Well run, good quality and good value as a bonus, LEGOLAND Malaysia makes a fun and exciting holiday side trip from Singapore. But if you’re like me, you like to do your research first – particularly if you are taking your kids to a foreign country.

We test-ran two of the main ways to get your family to LEGOLAND from Singapore – here’s how it went!

A lot of Australians want to visit LEGOLAND during their Singapore holiday – but for many, it may seem a little daunting. Where exactly is it? Is it hard to get there? Are you allowed to go to LEGOLAND Malaysia from Singapore?

We found that even as a family with teenagers, a visit to Malaysia LEGOLAND is definitely well-worth the effort. Once you’ve got the logistics worked out, it’s really quite easy to get yourself and your fellow LEGO lovers singing “Everything is Awesome!” in beautiful LEGOLAND Malaysia in no time!

Is there a LEGOLAND in Singapore?!

The LEGOLAND Malaysia Hotel

No, there isn’t a LEGOLAND in Singapore – but there is a LEGOLAND very close to Singapore!

It was just a week before we left for our Singapore trip when I learned that there was a LEGOLAND near to Singapore. Upon further research I found it was actually in a neighbouring country – Malaysia. But how exactly do you get to LEGOLAND Malaysia from Singapore?!

Can you drive from Singapore to Malaysia?

The Johor Strait is the water (and border) between Singapore and Malaysia spanned by two bridges

The Johor Strait is the water (and border) between Singapore and Malaysia

Despite Singapore being an island, thanks to two long bridges across the water that separates the two countries – the Johor Strait – you can actually drive from Singapore to Malaysia LEGOLAND! No ferries to Malaysia and LEGOLAND are needed! But what is needed is specific vehicles with cross-border permission.

Being only one hour’s drive away from Singapore Airport, it seemed really doable to me. I was determined to make a trip to LEGOLAND Malaysia happen!

LEGOLAND Malaysia makes a great Singapore day trip or overnight trip

LEGOLAND Malaysia is a fun family destination only one hour from Singapore

LEGOLAND Malaysia is a fun family destination only one hour from Singapore

I shuffled our still-rough Singapore itinerary around (no mean feat when the Singapore attractions we were visiting were closed on certain days!) so that we had a whole free day and night. Then I started researching how to get myself and my girls to Malaysian LEGOLAND.

Can you go to LEGOLAND Malaysia as a day trip from Singapore?

Yes. As Malaysia LEGOLAND is only one hour’s drive away from Singapore, it’s definitely possible to visit LEGOLAND Malaysia as a day trip from Singapore.

The LEGOLAND bus arrives mid-morning at leaves at at 5:15pm in the afternoon. So you do miss out on some afternoon/evening fun time. A private car trip would give you extra time, as you can choose pick up time.

That said, I wouldn’t recommend doing LEGOLAND as a day trip from Singapore if you have a night to spare. The reason being that then your kids would be missing out on staying at one of the most fun hotels for kids in the world, Malaysia’s LEGOLAND Hotel! And Unlike some other theme park main hotels, a night or two at the LEGOLAND Malaysia Hotel isn’t hugely expensive.

Malaysia LEGOLAND hotel rates are reasonable in comparison to Singapore hotels – so it’s not costing you any more than staying in Singapore for the night. (LEGOLAND in Malaysia is even cheaper to stay in than California LEGOLAND, but it’s just as fun!)

How far is LEGOLAND Malaysia from Singapore?


LEGOLAND Malaysia is located in Iskandar Puteri in Johor, Malaysia, a neighboring country of Singapore in South-East Asia.

Singapore is an island. It’s connected to the Malaysia mainland via two long bridges spanning the Johor Strait. The bridge we crossed to get to LEGOLAND was named the Johor-Singapore Causeway.

Iskandar Puteri where LEGOLAND is located is 30 minute’s drive from the Malaysian city of Johor Bahru.

LEGOLAND Malaysia is around a 45 minute drive from the Singapore central business district.

LEGOLAND is around one hour’s drive from Singapore’s Changi Airport. Changi Airport is the huge international airport you will fly into from Australia (if you can, allow some extra time to explore this amazing airport’s family attractions!).

How far is LEGOLAND Malaysia from Kuala Lumpur?

LEGOLAND Malaysia is three and a half hours drive from Kuala Lumpur. So LEGOLAND Malaysia is actually located a lot closer to Singapore.

