The complex is quite large with a great deal to see so make sure you allow enough time to do it justice. Beautifully maintained and the surrounding gardens are superb! We had a guide which I would recommend so the significance of some features are not missed. I highly recommend you visit here when in Phnom Penh.

Probably best to not go at 2pm when it's super hot, but if you get there right when it re-opens after lunch, most of your pictures won't have other tourists in them! :)

Royal Palace is a must-see when in Phnom Penh, you should make sure that you are dressed appropriately beforehand to avoid having to buy clothes on-site and bring water and comfy walking shoes.

Paid around 6 USD to get into the complex. We were given a map to locate and know the names of the buildings of the palace. I recommend to bring some umbrella and water because it was so hot when we came. A big complex. To know more about our trip, you can see my blog post at http://katmeifucan.blogspot.com/2015/07/1-day-historical-and-cultural-tour-in.html :)

it's a nice and particular place to visit. Quite annoying not to be allowed to take photos indoors and not to step in the main palace building...

we went with a guide to the palace. The guide was very excited about us seeing the Palace but although it was interesting, if we had not visited I wouldn't have been disappointed. Probably the fact that the palace is decked out with all the luxury,yet just outside the gates there is abject poverty is what disappointed me the most.... More

Right in the middle of the waterfront area, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit thanks to the excellent dialogue from our Wendy Wu tour guide and the amazing palace architecture. Well worth a visit to see both the palace and the Silver Pagoda (so called for the silver floor, not the exterior) which houses both the famed Emerald Buddha statue and... More

I normally don't take guides at asian tourist venues but as I didn't think I knew a lot about Cambodia and the monarchy,I thought I would. so very glad I did. His explanations were interesting and fresh.There is not a lot to see but he made it come to life. The gardens are nice, the throne room is grand it... More
