Putrajaya is a model township that has been constructed with detailed planning, innovative urban design and great respect for the environment. It is a city with a vision that also promises to keep the nation’s heritage for the country’s present and future generations.

Putrajaya, Malaysia – We started our tour a little late after lunch to keep out of the harmful midday sun. The sun sets late in Malaysia (it stays light up until about 7pm) thus taking late afternoon tours are no problem.
Since we took the tour via car and it’s our first driving experience around the city, we brought a map (paper map) from Putrajaya Tourism Office, even if we have smartphones for GPS. We don’t want to be stranded in the middle of the highway (talk about slow connection to Google Maps). 🙂
Our first stop was the famous Seri Wawasan Bridge. This is one of the eight signature bridges connecting Putrajaya precincts, a must see at night as they are illuminated with changing colored lights. We arrived there in the afternoon so there are no lights yet so we weren’t able to appreciate its marvel to the fullest. Not to take anything away from it though, because it still looks amazing. From there you can see a view of the lake and the city. After a couple of pictures we continued driving.
Putrajaya, Malaysia – Art – based on things I’ve seen – involving politics mostly come off as subversive, if not satirical. There seems to be a thin line between its beauty and the government. A few, however, manage to make the best out of both worlds. Putrajaya is among those. We all know that traveling and doing crazy stuff goes hand in hand, but then again in this place, you’re right under the authority’s nose.
We started off with the idea of wanting to have a road trip in Malaysia. But since it’s our first time driving here, we chose a place that are not too far from the city. It came down between Malacca and Putrajaya but going to Putrajaya is much easier (traffic and stuff) so that finalized our decision.
