  • 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.
