Istana Bukit Serene, Johor Bahru: 3 reviews and 2 photos

  One of the gates to the Istana.
by A2002

Istana means the palace. The palace is green in colour perched on a hill-top, surrounded by greenery. There are bungalows around the palace and are for rich people. I have not been to the palace and have never heard of an open house for the public to visit the palace.
Driving around the palace ground is the nearest one can get. Taking pictures and loitering around it, outside the fencing will attract attention and get chased away by the security... Perhaps a photo of the palace from far away when I got the chance next time.
