Wonderful insight into the riches of the Khmer era with some amazing architecture and examples of Khmer art and the role of Buddhism in the country. The queue to get in is a little chaotic but not surprising. Make sure to wear appropriate clothing and footwear, otherwise you'll be turned away. Recommend visiting when well rested as there's a lot... More

Went today - Chinese New Year. Tired to get in at 8 but was closed in the morning. Reopened at 2pm. Because it was closed half the day it was very crowded . On the way there a tuk tuk driver said we couldn't get in cause we had on shorts. Not true. If you have on knee length shorts... More

If your in Cambodia you owe it to yourself to visit the royal palace. Amazing history, the art is incredible, tours are available or you can walk through at your own pace. I enjoyed this tour

It's a nice well maintained palace with the main attraction being the Silver Pagoda inside the palace compound. The palace per say does not have much to see except the well maintained lawns and architecture.

This is a beautiful complex of buildings and grounds and worth a visit. It is a pity that you can no longer enter the throne room thanks to previous careless tourists!

Beautiful architecture. Whilst parts are cordoned off, honestly in all the heat and not much shade it's not too much of a detract.

Amazed with the architectural design of the buildings inside the palace. Perfect time to walk around in the afternoon when the sun is setting down. Many tourists sit on the green ground at the riverfront.

In view of the poverty of the average Cambodian one might wonder why they have such reverence for the profligacy of theirrulers. nonetheless beautiful buildings!

All the splendour of a palace bringing thoughts back along the lines of Bangkok Temple meets the Forbidden City

We paid the $10 for a tour guide and were glad we did. The rooms are beautiful, and the back-story from the guide helped explain what we were seeing. Too bad they don't have any live elephants in the elephant quarters.
