The Istana in Singapore

Getting there, what to see

The Istana is the picturesque residence of the President of Singapore. It includes a classical building with numerous other design influences from the Victorian Renaissance to the Roman Classical. There are also well-manicured rare plants taken care of by the superintendents of the Singapore Botanic Gardens. However, the Istana is only open to the public five times a year, on days such as the Istana Open House.

There is also a monthly Change of Guards ceremony at the Istana Main Gate on the first Sunday of every month from 6-6.30pm.
