In going to Putrajaya, we took the KLIA Express (RM9.50) from KL Sentral interchange. That was 20 minutes of traveling with only 2 stops huh! As we went out of the station, we looked for a bus at the terminal that can be found below the station. There were many buses with numbers on it. But we didn’t even know which one to take…. Until we hopped on a bus which was about to leave. After paying 50 sen (flat rate) for the ride, he then asked us where to go. I just told him to take us Seri Wawasan Bridge. Before we get-off the bus, he told us the bus numbers that we should take in going back to Putrajaya Sentral.
The scorching heat of the sun welcomed us as we disembarked the bus. After taking pictures of Seri Wawasan Bridge, one of the 8 unique bridges in Putrajaya, we decided to walk and check what we could find in Precint 1. The Putra Mosque and Perdana Putra can be seen from afar that’s why we tried to go there but failed to do so. Walking under the sun for around 15 minutes without umbrella would burn our skin and make us more dehydrated for we have no water with us. There were no other tourists in the place… we had seen workers busy doing repairs of the waterworks but other than those people, we didn’t see any. It took us an hour in the bus stop deciding whether to go back to Kuala Lumpur or take the bus going to other attractions in Putrajaya. The extreme heat of the sun (hotter than 12noon in Mla) helped us to make a good decision… go back to KL! We’ll visit Putrajaya next time and catch the sunset.
What to see in Precint 1 that can be walked around:
Taman Putra Perdana – recreational park with fountains, shelters, benches and a good view of Putrajaya
Putra Mosque – the pink mosque
Souq – bazaar that can be found at the lower level of Putra Mosque
