Putrajaya is a garden city with an attention-grabbing variety of beautiful, colossal architecture. The Federal Government’s administrative hub of the country, it is about 25km from KL and spans a distance of 4932 hectares. A showcase of gorgeous urban planning, there is so much to see here that a tour should definitely be on the itinerary when you visit.
A prime example of architectural ambition, at the heart of Putrajaya is a 600-hectare manmade lake (with a towering, twin-deck bridge) fringed by landscaped parks and a diverse jumble of buildings. The Putra Lake and Putra Bridge, plus the pink Putra Mosque and Putra Perdana (PM’s office), are the city’s chief tourist attractions.
