The Presidential Palace of Singapore is located at the end of Orchard Road, a famous shopping mall. It is a large garden full of European flavor. May Day is open to the public once again, so that tourists can feel its dignity and relatives more closely. The Presidential Palace only collects ticket fees symbolically. Of course, this is only for tourists other than Singaporean citizens. Security checks are more stringent, but it can not stop the enthusiasm and interest of tourists. In fact, it has a history of more than 100 years. It was the Governor's Palace during the British colonial period. The integration of East and West architectural styles reflects the historical style of Singapore's growth. Although many places can only be seen from afar, it can satisfy my curiosity.
The Presidential Palace of Singapore is open to the public only five times a year. It's the Spring Festival. The second day of the New Year's Day is the Open Day, which brings foreign friends to visit. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., although the sun is good, there are still many tourists. We queued up to buy tickets to visit the treasure house on the first floor. There were no photographs and only English speakers. The garden of the Presidential Palace covers 106 acres and is nearly broken. It's worth visiting many beautiful sceneries and taking beautiful pictures.
The Presidential Palace Park (Istana Park) and the Presidential Palace (Istana) of Singapore pass through the world-famous Presidential Palace Garden and Presidential Palace on their way from their residence on the Domenico Hiking Orchard Road. The fountain in the garden of the presidential palace can water the lawn, because the fountain did not open because of the light rain that day. The garden of the presidential palace is used as a venue for outdoor activities of citizens. The square with flowers blooming is opposite the presidential palace. Istana is the meaning of palace in Malay. It was built in 1867. Its architecture combines Victorian Renaissance style, Roman classical style and Gothic style, forming today's magnificent palace. Every year, the presidential palace opens to the public on Lunar New Year, Labor Day, Singapore National Day and Malay Eid al-Fitr. It can see flowers, plants and rare animals in the park. It can also meet the president unexpectedly.
In fact, the presidential palace is not open every day. The second day of the New Year's Day is the only one open during the New Year. We visited it in the morning and arrived at nearly 10 o'clock. We have already crowded out a long queue. It seems that everyone has heard the news.
Fortunately, it was New Year's Day that year. It was open to the outside world for free and went for a walk. There are a lot of people, there is a big green grassland in the impression, there is a lake, the greening is very good, the sunshine is bright, everything seems just right.
Normally, it is not open to the public, but only on New Year's Day and National Day. The scenery inside is very beautiful. There are two guards at the entrance. On both sides of the road are tall trees, which block the sun's rays. On the right there is a large area of grass. Golf is the best place to play. There is also a pond. There are three white geese floating on the water, which is very beautiful.
The Presidential Palace of Singapore is located in the Golden Zone of Orchard Road in downtown area, covering more than 100 acres. It is only open to the public during public holidays. The design of the Presidential Palace is mainly tropical architecture style, full of Malay flavor, very spectacular and beautiful.
Entering is a big lawn, like a park, shaded by trees. Across the road is an art memorial. Outside the presidential palace, police cars and police guard the door. During holidays, you can apply for admission tickets online. Singaporeans are free and foreigners pay.
