Gaya Travel finds that staycationing in Putrajaya after a busy work week is always a good idea…

Did you know that Putrajaya, the Malaysian government’s federal administration centre, is increasingly becoming popular among travellers who want to ‘heal’ from stress and the humdrum of day-to-day life? 

Putrajaya is accessible from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley region, Malaysia’s main economic hub via roads and rails. The opening of the second mass rapid transit (MRT) line in March 2023, on top of the already existing connectivity like the KLIA Transit, makes it easier for the public to reach Putrajaya using public transport.

Since getting to Putrajaya has now become increasingly easier, why not head to this destination for your next escape? The following are several staycation ideas in Putrajaya that can help you to ‘heal’:
