Taman Botani, Putrajaya, Malaysia

1

If you love cycling and at the same time, enjoying a beautiful view filled with flowers, Taman Botani is just the place for you to escape from the hectic city of Kuala Lumpur. It is a place where you can release some of your work tension here.

Taman Botani Putrajaya is the biggest botanical garden in Malaysia and is located in Precinct 1, Putrajaya. This area is 25km away from Kuala Lumpur and if you intend to come by bus, take the Cityliner Bus 868 from Sinar Kota, Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya. From the bus terminal in Putrajaya, take a Nadi Putra Bus here. If you come by train, use the ERL KLIA Transit Train that departs from KL Sentral or KLIA. At the Western Transportation Terminal in Putrajaya, take the Nadi Putra bus and you will arrive here.

The garden is divided into 5 different themes. They are: the Explorer’s Trail, Palm Hill, Floral Gardens, Sun Garden and the Lakeside. There is a Visitors’ Interpretative Centre (VIC), Explorer’s Trail, Palm Hill, Sun and Floral Gardens for visitors wishing to experience more from the Botanical Garden.

What I like about Taman Botani is you can rent a bike and ride it with your loved ones, a little of advice here, please bring your isotonic drink. It’s really tiring, however, you will reward yourself with an amazing view when you reach the top of the hills.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
