* Ask for Where, Location, and General. This will usually give you location of the palace and houses.
* Ask for Where, and People. This will give you locations of where a particular person is, like a
tavern, store, house, etc...
If the NPC gives you the location on the map, check it to see where to go. If they don't give it to you, keep asking in different ways and with luck they ''will'' mark it. If they say they don't know then they'll never mark it.