Crossing the Singapore-Malaysia border

The Singapore border check point

The Singapore border check point

The travel times I’ve mentioned from Singapore don’t take into account any possible delays at the Singapore-Malaysia land border checks, which can be hard to predict – anywhere from about twenty minutes all together, to maybe taking an hour or more.

There are two customs checkpoints either side of the Johor Strait bridges – one for each country.

On our trip, we went straight through each of the border checkpoints with no delay either way. It took around five to ten minutes at each check point.

My family test-ran two ways to get to LEGOLAND Malaysia from Singapore

We test ran two easy ways to get to LEGOLAND Malaysia

We test ran two easy ways to get to LEGOLAND Malaysia

I decided we would try the two main ways to get from Singapore to LEGOLAND Malaysia and back, so that I could let you know which worked best. We took a coach there and a private car back.

Both ways have their advantages and disadvantages, but each were safe, effective ways to go. They did differ in price, and so convenience. My comparison between the two ways to get to LEGOLAND from Singapore is coming up!

Things you need to know before you go to LEGOLAND Malaysia

The following information is everything I found out about traveling to LEGOLAND Malaysia from Singapore and back, visiting the main theme park and staying overnight at the LEGOLAND Hotel – which I highly recommend.

Our LEGOLAND trip was taken in August 2022, so prices, conditions and wait-times may vary according to your travel dates – double check everything and feel free to use this article as a useful planning tool.

What day is LEGOLAND Malaysia closed?

The same as the major Singapore tourist attractions, LEGOLAND Malaysia has days it is closed. The LEGOLAND theme park is currently closed on Wednesdays (January 2023), and the LEGOLAND Malaysia water park is closed on Tuesdays. The LEGOLAND Aquarium is open every day.

It’s important that you check if the LEGOLAND attraction you want to visit will be open on your planned visiting dates – this can also change if there are public holidays.

If you’re planning to take your family to Singapore Universal Studios too, make sure you schedule them both in before you buy the tickets for either, as Universal Singapore also closes on certain days.

For us, the main LEGOLAND theme park was where we wanted to visit (there is also a LEGOLAND Water Park and a LEGOLAND Sea Life Aquarium on site).

Check the opening dates status on their official website. It may even be wise to call LEGOLAND to double-check too.

Legoland Malaysia tickets

Another way is going through the motions of trying to purchase entry tickets on their official website simply to check that the dates are available (but you can save money by buying your entrance tickets on a third party ticket app like Pelago or the cheapest one that I could find, Klook).

LEGOLAND Malaysia opening hours

The LEGOLAND Malaysia theme park is open 10am to 6pm (excepting Wednesdays when it is closed) some days and 10am to 8pm others – you really need to check on their website, because it varies from week to week.

The LEGOLAND Malaysia Water Park is open from 10am to 6pm every day (excepting Tuesdays when it is closed).

The LEGOLAND Malaysia Sea Life Aquarium is open from 10am to 6pm every day.

Do Australians need a Visa to go to Malaysia?

No. Australians (tourists) don’t need a visa to enter Malaysia for a short stay (we stayed one night at the LEGOLAND Hotel).

Although Australian citizens holding an Australian Passport don’t need a visa to enter Malaysia, you MUST take your passport to enter.

Your passport is stamped both entering and exiting Malaysia at the land border.

On our passport stamp it says “permitted to enter for 99 days for social reasons”. You’ll see an example passport entry stamp in our passports in our bus video.

Do you need to be vaccinated to enter Malaysia?

From 1st August 2022 you are allowed to enter Malaysia regardless of your COVID-19 vaccination status and don’t require COVID-19 tests or quarantine.

The Singapore 3 day entry card

What you do need to get is another Singapore (3 days notice) entry card to re-enter Singapore upon your return. (More about this following)

Documents & COVID vaccinations Australians need to enter Singapore as a tourist (no visa)

When entering Singapore (even re-entering from Malaysia after you’ve just only just left Singapore to visit LEGOLAND), you’ll either need to be fully COVID vaccinated or do a prior COVID test.

Fully vaccinated travelers can enter Singapore without COVID testing or quarantine.  

