"The Istana - Office of the President of Singapore" Istana Negara by victorwkf

Istana Negara Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 101 photos

The Istana (http://www.istana.gov.sg/) is the office of the President of Singapore and a symbol of the country which I live in. The President receives and entertains state guests at the Istana, and the entire compound occupies over 100 acres located along the famous Orchard Road.

The Istana is not opening to the public except for a few days of public holidays of Singapore. I visited the Istana together with my wife on 31 Dec 2006 when it was be opened to the public. I will share with you more information and photos of the Istana of Singapore as soon as I can (I am very busy lately).

If you are interested to find out more about Singapore, please visit my VT Singapore page as well as the VT pages on the various locations within Singapore.
