You would drive or taking public transport?

Hello Kitty Town and Legoland are close to each others which are located at Iskandar area (near second link). The distance between Iskandar to Johor Premium Outlet is about 30km which is 25 minutes driving distance.

If you are driving then you should be able to cover all these places. 2 days is more than enough. You can visit the theme park on day time and JPO during night time.

If you are taking public transport there are new bus lines launched by CW start on September. Details as below.

LG1 will be plying JB SENTRAL – LARKIN SENTRAL – LEGOLAND ® MALAYSIAGELANG PATAH and JPO2 will be plying CIQ 2nd LINK – LEGOLAND ® MALAYSIA – JPO.

Passengers travelling from Singapore via Causeway need to transit to bus LG1 at JB Sentral.

If travelling via Second Link, passengers need to transit to bus JPO2 at CIQ 2nd Link (Malaysia).

Please log on to our website www.causewaylink.com.my for more information.

Hope it is help!

Thank you zhixun

That's really informative.

We are thinking of hiring a mini van for this trip as there will be about 12 people in our group. Do you have any suggestions as to who we can contact? Hopefully, this person can pick us from S'pore.

By the way how much time does it takes to travel from JB town to the team park? We are still thinking whether we should stay at Pulai Spring or a hotel in JB town..

Looking forward to any advice...

You could refer to this link tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g298278-i9406-k493… for the mini bus contact.

City Area Pros, more variety of food, more night life and close to KSL, City Square and Pelangi Shopping more. Cons, High crime and complicated.

From JB town to Theme park about 30KM.

Pulai Spring Pros, situated central between Theme Park and JPO, more relax, quiet and good security. Cons, no night life, food is not much variety. You have no car then hard to travel to else way for your food.

As for the mini bus, you need to go down from the bus at both CIQ (JB and Singapore), in case 11 persons may be can hire a Hyundai Starex can pass both CIQ same as sedan car.

i'm planning this May go to the same directions, which are legoland, kittyland and JPO.

could you suggest which hotel I should stay (around 3-4 stars hotel)?

and the hotel must meet the conditions:

- must near public transport station or bus station, because we are willing to go to the location by public bus

- near foodstall, foodcourt, supermarket, etc

thank you in advance

Pulai Spring to JB Sentral will easily take you 45mins to an hour depends traffic condition. If you using bus that will spending longer time.
