Putrajaya is the new administrative centre of the malaysian governament, taking the capital city away from Kuala Lumpur , leaving Kuala Lumpur as the country's financial and commercial capital. Moving the national administrative machinery from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya is in line with the Government's policy to provide a more balanced development away from Kuala Lumpur. It is a decision motivated by life in Kuala Lumpur and ensure continued growth in the Klang Valley.
Putrajaya is open to the public from 9a.m. to 5 p.m. daily including Sundays. You cannot miss Masjid Putra (Putra Mosque), Dataran Putra (with a view of the new Prime Minister's Department), and the new Seri Perdana (Prime Minister's official residence).
The most beautiful side of this area is the space, it's wide, opened and so you really feel away from the high bulidling prison of KL.The view of the Mosque on the river is simply amazing!
It is about 1 hour from the city centre.
Night time is when you can actually see the great view of Putrajaya where its litted with lights and also some amazing breath taking sight. But bare in mind go with friends who actually do have transportation and get lost there... no problem at all..
Make sure you go around the bridges in Putrajaya at night. It's amazing architecture is to die for and will left ya wondering how on earth they joined it together. Also check out the bulding like the Palace of Justice and also few others.
Oh yeah for those of you who just love snapping photos... its heaven on earth
p.s: be there before 12 midnight cause if you go after that, too bad u cant go in anymore and hafta wait till the next day.
We visited Putrajaya, the new city. We were impressed with many of the buildings structure. The interesting architecture of the mosque's which has strong Persian and even Turkish influence. The interesting design of the bridge's. The city has modern outlook.
When we were there the scenery is a bit sterile because I think it's still new, the trees is not fully grown, perhaps in ten years time it will look more natural.
The boat cruise (Cruise Tasik) on man made lake is a must.
I always heard of Putrajaya and about the beautiful bridges and buildings it had of Parliment. Anyway I set out to the see the place so I jumped the train to go and check it out. Anyway when I left the train station I jumped a bus to Putrajaya. To my suprise I found that Putrajaya is Huge and that everything is far from each other. I managed to get off at a point and walked on this bridge whereby I could see the Perdana Putra which is the office of the Prime Minister and the Putra Mosque which is absolutely beautiful. I happend to see only one of the Putra brigdes but the other one was far away. Anyway Putrajaya is a very beautiful and very clean place and a great place if you wanna do some relaxing shopping. So if you wanna go there by train do so but don`t take a bus from the station just take a cab from there to show you around.

Should be worth a visit - it's ultra modern city -- the new administrative centre of Malaysia. Many people can't seem to leave Kuala Lumpur for this new place though, and so K Lumpur is still the place to be !
It's around 20 kilometer from KL. Putrajaya is a new government areas where most of government service departments are found here. It's also a really nice area, very neat and tidy site. These days, Putrajaya is also one of the tourists visited area.
This is probably the nicest district/zone i've ever seen in the whole of malaysia all my life.The roads are well paved, the streets are totally clean, the lamp posts are all working and everything is beautiful here.
The sight of the beautiful and majestic mosque as well as the govt buildings make the place a trip worth going. It is most important to go there during daytime and esp when it's hot and sunny so as to admire the full scenic view of the place with its magnificent buildings surrounding the area
Putrajaya, covering an area of 4,931 hectares of land, is situated 25 kilometres from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur in the north and 20 kilometres from Kuala Lumpur International Airport(KLIA) at Sepang in the south.
This is another thing that I wanted to do as I had heard from my vt friends that the bridges in Putrajaya are stunning especially at night, so this is on our must see list for next visit. Our driver took is for a driving tour of Putrajaya on the way to the airport. I'm glad he did because we could see what wonderful stuff that we missed out on in order to build our appetite for next visit to KL.
As Richard explained, Putrajaya is where the Government buildings are and Government staff are housed, just like Canberra in Australia. It is a separate Federal Territory just like Canberra. In fact a lot of things there reminded me of Canberra like big wide clean streets with nice plants and lovely lake that I believe is man made. The only difference was the couple of nice bridges that I spotted and these are on my must see list to come again and take photos in the night.
