Romantic Hi-Tea, Cruise Tasik Putrajaya

Hi-Tea Cruise Tasik Putrajaya

It was a peaceful evening, the weather is not too hot nor is it too cold. It was perfect for an outing with a loved one, family or friends. So what would you do if you’re in Putrajaya on such a beautiful day? Romantic hi-tea Cruise Tasik Putrajaya does not sound like a very bad idea.

In fact, since the Picnic Boat (or better known as the Tubester) and the Perahu has just been introduced as part of the attractions at Cruise Tasik Putrajaya, it would be a terrific idea to spend your free time here and experience this new attraction yourself. That is, before the place gets more popular, attract more people from all over the country and you’ll be left out.

The Tubester (as pictured above) is a very cute, round-shaped picnic boat that can fit a maximum of 6 adults at one time.

Running on motor, you will need to pilot the Tubester yourself. However, don’t be alarmed, the motor can only go up to 20km/h. The shift to spin the Tubester to the right or to the left can be done easily and is very light. You can set out to the middle of the lake between the Cruise Tasik and the Seri Wawasan Bridge and let the water drift you slowly as you enjoy the scenery or chat with your company.

Would you like some food or drinks as you cruise in your Tubester and enjoy your hi-tea Cruise Tasik Putrajaya?

Actually, food and drinks are not included in the package. The food and drinks you see in my photos are actually self-prepared and brought to the cruise, along with the tablecloth. We had lots of fun eating Nasi Lemak, Mihun Goreng, Cupcakes and Traditional Kueh packed in the colorful tiffinayan. We drank, laughed, chit chat and took lots of photos in the Tubester. We also cleaned up after ourselves after the cruise and we DID NOT throw any rubbish or garbage into Putrajaya lake.

Please remember to clean up after yourself after your cruise session too.

Perahu Dondang Sayang

Apart from the Tubester, there’s also the Perahu (a traditional-shaped boat) called the Dondang Sayang.

Fitting 4 adults in the perahu, it has a curtained roof and a more luxurious and intimate feeling. There’s also a curtainless perahu that can fit 6 adults at one time. The Perahu also runs on motor but there will be a “professional” who pilots it for you, so you do not have to worry about rowing the perahu or sitting under the sun. Food will be prepared for you if you choose the perahu ride.


There is another boat, called the Lepa-Lepa that is offered as a ride at Cruise Tasik Putrajaya. However, we did not ride this boat and I did not get the chance to take any photos of this boat. The boat is described as a single-mast sailing boat for the Bajau Laut or the Sea Gypsies of Sabah. The Lepa-Lepa can accommodate up to 10 people. You may see more of it at this link.

  16. This is like a picnic style outing but on the boat hehe, so nearby to city too! cool!

    1. That is so true. A little different than the conventional picnic and nearby so it’s quite convenient.

  17. i think they have a cruise that does include food right? it’s funny but fun that you guys brought your own

    1. Yes, they do. The Tubester has just been introduced so they’re still gauging if they should or should not serve with food. Hence why we brought our own.

      But like the Dondang Sayang ride, food is included with the price.

    1. Haha yes we did! We were taking pictures and laughing all the time in the boat!

  18. Pooja Kawatra says:

    This must had been a wonderful experience to enjoy hi-tea in this special way.

  19. Wow, looked really fun! That’s one great way to enjoy hi-tea – with views and not in a restaurant 🙂

    1. Yes, it was a lot of fun and slightly different than the usual tea time indoors. It might not be air-conditioned but the air was cooling and the view was perfect.
