Tropical climate allows abundance of flora and fauna to be found in every corner of Malaysia all year round. There are many gardens and parks all over the country, to suit the tastes of the locals and foreigners.

I visited Putrajaya Botanical Garden for the first time just recently and was impressed with the carefully-manicured landscape and the views that come with it.

The Garden was filled with many species of plants which some I have never seen or heard before. The top of the hill provides a breathtaking view.

There were Bougainvillea Tunnel, African Collection and Palm Hill which I discovered at the Garden.

Facilities such as bicycle rental, tram services, parking spaces, information service and restrooms are provided. Overall, the Garden seems to be well-kept. It’s good for sight-seeing and relaxing.

Visitors can also sit down by the lakeside to unwind and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

By the way, the Moroccan Pavilion is a distinctive feature the Garden offers to its visitors. I was able to snap a couple of pictures of the Pavilion that has amazing architecture and décor.

Below are some photos from my visit. The original album is located here.

You can find further information about the Garden at Putrajaya’s portal.

So, if you get to Putrajaya Botanical Garden, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
