Everything you need to know about Putrajaya

Putrajaya is Malaysia's third and latest Federal Territory. Built on an expansive marshland and former oil palm estate in Selangor, the city spans an area of almost 5,000 hectares and lies 25 km from Kuala Lumpur. Putrajaya takes over the administrative functions of the capital city Kuala Lumpur and is part of the Multimedia Super Corridor project of the Malaysian government.

Much organisation and planning have gone into the development of Putrajaya as a modern city with the latest communication technologies and progressive infrastructure. The streets are elegantly designed with a European feel, along with well-paved roads while the government buildings are a blend of modern architecture with Islamic arts. Commercial, authoritative and residential areas have been divided into precincts that blend into each other cohesively. A waterway cuts through the city, flowing into a large lake. The concrete landscape is balanced with lots of parks, greenery and wetlands but because the land is relatively flat, it does not look lush.

There are several places that visitors can explore. Those coming from KLIA airport will only take minutes to reach Putrajaya. On the other hand, there are plenty of bus and railway services to ferry you to Putrajaya from Kuala Lumpur.

Restaurants & Dining in Putrajaya

B’s All Day Dining

B’s All Day Dining restaurant in Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside Hotel impresses us with its culinary combinations that are inspired, with subtle and robust flavours. Spread out across a spacious corner lot, one of its highlights is the fact that the restaurant offers gorgeous views of the Putrajaya Lakeside through its floor-to-ceiling windows.

Attuned to the elegance of the menu, B's All Day Dining has a sophisticated interior design: muted wall tones offset by dark wood furniture and red pendant lighting, and chrome, glass and steel fixtures. It is both understated and modern. We love the restaurant’s numerous seating options too - from bar-style counters with high chairs, and cosy diner booths, to private rooms just perfect for that high-powered corporate lunch.
