Take in the sights of Putrajaya on a leisurely lake cruise in air-conditioned comfort, allowing you to enjoy the Intelligent Garden City from a unique perspective. Putrajaya was named after Malaysia’s first Prime Minister—the late Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj. This outstanding precinct spans 11,320 acres comprising 13 different gardens, with more than 70% of its area devoted to greenery and water. The principle landscape feature is the Putrajaya Wetland—a man-made lake. More than 50 local species of native wetland plants were cultivated in the 17-acre Putrajaya Wetland Nursery prior to planting in the wetland cells.
A city highlights drive will stop at Perdana Putra (the Prime Minister’s Office Complex) and the Putra Mosque, which incorporates Islamic architecture from Turkestan, Kazakhstan and Morocco. Other sights include the Palace of Justice and the 1,200-foot-long Seri Wawasan Bridge—a futuristic cable-stay bridge built across Putrajaya Lake and Putra Square.
Please note: Approximately 20 minutes of walking is required over relatively flat paved surfaces. There are approximately 60 steps to access the boat jetty area. Wear comfortable walking shoes; bring insect repellent.