You’ll need to prove your vaccinated status with your Australian COVID Vaccination certificate – the International Vaccination Certificate (this is not just a copy of your Medicare one). It’s available from your Australian government My Gov account using a computer browser (not mobile phone browser) after selecting “Centrelink”.

You can show the Australian International Vaccination Certificate as official proof of your vaccinations upon entry into Singapore.

There is also an extra (non-compulsory but official) step to verify your vaccination status online at the Singapore Vaccination Check Portal which I did, so we didn’t need to show any vaccination proof on our trip. (I always carry copies of our vaccination certificates just in case though). I’d recommend doing this extra step before your trip to expedite your Singapore Changi airport entry processing.

What does Singapore regard as fully vaccinated?

Fully vaccinated is regarded as two doses for adults and whatever is considered fully vaccinated for your child in Australia at that time. My youngest (14 years then) had had two vaccination as per government recommendations at that time anyhow.

Fully vaccinated is currently regarded as two brand-acceptable vaccinations like Pfizer (except for kids under 12). 

Can I go to Singapore if I’m not vaccinated?

Yes. If you’re not fully vaccinated you’ll need to do a PCR test prior to arrival in Singapore and hold travel insurance with a minimum coverage of SGD30,000.

This vaccination information is correct as of January 2023 – check the most recent Singapore immigration requirements at the Singapore Australian Embassy official website here.

A 2nd Singapore SG Arrival Card is needed upon return from LEGOLAND

The MyICA Mobile App to fill out your Singapore Arrival Card

The MyICA Mobile App to fill out your Singapore Arrival Card

When visiting Singapore from anywhere, you are also required to lodge what is called an SG Arrival Card online using the MyICA Mobile app.

The Singapore Arrival Card is a FREE process. Don’t fall for scamming websites offering to do it for you for a fee or charge!

Make sure to keep the MyICA App on your phone to show proof of your lodged Singapore arrival card if necessary.

The SG Arrival Card must be submitted within the 3 days prior to your visit.

That doesn’t mean it has to be done at least 3 days prior. It means you can do it any time within that 3 days.

Therefore you’ll also be required to do an additional SG Arrival Card for your re-entry into Singapore from LEGOLAND Malaysia. Even if you’re only on a day trip to LEGOLAND.

The lodged online Singapore entry card and your Australian passport is all you need to re-enter Singapore when returning from LEGOLAND Malaysia.

How to fill in a Singapore Entry Card

The entry card is nothing to worry about. You can do it any time online within 3 days before arriving in Singapore from Australia or Malaysia.

Although it’s better to be prepared, if you forget to do it beforehand you can still fill the Arrival Card out on the LEGOLAND bus or in your private car on the way back to Singapore from LEGOLAND Malaysia – or even when you arrive at the Singapore/Malaysia border crossing checkpoint if you like.

Tip: If traveling by private car, ask your car company to provide you with your private car details (the registration number) prior to the day they pick you up so that you can fill out/lodge your Singapore re-entry SG Arrival Card in advance. This avoids the inconvenience of doing it in the car, or having to sit at Singapore Immigration doing it at the last minute.

For our return LEGOLAND trip entry into Singapore, I asked for the private car rego number from the company, and then lodged our Singapore three day entry card online whilst still at our Singapore hotel the night before we even left for LEGOLAND.

(When arriving in Singapore, you can literally do a Singapore entry card at Changi Airport if you wish. I saw people standing around doing them, so last minute doesn’t seem to be a problem. That said, I wouldn’t recommend that, as airlines may have their own requirements before you leave for Singapore)

How I filled in our Singapore entry cards

Singapore 3 day entry card

A section of my Singapore 3 day entry card

For my first SG Arrival Card, I put my departure date as my final departure date from Singapore, even though I was submitting a second SG Arrival Card for our return from LEGOLAND Malaysia within that time period. It didn’t seem to cause any issues, so I assume the departure dates don’t have to be precise with regards to a Malaysia side trip. The entry dates however, must be correct.

How long does it take to cross the Malaysia-Singapore border?

Delays at the border are possible dependent upon the day and time. It can apparently take up to an hour. We had no delays at all and went straight through both there and back. We were held up no more than five to ten minutes at immigration on both sides of the border, however we entered Singapore on National Day morning, a public holiday – so we may have just got lucky!

