  • We thought the palace worth a visit and the museum interesting. The guide there is knowledgeable and happy to show you around. Shame about the telecoms tower which can spoil external photos 
  • There is nothing unusually attractive about this Palace. If you have time at hand then you can plan it but not particularly make it a Must See spot. You can do away with this place also. 
  • This is a must-see. Excellent collection of original Tangkhas and other artefacts... well preserved and well explained by the house keeper.
