Visit Putrajaya

With lush green spaces and sleek architecture, this ultra-modern metropolis is the epitome of an intelligent, garden city.

Putrajaya is the administrative capital of Malaysia and home to some of the country’s biggest businesses. Located 15 miles (25 kilometers) south of Kuala Lumpur, the city was designed to alleviate overcrowding in Malaysia’s official capital. Putrajaya translates as “Princes’ Success” and everything about this meticulously planned city, from the stunning modern architecture to the tranquil landscaped gardens, resonates with these high sentiments.

The best way to see the sights is to take a cruise on the Putrajaya River. As well as the mosque and the government complex, you’ll see the Istana Darul Ehsan, a royal palace. Back on dry land, make sure you walk down the Putrajaya Boulevard. This 330-foot (100-meter) wide, 2.5-mile (4-kilometer) long stretch of road hosts the spectacular National Day Parade on August 31 every year.

Explore the city and see what skilled town planners can achieve with a blank canvas. Marvel at the awe-inspiring Putra Mosque, one of the city’s main attractions. At 380 feet (116 meters), it is the tallest mosque in Southeast Asia. Adjacent to this is the impressive Perdana Putra complex, which houses the Malaysian federal government.

Putrajaya was designed as a garden city, so take time to explore the beautifully landscaped parks and green spaces. Near the government offices, Putra Perdana Park offers some of the best views of the city. To the northwest of this park is the Botanical Garden.

The fastest way to reach Putrajaya is by train from Kuala Lumpur, or you can take a bus. Once in the city, public transport options are more limited, so taxis or hired cars are the best ways to get around.

Accommodation in Putrajaya tends to be on the luxurious side. Treat yourself to a night in one of the city’s ultra-modern hotels. Otherwise, stay in Kuala Lumpur and take a day-trip to explore this exciting contemporary city.
