Photographer's Note

Aerial photo with the view to modern city of Putrajaya in Malaysia. I’ve captured this photo from Cathay Pacific Airbus 330 airplane on the way from Kuala Lumpur to Hong Kong last Wednesday.

In the photo you can see Putrajaya Lake Side, International Convention Centre-ICC (right side), Governmental Buildings-GB (left side) Seri Gemilang Bridge-SGB (connecting ICC with GB), small Sri Empangan Bridge (just behind SGB) and Putrajaya Eqestrian Park in background.

Putrajaya is an ultra-modern city which was carefully planned from its inception and is and built in a previously undeveloped area, around 40 km south of Kuala Lumpur and around 30 km north of KLIA.

Putrajaya serves as the federal administrative center of Malaysia. The seat of government was shifted in 1999 from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya, due to overcrowding and congestion in the Kuala Lumpur area. Nevertheless, Kuala Lumpur remains Malaysia's national capital, being the seat of the King and Parliament, as well as the country's commercial and financial center.

Putrajaya is easy accessible from Kuala Lumpur (KL) and Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) by several highways as well as Express Rail Link (ERL).
