Probably worth an hour of your time if you are in Phnom Penh. The guide was very good and he spoke excellent English. Our trip was cut short by a visit from the HEad of State from Laos but an hour is about right anyway so it wasn't a problem for us in practice. The architecture was reasonably interesting but,...

The palace, and a pleasant experience.

This place is worth seeing once. It is in the Heart of the city with nice grounds and seems to be well kept. Be sure to wear appropriate clothes or you will not get in.

The Royal Palace is right in the middle of the best part of town, so when you go there, it's worth your time to stop by and take in the atmosphere.

The royal palace is made up of many buildings and temples. There is gold, colorful tiles, spires that reach for the sky. The grounds are spectacular. A must see while in Phnom Penh.

Visit the Palace without a tour guide so really just some garden and building inside, Good place for taking picture, that's all.

Amazingly beautiful buildings. Easily accessible, located centrally along the river in Phenom Phen. Well worth visiting. Go early as the day heats up very quickly. Knees & shoulders must be covered.
