    Default Photoshoot at Istana

    Hi all,

    Every year on May 1, the Prime Minister opens up the normally heavily guarded grounds of his residence/office, Istana. Let's drop in and pay him a visit, shall we?



    The Istana is the official residence of the President of the Republic of Singapore. It occupies over 40 hectares of land along Orchard Road. It is a precious and important part of Singapore's history and heritage, and has borne witness to Singapore's many historical milestones.

    The Istana ground is open to the public five times a year in celebration of Chinese New Year; Deepavali; Hari Raya Puasa; Labour Day; and National Day.

    Admission to the Istana grounds is free for Singaporeans and Singapore Permanent Residents. Other visitors are required to pay an entrance fee of $1 per person. There will be a variety of performances on the grounds during the Open House. For an entrance fee of $2, visitors could tour selected function rooms in the Istana building and view a special display of gifts presented to the President and the Prime Minister.

    I'm not sure if you know this but photography is not allowed for the $2 tour of the function rooms. Enjoy your trip there!
