Named after Malaysia’s first prime minister Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra, Putrajaya was built to avoid the national capital of Kuala Lumpur from being overcrowded. This third Federal Territory of the country was planned to be the federal administrative centre for Malaysia which was shifted in 1999. Putrajaya is most known as a part of the special economic zone of MSC Malaysia and has been growing ever since. Located 25 KM south of KL, Putrajaya Sentral Bus Terminal has been acting as the main transportation centre for travelling in and out of the territory. This bus station has been in operation since 2002 and proved to be great for the people around Putrajaya, Cyberjaya, Dengkil and Sepang.

There are 3 easy ways to get to the terminal with public transportation if you are in the city centre vicinity:
The quickest way to get to Putrajaya Sentral is by getting on a KLIA Transit from KL Sentral. This mode of transport will take you to the terminal in just 20 minutes. The train departs every 30 minutes from KL Sentral with the first train departing at 5:33 AM with the last one leaving at 12:03 AM. It will cost you RM14 per way and RM6.30 for children aged 2 to 12 years old.
On a budget? Taking the bus is your best option as it is RM4 per way. All you need to do is take the E1 bus from the back of Mydin supermarket at Jalan Tun Perak, which is located right opposite the enormous Menara Maybank that you would not miss. As with Kuala Lumpur traffic, travel time takes from 30 minutes to an hour, so it is best to plan ahead when you are leaving the city centre to Putrajaya Sentral Bus Terminal.
The other way is by taxi which should cost you less than RM50. If you are unsure, you can always purchase the coupon tickets that are available easily at KL Sentral as they are already fixed fares. If you decide to book a ride-sharing, it could cost you less and again, this really depends on the traffic and when you are getting them.
There have been many events held at Putrajaya from hot air balloon shows to air races. It is busier than it seems to most people. Here are just some of the reasons that you may not have thought of why you should take a trip down to Putrajaya.
Cruise down Tasik Perdana – This 650-hectare lake is meant to be a cooling system for the city, hence the cruise tours are very popular here at Tasik Perdana.
