Great experience

It's definitely worth having a guide. Wear a t'shirt with sleeves - a sarong/scarf around your shoulders won't cut it.

The royal palace gives a great insight into recent Cambodian history, be sure to use one of the guides available once you have entered the palace as they add greatly to the experience and speak excellent English

I think it was about $10 U.S. to get in. It is a walking tour although there isn't much of a tour and no guide. Just walk around at the very ornate buildings. Some you can go inside , some are considered holy and you have to take your shoes off first. The buildings are now mainly ceremonial. All in... More

A must visit for anyone visiting Phnom Penh, centrally situated along the river front. A guide is certainly worth while.

Well maintained and not top crowded just after the lunch period. He buildings are in remarkable condition but there is little to explain them. Pieces exhibited inside some of the buildings are some signs. Tip: either read up before going or get a guide to explain things to you. I did neither and probably missed a lot. On the way... More

We were in Cambodia in April, one of the hottest months of the year. The Palace is beautiful but it's a large open space with not a lot of shade and we were dying from the heat. Come prepared with water, sunblock, maybe even a fan. You will have to take off your shoes to go into some areas so... More

Paid $10 for one of the guides to take us round which I think was worth it, got way more info that way. We walked round it in about half an hour as we were tight for time but I don't think you'd want to do this and the Silver Pagoda for more than an hour total. There's plenty to... More
