Serene Stopovers in Putrajaya, Malaysia’s Garden City

Kuala Lumpur International Airport is one of Asia’s most important transport hubs, handling approximately 60 million passengers every year. If you’re transiting through Malaysia, the chances are you’ll be stopping at KLIA. But what if you have some time to spare between your flights? Instead of heading straight for the high-rise skyline of KL, try taking a step back and enjoying an altogether more peaceful stay in Putrajaya.

As Malaysia’s federal capital, this is an important Southeast Asian city. And yet, Putrajaya exudes a sense of tranquility that is rarely found in other national capitals. This makes it a wonderfully rewarding destination for a short stopover break, and travelers can spend their days soaking up the idyllic ambiance and discovering why Putrajaya is nicknamed the “Garden City”. Discover this unique destination from the newly-opened Park Inn by Radisson Putrajaya , a convenient location for both leisure and business travelers.


Soak in nature’s beauty

Start your day at the Putrajaya wetland; morning is the perfect time to spot and snap a variety of bird species including herons, egrets, cuckoos and kites. Nature lovers should also head to Putrajaya Botanical Garden, a vast 93-hectare tropical haven that contains more than 700 species of plant across five themed areas, including lakeside trails and canopy walks. Pure bliss!

Visit Malaysia’s political and heritage sites

Then in the afternoon, visitors can explore Malaysia’s political and religious heritage. Don’t miss the shimmering pink Putra Mosque, which seems to float on the surface of a lake, or the impressive and imposing Iron Mosque, a masterpiece of modern Islamic architecture. Then head to Perdana Putra – the vast governmental complex topped with a towering green dome.


Explore the city after dark

After dark is a wonderful time to see the spectacular Putra Bridge, which is illuminated by LED lights every night. This sets the scene for your evening in the Garden City, which can be spent strolling through the night market of Pasar Tani Putrajaya and savouring local specialties such as nasi lemak, redang and roti. Perfectly positioned between Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur, and just 20 minutes from KLIA, Park Inn by Radisson Putrajaya is the ideal place to stay in this vibrant region. For guests seeking a change from the fast pace of KL, Putrajaya offers a serene stopover option.
