    Can only shoot in the garden area.
    Tried shooting near the Istana Building and the security chased me away.
    Certainly no photography in the building. The unfriendly security guard cautioned me when I was putting my camera into the bag before I enter the building.

    Yup, no photography inside the building but outside is OK. I shot just outside the main building without any issue leh. Anyway, once inside, yr movement is kind of restricted. You have to follow the queue as there will be a lot of ppl going in.

    The Garden area have lots of nice flowers to shoot. The landscape is beautiful. bring yr models in for the rare chance to shoot there. haha

    i guess the rain and humid vapour is really a big risk. Do not change lens in the outdoor.

    isit? me die liao, posted a few last year. I only know that one cannot shoot at the istana grounds from the Westin roof top (helipad). The security guard told me that when I was up there a few months back.

    Luval, yup we are enjoying lah. photography is our hobby and we enjoy shooting..hee. The istana ground is only open 5 times a year, making it a rare chance for any special shoot but we must respect the place lah. proper dressing etc.
