For five times a year — that’s Chinese New Year, Hari Raya Puasa, Labour Day, National Day, and Deepavali — the Istana opens its gates to the public.
- Sun, 29 Jan - 2nd day of CNY
- Mon, 1 May - Labour Day
- Sun, 25 Jun - Hari Raya Puasa
- Sun, 30 Jul - National Day
- Wed, 18 Oct- Deepavali
This year, aside from touring the Istana Main Building (for a small fee), you can also take guided tours through the gardens (also with a small fee). Use this opportunity to teach the little ones about flora and fauna, and maybe learn a bit about our history while you’re at it.
Click 'I'm in' if you are keen and share with your friends too!
