How far is Putrajaya from KL?

by cruelsan Online Now Mar 11, 2008 at 7:42 PM

Hi!

How far is Putrajaya from KL? Am keen about squeezing the Putrajaya Lake Cruise in our itinerary. But we're also going to Genting. What is the best way to go (e.g. Genting-Putrajaya-Batu Caves-KL)?

Thanks,
San

    If you are driving and taking the new highway it is about 1 hour from KL.

    The best way to go is (Genting - Batu Caves - KL - Putrajaya) or (Genting - Batu Caves - Putrajaya - KL). I am not sure how many days will you stopover KL and Putrajay so either way also can.

    If you come down from Genting, you can drive straight to Batu Caves it is just about 3KM or less from the toll.

    enjoy your trip...

    Thanks Teresa. We'll actually spend the night before in Genting, check out at 12nn then head off to KL. Then maybe Batu Caves and Putrajaya the next day - that's the original plan, but I was told that we will maximize our time more if we pass by Batu Caves or Putrajaya on our way to KL. Would you know if there's a transport from Genting that would take us to Batu Caves? How many hours would one normally spend in Batu?

    Hi!

    Both places abt 30-45mins drive from KL.

    Putrajaya is sandwhiched btw KL city and the airport (south of KL) while Batu Caves is sandwhiched btw KL city and Genting (north of KL). Its better if you go to Batu Caves en route to/from Genting and Putrajaya en route to/from the airport thus you not moving back and forth to the city.

    Oh...thans Onion! Looks like there's no problem going to Batu Caves then. :) What time is the best time to go there? How many hours would one normally spend there?

    Avoid going to Batu Caves at midday, better if you can go in the morning or late afternoon. If you don't plan to climb the 272 steps leading to the cave, 1 hour should be more then enough just to look around at Batu Caves.

    Traffic should be smoother on weekend. Not sure abt the batik factory but accross the highway frm Batu Caves there is an industrial area - busload of tourists normally go there for some shopping (chocolates, perfume, wathces etc).
