New city in Malaysia Jul 02, 2011
We had a chance to go to Putrajaya; a new city which is just built in a few years. We 6 persons came to this city by KLIA City line from KL station and bought a city tour (choose type of car; we chose a van for 6 peoples) many places are very interesting. Pink Masjid is very beautiful. 2 hours is not enough. a driver is very kind.

Bad thing is very hot!!!

Putrajaya flower fest Jul 13, 2010
Want to pay a floral tribute to Malaysia? Revel in the excitement of Malaysia’a premier outdoor garden and flower showcase.As i set foot onto this place i was completely astounded with hues of bright red, forest green, flaming orange flowers and plants all around me. Seemed like a picture postcard.

The event was held at Waterfront, Precinct 2, Putrajaya. Showcasing the best of Malaysian and International landscape and horticulture industry, feel a complete romance of the senses with some of the best commercial landscape products to garden showcase and flower displays.

What was the theme for the event? Called the “Tropical Splendour”, FLORIA 2010 had the biggest collection of Heliconias in full bloom in an outdoor theme garden display.Amazed? I still am!

So what you waiting for. Go and be a part of the excitement before the event wraps up! Best time to visit: Mid July

"Real capital of Malaysia" Nov 23, 2010
Putrajaya is located 40 minutes away from the Kuala Lumpur by car. We know that Kuala Lumpur is the capital of the Malaysia. But i was shocked that this is newly built city which consist by government buildings and high-technology constructions. There many buildings which has traditional architectures. It was so quite at the night time. There is an artificial lake which is supplying the water requirement of this city. Also there is a Putra Mosque is located near the lake. It will be good experience to see architectural diversification of the building in Putrajaya.

Great Place to Visit if you're into architecture Sep 22, 2010
If you've got a couple of days in Kuala Lumpur, I would say, hop on the bus to Putrajaya, the administrative capitol of Malaysia. The architecture is amazing and very different from what you see in the city center. Great for photography. You'll learn that each building and structure is inspired by the various Malaysian elements.

Putrajaya had lots of big building. However it was more like a ghost town as not many people are living there. It was mainly government administrative center with lots of nice artistic buildings and scenery. That's all.

Well it is a place people like to go for wedding photography.

Putrajaya is the new capital of Malaysia, as far as politics go; it's also where the Putra Mosque is located.

Putrajaya is located about 40 minutes outside of Kuala Lumpur, near to the airport. You can get here via public transport, or hire a driver for the day. We hired a driver for our afternoon journey, and were very glad we did, because we wanted to look around, and take pictures from many different locations, and we really needed the car. I recommend hiring a driver.

These buildings will take your breath away. The Prime Ministers Office is stunning. His home is also beautiful. There are other buildings as well that are very impressive, as well as some bridges and other architecture. Even the street lights are beautiful. But the mosque... it will blow you away.

If you are really lucky, or plan really well, you may manage to be there when the call to prayer to happening over the loudspeakers. It's an amazing experience in life.

Please, don't miss this experience. I hope you love it as much as I did.
