Last weekend, friends from SG and Dubai were in town for a very short visit. We went to a sight seeing trip to Putrajaya. Putrajaya sits on a magnificent 4,931 hectares of land within the Multimedia Super Corridor. It is located 25km south of Kuala Lumpur and 20km north of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Being served by a network of highways, it is highly accessible from all parts of the country. It’s a 30 minutes drive from KL by a private car, and will take 45 minutes to 1 hour if you take bus from KL.
As we go and explore the place, I have noticed that putrajaya is a distinctive place, having a mixed of Islamic, modern classical architecture and a slight of a gothic architecture. But being a Muslim country in Asia, the Islamic architecture was very distinctive through out the place.
The traffic free city has lush greenery; botanical gardens are spread across the landscape enhanced by large bodies of water and wetlands making the area a very good site for landscape photography.