The cheapest LEGOLAND Malaysia tickets are on Klook

Klook has cheap LEGOLAND theme park tickets

I like to shop around for the cheapest prices for anything, so I researched the prices of tickets on the official LEGOLAND website, the third party app Pelago and the third party app Klook.

I purchased through Klook as it had the cheapest LEGOLAND Malaysia tickets at the time.

I also liked that you could downloaded the Klook app to your phone and then have your purchased tickets easily accessible.

I ended up using Klook for cheap tickets to several Singapore attractions as well – it worked really well for me during our trip. Another benefit was that the ticket codes meant no standing around in queues – you can go straight to the express entrance gates.

Which is the best way to get to LEGOLAND from Singapore? A comparison.

We trialed and compared the two main ways tourists usually take to get to LEGOLAND Malaysia easily. By private driver, and by coach.

There are two coach companies that go from Singapore to LEGOLAND.

I checked the reviews and decided to book with WTS Travel.

Where is the bus station at the Singapore Flyer?

This is where the coach bay is, right in front of the Singapore Flyer big wheel

You meet at the large coach bay area literally at the base of the entrance to the Singapore Flyer big Ferris wheel in the early morning. There is a second pick up station at Jurong East Venture Avenue (outside of the Singapore CBD).

This is the way you walk from the MRT Promenade railway station to the bus stop at the Singapore FlyerSingapore Flyer Bus Bay

SingaporThis is the way you walk from the MRT Promenade railway station to the bus stop at the Singapore FlyerSingapore Flyer Bus Baye Flyer Bus Bay

The closest MRT station to the Singapore Flyer is “Promenade” – about a ten minutes walk away. The way we walked is marked on the above map in red. You are out in the heat and do need to cross major roads to get there. If you have little kids and suitcases, it may be wise to get a taxi or a Grab car to the bus stop.

About Singapore Taxis and Grab cars (Singapore Ubers)

You can catch a taxi to and from the bus station at the Singapore Flyer

You can catch a taxi to and from the bus station at the Singapore Flyer

Whilst in Singapore we caught taxis most of the time – particularly if we were short on time, or there was no convenient MRT station. Costs for taxis and Grab cars (Singapore’s version of Uber cars) are similar – the benefits of Grab (download the Grab app) are that you have already paid online so you don’t need to fumble around or wait at the destination to pay. Singapore taxi drivers/Grab car drivers don’t require tips.

Be at the WTS bus station 15 minutes early

WTS Coaches will tell you to be there half an hour prior. Be there 15 minutes prior – the driver didn’t appear or open the door until then and it’s hot to wait outside, even that early in the morning.

It was a Monday and we and one other person were the only people on the coach, so I really did appreciate the fact they were still running the service.

What happens at the Singapore Malaysia land border checks by coach

Once you set off, it really seems like you are at Singapore immigration in no time, right before the bridge crossing to Malaysia.

The coach stops and everyone gets off and walks inside the immigration building.

Singapore officials check your passport (Singapore don’t stamp your passport anywhere).

Your suitcases stay on the bus and the bus moves to meet you where you come out of the building at the other end.

This whole process only took 5 minutes. (This was a Monday morning at around 9am)

After you exit Singapore customs your bus will be waiting for you on the other side

What happens at the Malaysia Immigration border check by coach

After driving across the long bridge between Singapore and Malaysia, the coach stops at Malaysia immigration on the other side.

The Malaysian border checkpoint entrance

Everyone gets off and retrieves all of their suitcases and bags from the bus to take with them.

You proceed inside the immigration building to a desk where they check your passport and stamp it. Then you walk through to the bag checking area.

All bags are put on an x-ray conveyor belt, and you walk through an x-ray detector like you do at an airport.

Then you collect your bags and head back out to the bus which has moved down and is waiting outside.

Again, this whole process only took about 5 minutes.

Our coach was waiting at the other end of Malaysian immigration

One tip we were told by our coach driver is MAKE SURE THAT MALAYSIAN IMMIGRATION PUT THE CORRECT DATE ON YOUR PASSPORT STAMP. Apparently, it’s common for a wrong date to be put on by mistake, and then you may need to pay a fine later. It certainly can’t hurt to double-check that your passport date stamp is correct before you leave Malaysian Immigration for LEGOLAND. If you watch our video you’ll see an example of our passport date stamp to check.

