If you love all things floral, you should make a visit here as it is absolutely amazing. My last visit to the Putrajaya Floral Festival 2009, I saw some really unique vendors selling what I usually collect which are hard to find jungle plants and creepers. This is also a great fun activity for children/kids where you can start to teach them about the beautiful flora.
