Putrajaya , Malaysia’s federal administrative capital, is a modern planned city with construction having started in only the late 1990s and no expense has been spared in creating a world class modern living and working environment. It might not be the most exciting city on the planet but it sure is pretty. About 38% of the city’s 4900 hectare area has been set aside as green areas and indeed its parks are, in my opinion, the top Putrajaya attractions. A central feature to the city is a man-made 650 hectare lake whose tentacles extend into wetland zones, boating and water sports areas. The lake is designed to cool down the city as well as help with flood control and water purification.
