Places of interest in Putrajaya
Around the world, planned cities or relocated capitals are not uncommon. But Putrajaya is unique and unforgettable because of its development philosophy and design. This philosophy is guided by the fundamental trinity of human relationship-between man and his creator, between man and his fellow man, and between man and his environment. Essentially, the development and design of Putrajaya is based on the theme of a garden city that is in harmony with its natural environment yet it is modern, futuristic, unique and very Malaysian.
Due to its seat within the Multimedia Super Corridor, Putrajaya will pay a crucial role in the country's quest to be the centre of Information Technology in the region. However, its Malaysian character and identity will still feature prominently through its use of Moorish/European architecture which is overlaid with Islamic and Malaysian elements.
Tourist will find it extremely easy to get around the city in comfort due to its pedestrian streets, shaded footpaths and reliable public transportation. Support services like banks, tourist information centres, travel agencies, internet cafes and the post office will be centrally located. Accommodation will be varied to cater for all budgets and range from luxury hotels and service apartments to budget motels and camping sites.
