Fodor's Review

Built in 1869, this elegant neo-Palladian style building set in extensive tropical gardens once served as the British colonial governor's residence and is now the official residence of the president of Singapore. Istana means palace in Malay. The building and grounds are open to the public only on the holidays listed on its website. On the first Sunday of each month, a changing-of-the-guard ceremony at the main gates on Orchard Road is held at 5:45.
