During 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.

Overall, this event is also a great fun activity for children and kids, where you can start to teach them about the beautiful flora.

Since I have been traveling much around Malaysia, I have also visited many other gardens and park reserves, namely in Sabah and Sarawak.

You can also read my other article about the Rainforest Discovery Center or RDC in Sabah Borneo, which is one of the best places for the Bornean flora.
