Sultan Park and national museum

Being part of the old sultan palace, both the park and the national museum are equally significant and beautiful. the park features a beautifully landscaped garden while the museum showcases ancient artefacts that belong to the sultans who ruled the archipelago along with many rare historical finds.

The Artificial Beach

Though by name it says it is an artificial beach upon visiting it you won’t be able to distinguish it from a natural one. The beach area has food stalls and eateries where you could buy food and enjoy a memorable time with your loved one.
