Vine garden
It is located at Precinct 1, Putrajaya, along Persiaran Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah.

The park is established on 230 acres of what was formerly agricultural land and home to more than 700 species of plant life (although we did not see that much) from over 90 tropical countries in South America, Africa and Asia Pacific region. It is divided into four main zones - the Explorer's Trail, Palm Hill, Floral Gardens and Lakeside. Each zone is again separated into different collections.

The park is open daily from 9am - 7 pm. The admission is free but the entry fee to interactive exhibition is RM 2 (which opened on Tuesday to Sunday from 10am - 6pm). I personally recommend you to go on morning as it is easier to get a bicycle if you are interested in cycling and it is hotter in the evening.


Getting There:

By Bus
From Sinar Kota in Kuala Lumpur, you can catch the Park May (Cityliner) bus number 868 to Putrajaya. This bus service operates from 6.30am until 10pm and the fare is about RM2.60. From the temporary bus and taxi terminal at Precinct 9, you can catch a Nadi Putra bus to the Botanical Garden (Taman Botani).

By Rail
You can get to Putrajaya via the KLIA transit train which departs from Kuala Lumpur's Sentral Station. The train runs every 30 minutes from 5.30am to 1am the next morning, and stops at the Western Transportation Terminal in Precinct 7. From there, you can catch a Nadi Putra bus service to the Botanical Garden (Taman Botani).

In general, here is a great place to get some fresh air and release your stress after a week of work. But do not put on high expectation as you will not see as much species of flora as this park claimed and i hardly feel the different between the region if it was not mentioned. Besides there are only a few bicycles available in the park (appro. 20).
