"Istana Negara (Residence of President)" Istana Negara by SLLiew

Istana Negara Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 101 photos

I have walked passed the Istana Negara along Orchard Road many times. The high gates were always closed.

Then I read about VT Victorwkf's page of Istana Negara. That it was open to public to visit on special days.

It was on May 1, 2007 when I suddenly saw a queue of people in front of the Istana Negara. I remembered Victor's page and went and joined the queue.

The rest is history. Hope you enjoy my virtual tour as you may not be in Singapore on those days when the Istana Negara is open to the public.

    I really enjoyed your "journal-like" entries which made it seem as though we were right there with you. The structure is, indeed, imposing, and the grounds [including the golf course] are beautiful.

    Thanks for revisiting my Bangkok page, SL! Great new page here! Istana Negara looks lovely - lots of greenery and great views of the city skyline in the distance! I must have walked past here many times while in Singapore...but knew nothing about it!

    France is indeed a beautiful country (but not as beautiful as Belgium of course). And it is so diverse.
