A good place to show the family, I thought it was a little expensive compared to other things in Cambodia. The women must have their skirt below the knees which cost another $3 for a pair of throw away pants.

The palace and pagoda were very interesting and worth the visit. So I loved that part. The only negative was as follows: when we exited, (and entered) there were many street vendors.

Maybe I was expecting too much. The carvings were intricate but expected it to shine like solver, but just looked like cement.

This is usually part of the visit to the Royal Palace. The silver comes from the floor tiles which are mostly covered by carpet but worth seeing nonetheless .

Originally called the emerald pagoda for the clear emerald buddha at the centre), its a buddhist temple that houses tons of other buddhas and other artefacts. Too bad they covered the silver flooring (where the foreigners pegged the term silver pagoda)

I had a great guide, and I loved the tour of this place. This was the highlight of the city, for me and friends. I think this and the surrounding palace are the most important things to see!
