PUTRAJAYA (30 km away)
Putrajaya , Malaysia’s federal administrative capital, is a modern planned city with construction having started in only the late 1990s and no expense has been spared in creating a world class modern living and working environment.

A central feature to the city is a man-made 650 hectare lake whose tentacles extend into wetland zones, boating and water sports areas. The lake is designed to cool down the city as well as help with flood control and water purification.

Spanning these stretches of water are some spectacular bridges which are illuminated with changing coloured lights at night.

Add to this a number of grand Government buildings, mosques, palaces and monuments and you have a visually appealing cityscape.
