  • 皇宫平时大门紧闭,游客只能在外面观看,或者跟门口守卫合影。我们去的时候没什么人,听说之前来的一拨游客见到国王和王后回宫,国王还会跟他们招手。

  • Great way to experience the culture of this kingdom and food from this country. Different tastes of food, people and building structure as compared to european palaces. Worth a visit.
  • SUPERB LIFE. WHEN ALLAH GIVES NO PLACE TO KEEP. SULTAN.
  • The most beautiful palace in the world!
  • Large building, but there are lots of large buildings in BSB. Worth checking out from the river, but that is about it.
  • Really hard to see anything from the outside. Walked right around the place and also tried to view from boat on the river. You can see the roof of the building at best.
