Amazing Tourism Malaysia . Tourism Putrajaya

Putrajaya Lake, PutrajayaPutrajaya, 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.

The planning of Putrajaya emphasises the preservation of its eco-system while promoting an active, lively and caring society. The city is designed to provide opportunity for retreat from the pressures and stress of modern living.

Putrajaya is a planned city being built according to a series of comprehensive policies and guidelines for land use, transportation system, utilities, infrastructure, housing, public amenities, information technology, parks and gardens.Its beautifully landscaped roads and parks as well as modern buildings are clearly reflected in the duality of the project theme “Garden City, Intelligent City”.

The vision to have a new Federal Government Administrative Centre to replace Kuala Lumpur surfaced in late 1980s. A 4,932-hectare lush forest area in southern Prang Besar in Selangor was identified and later renamed “Putrajaya” in honour of Malaysia’s first Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj for his invaluable contribution to the nation. The relocation is to ensure that Kuala Lumpur will have adequate supply of land to continue developing as Malaysia's principal business and financial centre.