The LEGOLAND Coach drops you off at the car park

We arrived at LEGOLAND Malaysia at around 10:30am. The coach drops passengers off at the main carpark, which on a Monday morning was mostly empty – we had to walk around 500 metres with our bags down a long, shaded concrete path. (our private car picked us up right at the Hotel entrance, so no walk)

Return WTS Coach from LEGOLAND to Singapore

To catch the WTS Coach back to Singapore, meet it at the same car park drop off point at 5:15pm in the afternoon.

How much does the Singapore bus to LEGOLAND cost?

The price of the WTS Travel Singapore Flyer bus to LEGOLAND Malaysia costs $13 Singapore Dollars per person.

How do I book a seat on the LEGOLAND Malaysia bus?

The company we used was WTS Travel. We encountered no problems with this company during our booking, payment and trip.

General and booking information is available at their official website here: https://www.wtstravel.com.sg Their phone number is +65 6466 8558

Using a private car service to and from Singapore to LEGOLAND is a very convenient, but of course much more expensive option.

Certain companies with a permit to cross the border offer this service. I used the company most talked about positively in Facebook groups (I have put all the contact details at the end).

I saw MOSTLY good reviews online (I did a bit of Googling and saw a couple of complaints on Trip Advisor I think, however overall, this company seem well reviewed and looked professional – one person complained they had been dropped off at the wrong hotel, one complained of bad driving) For us, fortunately the service was excellent.

When to book:

I arranged our journey a few days in advance in Australia and paid without any issues. I recommend pre-booking to be sure.

There were a couple of slightly worrisome planning issues that ended up fine, like when you message with the car company via Whatsapp, however they responded immediately no matter the time of day and were very efficient.

SGMYTAXI payment options – you can use a Singapore app to pay them but only in Singapore, so ask them for a link to pay them by credit card from Australia (there is an extra charge of a few percent – this was really the only option available to us).

Important notes:

For the company we used, booking and arrangements are done via the Whatsapp App. Keep your Whatsapp live on your phone for messages with the company.

How it went – private car from LEGOLAND to Singapore

We were picked up at the LEGOLAND Hotel front entrance

We were picked up at the LEGOLAND Hotel front entrance

The car driver picked us up at the front door of the LEGOLAND Hotel. He was early by 5 minutes and called me to let me know. He was very helpful and respectful and loaded our suitcases. The vehicle was a spacious, air conditioned and modern mini van.

The Singapore & Malaysia border crossings are much easier by private car

The big difference between the LEGOLAND Coach and a private car is that you don’t have to get out of the car at the border.

At no point were we asked to get out of the car at either check point.

What happens at Malaysia Immigration by private car

Handing our passports to our driver - he handed them to the immigration officer

Handing our passports to our driver – he handed them to the immigration officer

After about twenty minute’s drive from LEGOLAND Malaysia, we arrived at the Malaysia Immigration car entrance.

The driver took our passports and handed them to the Malaysia Immigration officer. The immigration officer checked our identities by saying our names and asked us to lower our COVID masks one by one (this happened at any passport check at the time – masks are no longer mandatory).

The passports were stamped, and then we drove out of Malaysia Immigration.

What happens at Singapore Immigration by private car

The van door was opened for the immigration officer to check our faces

Then we drove through and over the bridge to Singapore Immigration. The passport check happened the same way – we didn’t need to get out of the car. The van door was opened by our driver so that our faces could be seen and checked against our passports by the immigration officer.

The van tailgate was raised and our bags were somehow checked or xrayed whilst still in the back of the van. The car was quickly checked over at the same time. That was it. It was all easy and quick.

We spent no more than 5 minutes at each immigration stop and it was a much easier process than the coach, where you had to get out and physically walk through the customs halls with your suitcases.

Suitcases are checked at the boot of the car

Passing through immigration took about ten minutes total at 8:30am on National Day (a Tuesday and a public holiday)

Soon we were back on our way to where we wanted to go in Singapore – the Jurong Bird Park.

Our driver had driven carefully all the way, was polite and helped us load and unload our suitcases. All in all, we were very happy with our private car experience.

We were delivered safe and sound to the Jurong Bird Park

How much does a private car to LEGOLAND cost?

We used the SGMYTAXI private car with driver company

We used the SGMYTAXI private car with driver company

The private car to LEGOLAND price was about $150 AUD ($130 SGD) one way (it was a public holiday so cost an extra 30%). Normally it would be about $120 AUD ($100 SGD).

