PUTRAJAYA: The 2018 Royal Floria Putrajaya festival has attracted more than 30,000 visitors in the past four days.

Putrajaya Floria Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Haslinda Khalid said the number of vistors expected to increase further especially on Aug 31 when Malaysia celebrates its National day here in the administrative capital.

Nonetheless, she said, the number of visitors was not the main priority as compared to ensuring that Floria visitors would have a memorable and satifactory visit.

“Each year we make improvements so that visitors will feel that the money spent for the Floria entry ticket is worth it, which is not as expensive as in other countries.
