Day trip Putrajaya botanical garden and Wetland recreation park

Day trip to putrajaya parks was not a bad idea for a short getaway from the daily work desk. This is my first visiting Putrajaya parks which normally skipped. We begin our journey from Kuala Lumpur at about noon, getting there is pretty straight forward, our first stop is the Botanical garden.

There's bike rental available if you wish to ride around the garden which will be a great idea, we didn't rent a bike because we couldn't locate the office, only found out after we've completed our 'jogs' round the park.

If you (like us) use the entrance and the first thing you see is the Moroccan Pavilion, then you'd probably will skipped the office.

Botanical garden is a man made garden surrounded with different of species, with each different themes with different flowers from around the world, it is a well-maintained garden and it's really beautiful.

Just about right next to the 'sun garden' there's a slope perfect for photo.

The lake boardwalk seems to be popular for bike riders, with alot of shading from trees, it also seems to be the best spot for young couple to hangout.

Before exiting the garden, we made our last stop at the Moroccan Pavilion, skipped it at the beginning because there's too many people.
