Taking a Taxi from Singapore to LEGOland Malaysia

Singapore-Johor cross-border taxi fare


You cannot take a regular Singapore taxi across the border to LEGOland Malaysia. Instead, you must use a cross-border taxi. So, this is what we did:

1. 5 minute local taxi ride from hotel in Clarke Quay to the Ban San Street Taxi Stand, next to the Queen Street Bus Terminal -- SGD$7

2. Cross-border taxi from Ban San Street stand to LEGOland -- SGD$70 for 3 adults and 2 kids
  • 40 minute ride to Woodlands checkpoint, driving against rush hour traffic
  • 5 minutes to stamp passports for exiting Singapore
  • Drive across causeway into Malaysia
  • 10 minutes at Malaysian immigration
  • 25 minute ride from immigration directly to LEGOland
  • Note: The concierge told us we'd have to transfer to a local Malaysian taxi after crossing the border, but our driver was willing to take us all the way to LEGOland.
We asked the driver to come back at 6:30 p.m. (half an hour after closing that day) to bring us back for another SGD$70. Joy of joys! I must have tipped him enough because he was waiting for us when we exited after a long day of fun. I didn't see many other taxis queueing up, so I am very glad that we had one booked.  He drove us 90 minutes back to Ban San Street where we had to transer to a local Singapore taxi to get back to the hotel.

Round trip, it ended up being SGD$154. We had door-to-door service and much more flexibility with when we wanted to depart and return than if we had taken a shuttle bus or tour bus.


Singapore Flyer - LEGOland Round-trip Shuttle
WTS Travel offers on-line booking and payment for their shuttle bus. In Low Season, there are 4 departures/returns each day. In Peak Season, there are 5 departures/returns per day. One way trips from Singapore to LEGOland are also an option. You must choose your times when booking.

Packages include the transportation only or one or both LEGOland parks plus transportation. Depending on the season, prices range from SGD$20-30 per person for round-trip transportation only. They sometimes have discounts on park admission. WTS accepts PayPal for the payment. Book at least a week early as the buses fill up. I have not tried this service myself but am keeping it in mind for our next trip. Click here to make a booking. The company also has a shuttle from Singapore to Hello Kitty Town/ Little Big Club in Johor.


Finally reaching LEGOland Malaysia.

  6. Thanks for this post. Now we have an idea when and what limousine taxi service to hire.

  7. We went there in April by hiring a private limousine which can sit up to 6 people. It cost SGD$190 for round trip, picking us up and dropping off directly at our hotel (near the flyer). Very convenient especially when you have small kids.

  10. Hi. Are the kids free or did you have to pay $10 per kid too? Thank you!

    1. Since it was $70 total one way, I think we were charged $40 for the trip plus $10 for each of 3 adults and the kids were free.

    1. We stayed in the taxi and just handed the passports out through the windows. Immigration stamped it and passed it back to us through the window. Did not have to disembark at all.

    1. If you are looking for high thrill rides, you will NOT find them at LEGOland and would probably be happier with Universal. The rides are better suited for 2-12 year olds although they certainly let adults on them. Looking at the LEGO models of Asian landmarks takes 45 minutes to an hour if you are interested in looking at details in each scene. See my post "Building a day of fun at LEGOland Malaysia" linked at the bottom of this post for more information.

  19. Thanks for the write up. Since we had a bit more flexibility in our plans, we decided to head over to the flyer and chance buying same day tickets. We got there at 9:30 on a Friday, bought our 3 tickets, and were on the bus 10 minutes later. It could not have gone smoother.

  20. Hi, I agree with you that a private hire gives much more flexibility than a coach, especially since you get to decide on the time and location for departure. Furthermore, you save time because you won't have to alight and queue at customs. However, a 7-seater should cost less than SGD 200 for a return trip. You must have been overcharged!

  26. Hi, A trip to lego island looks very worrisome. It has to pass cross border country. But taxi is an affordable mode of transportation in all countries. Hope taxi will help customers who are traveling in this area.
