I am back on the Segway. This time we’re not roaming around the Lake Gardens, instead we are off exploring Putrajaya with the fantastic team from EcoRide.
After my last Segway tour, I was so excited to be getting back on this machine. Since the tour in the Lake Gardens, I have told Hubby that I wanted to buy an InMotion machine because it was so much fun.
Hubby and I have explored Putrajaya on foot previously, and I must admit, it was exhausting. Putrajaya is a HUGE place, and especially in the afternoon, it can get quite hot. I even thought to myself how cool it would be to explore Putrajaya on a Segway. And so, when I heard EcoRide was offering a new Segway adventure in Putrajaya, I immediately got in contact and off we went on a tour.
The Segway Tour in Putrajaya
It was later in the afternoon and we met the team from EcoRide to hop onto the Segway. There were a few beginners, so Nickki and his team were busy showing them how to use the Segway.
It had been a few months for me, but I remembered Nickki’s wise words when I first learned – “just trust the machine.” And that I did, and within seconds I was zooming around the parking lot ready to explore.
Putrajaya is a well-planned city around 30 minutes’ drive from downtown Kuala Lumpur. It is the main federal administrative centre of Kuala Lumpur, where you’ll find all of Malaysia’s ministries here. Here you’ll find well-manicured gardens and impressive architecture, which makes Putrajaya worth visiting while in Kuala Lumpur. And in my opinion, the best way to explore Putrajaya is on a Segway.
We spent around 2 hours exploring on a Segway, and it was really the perfect way to see the place. Overall the paths were easy to ride on, so there was no hassle. There were some streets to cross, but it was simple as everyone seems to follow the road rules in Putrajaya. Plus it’s so much less hustle and bustle then the city of Kuala Lumpur…especially over the weekend.
The Segway itself is super lightweight and easy to maneouver, without much trouble doing turns and spins. The machine is set to a maximum speed of 12 km per hour, so ensure the safety of all guests.
Highlights of the Segway Tour
During the duration of the tour, we got to see so much of Putrajaya. Here are some of my favourite highlights of the trip:
- Millennium Monument
- Putra Mosque – it’s pink!
- Perdana Putra – the Office of the Prime Minister
- Ministry of Finance
- Palace of Justice
- The China-Malaysian Friendship Garden
- Various well-designed bridges
- Putrajaya Lake – it’s 650 hectares in size
I loved exploring Putrajaya on a Segway. It was such a fun way to explore this beautiful part of Kuala Lumpur.
If you are interested in booking your Segway tour, the tour is RM199 (A$62 | U$46) per person, and includes a minimum of 2 hours’ tour, and it includes English & Chinese speaking guide, and a pick up/drop off service to your hotel.
I recommend wearing comfortable shoes and clothing, and bring along a small lightweight carry bag, bottled water, and sunscreen.
