What people are saying:

The former National Palace, also known as the National Museum, was the residence of the highest leader of Malaysia in the early days. It was originally a Chinese merchant's residence, but it was occupied by the Japanese army during the war, and it became the palace of the Sultan of Snowland after 45 years, and the residence of the head of the Federation after the establishment of the Federation of Malaysia. The palace is in the west of the city, the botanical garden south, itself is small, the interior decoration is more grand, but usually not many tourists.
