The Istana had an open house on Labour Day so I forced persuaded Juan and her family to go down with Anya & me! It was open from 8.30am to 6pm but we got there pretty late at about 5pm. Entrance was free for Singaporeans (we had to show our ICs) and $1 for foreigners. It was great fun!! There was so much space for the kids to run around and they even set up a few of those Fisher-Price plastic playground-type things for the kids!
