Most of the area is restricted. They only open a portion of the place to the public for picture taking. But there are occasions where they open the entire area to the public. I guess it depends on the President.

A military personnel was at the gate. Aside from guarding the place, he had a “sideline”. Selling “duyan” (swing in english right?)
