Location: Istana
Date: 22 Oct 2017 
Hour: 10 am - 4 pm 
Admission: Check article for details

The Istana is open to Public on selected Public Holidays and for the upcoming Deepavali, the Istana is scheduled to be open on the 22nd of October 2017! 

A few reasons for highlighting this open house

  • Its the last open house for the year
  • Its the first open house with new Madam President Halimah. 

Perhaps with these 2 reasons, there will be more to look forward to in the open house (we can only guess).

Admission to the Istana grounds is free for Singaporeans and Singapore Permanent Residents. Other visitors are required to pay an entrance fee of $2 per person. Entrance to the grounds is via the main gate at Orchard Road. Opening hours are usually from 8.30am to 6.00pm.
