    Quiet peaceful Resort

    by

    This is my second time checking in Pullman. The last time was for our company team building. I booked Pullman again as I thought its on the lake overlooking the Millennium Monument where the 6th Putrajaya Hot Air Balloon was being held. But what I failed to check was that the lake was large more like a large river and the Monument was on the other side of the lake. But its OK.
    The hotel is really peaceful for those that want to relax. For those that are in need of activities avoid this place.
    We arrive quite late so we just lazed around. We had the room on the Jasmine Wing which ha an Indian Theme. The room was decorated to suit the theme. Had dinner in their all day dining restaurant which was reasonably priced and fast.
    As the bed was comfortable and aircon was great we woke up late the next day, that we missed the morning flight session of the Hot Air Balloon

    Unique Quality: The Pullman Lakeside is a quiet and peaceful hotel. Its a great place for Relaxation. The services was also very good especially from the Front Desk who went out of their way to help. Even leaving the counter to open doors and help with baggages. Housekeeping services was good too. I ordered a baby cot and got it a few minutes later with a followup call to inquire whether we got our baby cot.

    Directions: Look for the Putrajaya International Convention Centre

The Garden City of Malaysia

by Chuckaziz

"The Federal Territory of Putrajaya"

1. How It Began

Kuala Lumpur was bursting at the seams when the Federal Government decided to look for a new Administrative Centre to house all the Ministries and Departments. Various sites were identified but in June 1993 Prang Besar district of Selangor state was choosen. Moving the national administrative machinery from Kuala Lumpur is to allow the Government to operate under one roof and therefore improve the public delivery system.

The 'push factor' behind the idea is the former Prime Minister, Tun Mahathir Mohammed. Putrajaya is designed to provide a comfortable and quality lifestyle for its residents. The entire concept is based on sustainable development and liveable environment with greenery, botanical gardens and parks spread across the landscapes. The large bodies of water and wetlands are designed to complement that balance. Residential areas are supported by commercial hubs and public amenities to provide a liveable environment. The project was launched in October 1995 and named Putrajaya after Malaysia's first prime minister, YTM Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj. Putrajaya is one of the two "intelligent" cities under the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) project, the other being Cyberjaya which is just west of the township. Officially, the project was completed and handed over to the Federal Government in 1999 by the master developer, Putrajaya Holdings. From drawing board to construction, the place was transformed from an oil palm plantation to a modern and well planned city in just three years

2. Quick Facts:

1. Land area: 4,931 hectares (one third the size of KL).

2. The area is divided into 20 precincts.

3. Population is about 75,000.

4. The KLIA Transit is the fastest mode of transport between KL/Putrajaya and KLIA/Putrajaya.

5. Maju Expressway (MEX) is the dedicated highway linking Putrajaya and KL (travel time is about 35 minutes).

6. Other major highways are the North-South Expressway, ELITE Highway and Kajang Silk Expressway.

7. KL is 42km to the North

8. KLIA/LCCT is 26km to the South

9. Two major hotels are the Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside at Precinct 5 and Putrajaya Shangri-La at Precinct 1.

10. Main attractions are the Wetlands, Bridges of different design and the Lake.

I hope the brief introduction of Putrajaya will be of help when you are planning your visit to Malaysia. Of course, this virtual visit is noting like being here yourself. So, put Putrajaya in your itinerary when you are visiting the Klang Valley. Below are the short write-ups on the Putrajaya Wetlands and Lake that I put together for your reading pleasure:

"The Putrajaya Wetlands"

The wetland and the surrounding parkland play an important role in the natural control of siltation, pollution and the ecological system of the lake. The wetland is able to filter water naturally before being discharged into the lake. Thus, the water quality of the Putrajaya lake allows for body contact sports such as kayaking and canoeing.

There are several facilities at the wetland such as a Nature Interpretation Centre, a Look-out Tower and jungle tracks. The Look-out Tower which is about 18 meters in height is the landmark of the wetlands. Visitors can spend many hours enjoying the panoramic views of the Wetlands.

"The Putrajaya Lake"

The lake is designed to be a water catchment area for Putrajaya. It is now home for many species of birds. Some are migratory.

The lake too provides habitats for various aquatic and fauna which attracts migratory birds to the area. Some of the species of birds that could be found here include the Pink-backed pelican and the white pelican from Africa, the Canadian goose from North America, Canada through Alaska and on the eastern shores of Siberia, the Egyptian goose found in Nile Valley and along East and South Mediterranean and the Black swan normally found in New Zealand and Australia.

Please follow this trail for more on Putrajaya Wetlands and Parkland.

How far is Putrajaya Shangri-La from Mines Wonderland?

by VidER

Hi All,

I will be staying in the Shangri-La Putrajaya this summer.

And I wanted to ask, how many minutes by car will it take me to get into Mines Wonderland from there?

And also, what are other attractions, shopping centers that are close to my hotel?

Thanks.

Re: How far is Putrajaya Shangri-La from Mines Wonderland?

by CoconutTraveler

Mines Wonderland will be reachable around 30 minutes from Putrajaya.

Putrajaya is well known for the government new buildings there. There is only one shopping centre that is Putrajaya Alamandra.
You can visit the mosque in Putrajaya. You can also travel around Putrajaya for the nice building and scenery. A great place for photographer.

The crowd frequenting Dataran Putra (Putra Square) and Selera Putra (eateries) located across the lake are often caught gaping at it in sheer fascination. A huge grey mansion in a distance across the Putrajaya Lake often attracts attention.
