CRUISE PUTRAJAYA LAKE

Visitors can take a leisurely cruise on the lake to see and marvel at the many stunning landmarks and views of the city on two different modes of transportation; the luxury catamaran-hull cruise boats and Perahu Dondang Sayang or gondola-like vessels, designed in the style of a traditional Malay boat. The open-air perahu comes in two unique designs, Payang and Kolek, both seats up to six passengers. The Perahu Dondang Sayang is operated by a single boatman and passengers are entertained by traditional Malay songs and music while enjoying the ride.
