathan Sawaya, you shouldn’t give LEGOLAND a miss. LEGOLAND Malaysia is located at Nusajaya Johor, the 1st LEGO themed in Asia which was opened in first quarter of 2012. As the name suggest, LEGOLAND are marketed to families with younger children but do not fret, adults can enjoy it too.
