Putrajaya Secret Garden


Putrajaya isn’t all office buildings and grand avenues. It may be Malaysia’s federal administrative centre, but there are countless fun attractions hiding out in the city – including a glittering new attraction dubbed Putrajaya Secret Garden. This new attraction, located across Pulse Grande Hotel, will leave visitors in awe with the spectacle of beautiful neon lights draped and wrapped around trees in a park – just like in the blockbuster film, Avatar.

With how mesmerising the sight is, locals have been comparing it to the world of Pandora from Avatar – for good reason, as the park looks right out of a scene from the movie.

Putrajaya may have been voted the least romantic state in Malaysia back in 2020, but visitors can expect to spend a memorable date night strolling through the illuminated garden with their SO.

While you’re there to take in the tantalising sights and light displays, do be sure to take a ton of pictures as well.

Besides the neon-lit trees that simulate bioluminescent colours, watch as the entire garden comes alive at night, emanating vibrant colours and dazzling glows – as if the stars have somehow found their way down to earth. There are various photo spots too, including gleaming sculptures in the shape of dinosaurs that you and your kiddos will want to check out.
