- is a planned city, 25km south of Kuala Lumpur, that serves as the federal administrative centre of Malaysia. As there is severe overcrowding downtown, the concept of Putrajaya as a garden and intelligent city was conceived. At least 38% of the area was reserved for green spaces whilst preserving its natural landscapes. Construction began in August 1995 and it was Malaysia's biggest project and one of Southeast Asia's largest with estimated final cost of US$ 8.1 billion.
As it is still less populous with little traffic, it is a cycling haven and has been heavily promoted amongst local cyclists. They actually had cycling in mind-hence there are loads of paved cycling routes.
