Walking & Snapping Trip in Putrajaya, Malaysia

Putrajaya is the federal administrative centre of Malaysia. Since its open to public on 1999, this well-planned intelligent city had drew a lot of visitors to fascinate the beauty of mix Islamic, Palladian & Neoclassicism architecture and the green landscape around this township.

My last walking trip with a travel mate was very "brain boiling". But, the 35°C of weather didn't stop our plan to explore and snap photos for sharing with our Microscopasia readers. 

With Putrajaya map in hand, we took a bus from KL city by RapidKL to Putrajaya Sentral and changed to Bus L04 to Seri Wawasan Bridge in Precinct 2, Putrajaya (RM1.00)

From Seri Wawasan Bridge, we turn to the left side of Persiaran Perdana heading to Perdana Putra Complex, the Prime Minister office. Your walk will pass go through the Putra Bridge which will connect you to the iconic Putra Mosque and the PM's office which is located opposite to Putra Square. You also can find Putrajaya Information Centre at the roundabout of the Putra Square. You can get Putrajaya map, Putrajaya Shuttle Tour pickup and souvenirs.

Arrived to Putrajaya Mosque, and you feel hungry, Selera Putra is the only food court to feed your stomach. There are mix of Indian Muslim foods, western foods, dessert, cool drink and Chinese food. Maybe the price is a bit pricey. But due to this is the only place for food and the nearest to the main tourist attraction in Putrajaya, we have no choice.

My lunch, deep fried chicken, cabbage and rice, RM8.00
After lunch, we go for more photo snapping around Putra Mosque and PM's office, we continue our journey back to Persiaran Perdana to explore the architecture wonder along the street. Most of the buildings are government building comprised of government's departments and ministries.

Among stunning building is The Finance Department, The Palace of Justice, Steel Mosque and the Perbadanan Government Complex. I will personally call this Putrajaya as "Malaysia version of Dubai" because of the Islamic and modern outlook of those building, plus the hot weather. 

Here are some of the stunning achitectures that you will see while tracking the Persiaran Perdana from the PM's office at Precinct 1 to Precinct 2. We stop at Palace of Justice and scrapped our plan to Putrajaya International Convention Centre due to extremely hot weather and we choose to rest and relax on the grass opposite the Youth & Sport Ministry buidling before taking bus at opposite street back to Putrajaya Sentral to go home.

Last but not least, you might need to know some information about Nadi Putra, the only bus to transit you around the Putrajaya area. Click Nadi Putra for more details about the bus services.

Thanks for my bestie, Christopher for his willingness to walk with me under the heaty day during this Putrajaya tracking.
