Why Royal Palace is special ?
What to explore at Royal Palace?
It is interesting to be able to wander round a palace which until very recently was occupied by the King and Queen. The official reception rooms are, as you might imagine, elaborately furnished with extravagent use of yellow,the royal colour,and plenty of gold leaf.
The private apartments and bedrooms are more simply furnished and you get the impression that perhaps the best items of furniture were transferred to the new palace, leaving the second best items behind in the museum.
The palace also lacks the personal possessions of the royal families who once occupied it and for that reason why there are better royal museums in Malaysia such as the Royal Gallery in Klang, or the Galeri Sultan Azlan Shah in Kuala Kangsar.

Tips for you
the new istana is huge and grander than the old istana
Very attractive building in large private grounds.You can't get into the grounds but don't let that put you off going here. Easy to get to on the hop on hop off bus service (stop 13) and when we visited the bus stayed for about 10 minutes to allow photographs to be taken. Reminiscent of Horse Guards Parade in London with the Royal guards on foot and on horseback....very smart! Excellent photo opportunites.Well worth visiting .
This is a nice building to see, but nothing to really do there. The poor guides that have to spend their days in the extreme heat
On our City tour we were only aloud to view the Royal Palace from the ouside, There were no guards on duty and the view of the Palace was obstructed by many trees. Would of been nice to get a closer look.
