We had a great time, however I would recommend going there earlier though. It was quite exhausting cycling in the scorching heat, as shady trees are scarce. The cycle around the lake was calming and a good way to invigorate our body and mind. All the hard work riding up the hill paid off, the wind hitting my body and face as the bike goes downhill freely was the best part.

2. Walk Mindfully in Nature
Taking a nature walk, listening to the sound, breathing in the fresh air, smelling the flowers as well as the surprises along the way are such blessing and bliss.

Things to do at the well-kept Wetland Park; Flamingo Pond, Look-out tower, tram ride, etc.
3. Savour Delicious Food Overlooking the Lake View
We decided to Shell Out for the sake of trying it for the first time. If you go for the seafood combo, a variety of seafood will be cooked together in the cooking style you pick; lemon pepper, butter garlic, black pepper, or curry. The combo of crabs, prawns, lala, potatoes, broccoli, corn, etc. immersed in butter garlic sauce that we ordered was dumped on a huge piece of grease/ water-proof paper, waiting to be devoured. The dish was extremely flavorful, though it taste over-salted – So good to eat with rice. Be attentive when you savour every bite as you look out the window to a spectacular lakeside view. Putrajaya is surrounded by lakes, big and small.

Drop by IOI City Mall
IOI City Mall has recently introduced the automated License Plate Recognition (LPR) system for its car park. The system allows shoppers to drive into the parking without the issuance of printed parking tickets; as it will capture vehicle plate numbers using the LPR camera installed at the parking entry and exit points. Payment can be made via kiosks, app or simply flashing your Touch n’ Go card on the way out.
It has everything any mega malls in Malaysia would have, I think, which we we have endless supply of. On a serious note, this is one of the most well-designed malls I have visited. I particularly love the toilets, breastfeeding cubicles are available for nursing moms, the taps have auto sensor, there’s sanitizer dispenser and toilet paper in each cubicle, the list goes on. The mall is very spacious, parking bays, food choices aplenty.
The largest mall in Southern Klang Valley, is home to an Olympic-sized ice-skating rink – “Icescape” and a 70,000 sq. ft. adventure park – “District 21”. Its car park of 7,605 bays is the first in Malaysia to be equipped with a car finder system that gives customers a sense of security and a hassle-free experience in locating their parked vehicles. Meanwhile, along The Symphony Walk, you may indulge in a myriad of cuisines amidst an ambience of tranquility and lush landscape.
