We visited this place as well as the old istana negara and the exhibition there. There was an interesting display of royal jewellry, thrones and portraits. Tickets were very reasonably priced and we enjoyed the experiance.

Not over the top and nice to see that you can take photos with the guards on their horse or lone guard. Close to Buks Palace re the guards but difficult to replicate.

We came here by a taxi as we weren't sure how to get here by a public transport. This palace looked very nice, less gold then the new one and older looking of course, the gate was lovely. You could enter the gardens which we chose not to as it was about to rain. I think you had to pay a very small fee to enter the gardens.

This place is too far away from any kind of public transport...well that's what we thought so we took a taxi. It was a good decision. We really liked how the palace looked like, all golden. We took lots of photos. The gates were closed and you couldn't enter the gardens but you could still see the palace in the gardens. Mind you the old palace was lovely and I didn't understand why the king needed a new one.
