    When you visit KL, don't lose Putrajaya and specially the boat cruise. With many modern buildings and great artitechture, Putrajaya depicts the way of the development in Malaysia.
    The great mosque is really a must visit case in Putrajaya. Note that non-muslims can't enter the indoor part of the mosque and all women should wear the special dress to cover their bodies and hair. The dress is provided at the entrance of the mosque.

    Because of kindness we were fortunate meeting Chuck another VT member who put so much time showing us many interesting places in Kuala Lumpur. He took us to Putrajaya. We learned from him that it's area covers a little over 4,930 hectores. Also that this Putrajaya happens to be the newest or if not the latest of Federal Territory of Malaysia which is besides Kuala Lumpur as well as Labuan.

    Many locals says that the place was chosen because it is between KL Airport and KL, both locations had an almost same distance from Putrajaya.

    When visiting Putrajaya we would suggest that you come first thing in the morning, that way you can really relish the large area of Putrajaya. Below attached are photos of our great VT friend "CHUCK"!

    I am not sure about Cameron Highland if you want to travel 1 day trip as i dont visit that place yet.
    But I did my own trip to Melaka 1 day. I took bus from Pudu Raya Bus Station early morning (around 7 AM). Using Transnasional bus. Plenty busses go to Melaka. I bought bus ticket to return back to KL for my trip evening time. It was fun get around Melaka town by three wheel cab. The driver will take to some interesting places and also some local foods.
    The other place that worth to visit for 1 day is Putrajaya. The lake, the bulding, park, bridge are very impressive. It is not far from Kuala Lumpur.

    Go to Malaka n Putrajaya

    by putri_jogja Written Jan 11, 2010

    Hi,
    Going to Malaka from Kuala Lumpur, you can take bus from Pudu Raya Bus Station. There many bus go to Malaka. I choosed Transnational Bus. At tht time (3 years back) they charged less than 10 MYR.
    The journey will take 2,5 hours.
    For Putrajaya, i dont know abt the bus to go there. I ever saw it but i didnt notice.
    Or you can take train to Putrajaya, and then take bus from there to go to Putrajaya complex. It is very near.

    A man made city

    by BeeTea Written Jul 7, 2006
    artificial lake

    We had only 4 hours transit in KL airport before our next flight, we're lucky when a sister of my friend picked us up at the airport and took us around to Putrajaya.
    It took no more than 30 minutes via highway to get there.

    It was so stunning, really a masterpiece of planding and developing a city. Row of buildings, artificial lake and bridges makes a picturesque view.
    All is so manage, clean, quiet, no traffic at all even on mid day, I feel it's too perfect, so I think this city needs a litle 'human touch'.
    (this reminds me of some Hollywood movies about 'a too perfect city' and the people turned out to be robot :-)).
    We had lunch and get back to airport.

    Putra Mosque

    Putra Mosque

    You'll never miss this building when you're in Putrajaya. The architecture of this pink dome mosque mostly from Arabian and Mid Western County.
    The main entrance to the mosque is patterned after the gates of Persia.
    Next to the mosque is a food court, where we can enjoy the view of the city.

    We arrived late to the Sentral Station to take the train to Putrajaya with a package promotion, the ticket and a tourism tour to the city, (You have to arrive before 11 a.m., but I’m not sure if this package is every day or not) so we took the train (15 RM return), and arrived to the station which seemed to be a bus terminal, so we asked for a tour but wasn’t any, then we took a bus for a little ride around the city. Beautiful city, very modern buildings, bridges, streets, posts, lamps, a beautiful lake and gardens throughout the city. There is not traffic, no commercial city, didn’t see any store or restaurant or bar or hardware store, nothing, just buildings, public offices, ah!, and a shopping mall called Alamanda with a Carrefour inside and some good stores and a food court mostly with local food, but seemed good and well presented.

    Build it and they will come.......

    by kphstar Written Jan 19, 2005

    And built it they have. This whole township built by the Malaysian Government for the Malaysian Government and their employees and family is an outstanding example of town planning. I've had the chance to see it evove over the past several years to how it is today. but the thing is that they are still building and improving.

    It's great just to take that 50 minute drive or a 20 minute train ride out of KL to see this place. It's simply an attraction for it beautiful blend of old and new style architecture.

    Politics and Religion

    Here is the Mosque that stand tall in from of Parliment house. Pretty much like how religion is preceived in Malaysia - Islam comes first.

    Anyway, compared to most of the other is KL, this is massive. Only yhe Mosque in Shah Alam can rival it's size and beauty.

    Pretty in Pink

    The Putraraja Mosque is 25 km from KL.
    Women have to wear a robe & headcovering (that is provided).
    You are allowed to take pictures inside.
    After you exit the mosque, go outside & down the stairs to the shopping centre. There is a food court & name brand shops down there.
