Came here after visiting the old palace. Very different in the sense that although very nice, it lacked the atmosphere the old Istana has. Probably because it's still so new and things haven't established yet. I do wish they'd kept the royal gold colour scheme instead of the new yellow
If you go to the old Istana, there is a model display of the new palace where you actually get to see more of the layout. The new palace doesn't allow entry for security reasons as it's the official residential place of the current king.
