Hari Raya Aidilfitri Open House At Istana Kota Kinabalu Sabah

After visited the Likas Sport Complex, I went to the ISTANA where the Yang Di-Pertua Negeri Sabah Tun Satuk Seri Panglima Ahmadshah Bin Abdullah stay. The Istana is located in the city of Kota Kinabalu but it is build on top of a hill.

This is the entrance of the Istana and we are not allowed to drive into it. So have to park our car outside and walk on foot.

The main gate of the Istana. Still a long way to go. The Istana is at the top of this hill. I wonder how much petrol being consume a day when our Yang Di-Pertua Negeri Sabah and his family went in and out his Istana.

Finally we arrive. Well, the Istana is not as big as I imagine. The design of the Istana is also not so luxury. Bad news is that we are not allowed to go into the Istana. The Hari Raya Open house is held and the back of the Istana.

So we need to take this route to the back of the Istana.

Very Obvious, the food here is provided by the Promenade Hotel and also Bravely Hotel seem thier vehicle was here. Both of these hotels are rated 4-star in Kota Kinabalu.

The car in Istana. Wonder do Yang Di-Pertua Negeri Sabah Drive this?

Another bad news when I arrived in Istana is that they were packing up. Mean no more food for us.

Never mind, I walk around and take some picture. Enjoy the picture below.
The compound of the Istana is not as big as I imagine. But the view and the air here is really good.

A dry Swimming pool.

From the Istana, you can see part of the Kota Kinabalu Town. What do you think with this view?

The Picture below shows some of the places in Kota Kinabalu.
