Tourists take in Putrajaya’s beauty

THOUSANDS of Malaysian and foreign tourists took advantage of the long Chinese New Year break to head to Putrajaya, the administrative capital, not just for sightseeing alone but also for family picnics at the Persiaran Perdana (Boulevard) area.

The scene at Putrajaya was a far cry from the streets of Kuala Lumpur where it was unusually quiet on the first and second day of the Lunar New Year.

Breathtaking: Fine weather and the long break draw domestic and foreign tourists to Putrajaya.

Over at Putrajaya, those on their first visit were simply mesmerised by the breathtaking view of the scenic bridges and for Singaporeans Rajesh Nair, Veer Desai and their spouses Neeta and Poornima, it is comparable to some Australian cities.

Lights, camera, action! Even moviemakers take advantage of scenic Putrajaya.
“We were on our way to Genting Highlands and decided to make a brief stop at Putrajaya after we were told about this beautiful place.

“Not only is it clean, it is so different from the other tourist areas we have visited here. The architecture is something else,” said Neeta.

Throughout both days, there was a continuous stream of buses making their way to drop off passengers in front of the Putra mosque, which, according to a tourist guide, “is a must-see.’’

The other places of interest which tourists took advantage of were the only shopping complex in the capital - Putrajaya Alamanda - and the Souq, where an array of Malaysian dishes was on display.
