Yours truly was truly mesmerized when I was strolling in the MINILAND. It was truly and amazing new way to see the world in MINILAND, the centrepiece of every LEGOLAND®Park. Did you know that it took three years and more than 30 million LEGO® bricks to recreate some of Asia’s best known landmarks in detailed miniature (on a scale of 1:20).
Stroll through famous scenes from 17 Asian countries, including the Petronas Twin Towers, the Merlion Statue and the Taj Mahal.
The whole of MINILAND is animated, and visitors – big and small – can bring the models to life at the touch of a button. It was certainly one of the most fascinating things to do, admiring the likeness and then marvelling how people can create it with LEGO® bricks...

Putrajaya is a planned city, located 25km south of Kuala Lumpur that serves as the federal administrative centre of Malaysia.
