Outside the palace is very hot, so I recommend you to prepare a comfortable clothes while in this tourist site. Here you can take pictures with the palace gatekeepers who are fully dressed.
２０１１年に完成した新しい王宮です、朝から観光客がたくさん見学に来ていました。 正面の門の先に金色のドーム状の屋根を乗せた王宮が見えましたが、もちろん門から中には入れません。 門の脇には衛兵が立っていてたくさんの観光客がカメラを向けていました。 日影がないので暑いです、長居はできない場所でした。 more »The new royal Palace was completed in 2011, and a lot of tourists came from the morning to visit. I could see the royal Palace with a golden domed roof at the front gate, but of course I can't get in from the gate. There was a guard standing by the gate, and a lot of tourists were turning the camera. It was a very hot and hikage place.
Not permitted to enter, only taking photograph in front of the gate. But looking from the gates does not give you any concept of the enormity of this palace. It is massive and it is elaborate. The guards at the gate stand at attention in full uniform in the oppressive heat. Worth the drive past for a look. The place is architecturally well built and we are not free to roam around
One of the iconic and must to stop by for the first time visit tourist.. you only can access and walk until the main gate of the palace.. we cannot go inside but we can take photo with the iconic guard with his horse. Going in the morning is the best option while around 10.00 am already so hot and shiny
