  • “Great palace, amazing!” Great place, amazing palace, huge territory! Don't know what they really need so large space for living but they are royalties... You can see it from outside the gates only. Beautiful. You must go there but after 4pm it is prohibited for visitors. You can use HOHO buses as well.
  • A big plaza that you can easily spend half day here
  • Really need so large space for living, You are only allowed to look from outside the gate, the gate is huge and beautiful. You can have photos with the guards...Happy vacation friends Tq:)
  • Nice place but can only see from the outside