How do I book a private car to LEGOLAND?

The private car company we used - SGMYTAXI

The private car company we used – SGMYTAXI

The company we used was Singapore – Malaysia private car services – SG-MYTAXI. We encountered no problems with this company during our booking, payment and trip.

General and booking information is available at their official website here: https://www.sgmytaxi.com and they quote and communicate exclusively through Whatsapp – their number is +6016 768 3773 .

Can you get to LEGOLAND Malaysia using public transport?

Singapore MRT train system

The Singapore MRT train system

Yes, you can get to LEGOLAND Malaysia using the MRT train or a taxi and then change to public bus to cross the border, or just public bus all the way. There is also a specific Causeway Link Bus. Apart from it being cheap, you really aren’t going to save much money in comparison to taking the Singapore Flyer coach that we took – but you will lose some time due to the transfers. You’ll also need to know where and how to change public buses with kids and cases in tow. Time is money when you are on holiday, so I dismissed these options to get to LEGOLAND as not particularly feasible for tourists.

Legoland Malaysia train

There is also a train that crosses the border from Johor Bahru, a major city half an hour from LEGOLAND near the Malaysia/Singapore border, however this means you need to get to Johor Bahru first. Again, not straight forward, but perhaps a fun adventure if you have extra time and want to check out the city too.

Can you get to LEGOLAND Malaysia by taxi?

Yes, you can. There are special Singapore & Malaysia taxis who have permits to allow them to make the border journey. They are limited to leaving and dropping off a one point – Ban San Street Taxi Stand in Bugis in Singapore. This means no direct pick up or drop off to your hotel, so catching two taxis. There’s no great savings in using two taxis instead of one private car, plus they can’t pick you up at your hotel or LEGOLAND and make the entire journey in one go, so to me this method seemed overly complicated.

Can you hire a car and drive yourself to LEGOLAND Malaysia?

Apparently this is possible, however you would need to discuss crossing the border to Malaysia with the Singapore hire car company as many don’t allow it. You would also need to contend with Malaysia and Singapore street directions, tolls and border crossings.

So, which is the best way to get to LEGOLAND Malaysia from Singapore – coach or private car?

It really depends on your budget and priorities.

Are you visiting LEGOLAND Malaysia on a tight budget? Take the LEGOLAND bus

WTS LEGOLAND Coach at the Singapore Flyer bus station

WTS LEGOLAND Coach at the Singapore Flyer bus station

If you have a tighter budget, the coach is cheap, comfortable and the border crossing is still simple.

If you have a larger family it may be closer to more cost-effective to go by car. For example, the three of us cost $39 Singapore Dollars by bus. The private car cost $130 Singapore Dollars – however it was a mini van, so could have carried two more people. Therefore the difference between the two would have been less, because 5 people would have cost $65 by coach.

In any case, the coach to LEGOLAND will cost significantly less than a private car and driver.

Is convenience more important to you than price? Order a private driver to get to LEGOLAND

Our SGMYTAXI at LEGOLAND Malaysia

If you have a higher budget, arrange a private car for an easier experience. You can be picked up at the airport or your hotel in Singapore, and be picked up at the door at the LEGOLAND Hotel. All at times that suit you, not a bus schedule.

You will also benefit from an easy border crossing without even having to get out of the vehicle.

Of course you pay much more. That’s the trade-off!

I hope my Singapore to LEGOLAND Malaysia guide helps you work out the best way for you to get your family to LEGOLAND Malaysia from Singapore.

Good luck with your decision, and have a wonderful time at LEGOLAND!

  1. Looking at a trip to Singapore later in the year and wanted to do legoland but thought it was WAY to hard. You have now made it seem possible and not so overwhelming with your detailed blog. Thanks sooo much!!!! Also adding the AUD has given me an approx cost to help with budgeting. Amazing!

    • LetsGoMum says:

      It’s such a good fun place to visit – if I had school-age kids, I definitely would not miss it – super easy to reach and cheap too if you use the bus service. The private car is more expensive, but it makes the trip even easier and Malaysia Legoland is just as much fun as California Including the hotel, although they are lacking the Castle hotel. I must say though that the swimming pool has to be one of the most beautiful – that view! Definitely worth taking the swimmers .
