バンダルスリブガワンの街中からは位置関係もあって良く分かりませんでした。ブルネイ川の水上タクシーをチャーターして見学して回っていた際、近くまで寄ってくれました。水上からでは全容を眺める事は叶いませんでしたが、ゴールドに輝くドームが見えました。 more »I didn't know much about the location from the city of Bandar Seri Begawan. When I chartered a water taxi on the Brunei River and toured around, they stopped by me. It was not eway to see the whole picture from the water, but I could see the dome shining in gold.
Very big palace but tourists were allowed only at the outer gate (main entrance). There is another layer of gate guarded by armed military personnel. The outer gate's royal guard was very friendly and sometime you'll be allowed to take a group photo with him.
Looks nice from the outside but that is all you can do. The guard was very nice.
