There really is all that silver on the floor and you can see the plates at various places even though they are a bit tarnished. It's also a great place to visit for all the fine artworks that adorn the inside and in particular the golden Buddha which looks like it weighs all of the 90kgs of gold and is... More

Unbelievable building along with all the buildings in the Royal compound, but as already stated, putting rugs all over the silver floor and then opening the pagoda up as a tourist attraction sort of defeats the purpose. Disappointed no photos were allowed inside either. The other smaller pagoda and statues around the silver pagoda were also very interesting.

An eye opener to see how flashy, the imperial family was. The buildings are all really beautifully decorated, very rich and ornate but somehow lack a soul. Give yourself a good 3 hours to go round all the buildings, though not all may be open to visitors.

I went with my wife without much expectations, instead Phnom Penh is a very pretty city with interesting attractions, like the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda. We were lucky as there were not as many tourists as you may find at Bangkok Royal Palace, where taking photos is excruciating as you have always people walking in front of you and... More

Yet another marvel of history and beautifully carved. Part of the royal palace, a sight to be appreciated for it's beauty.

A wonderful place to visit and walk around the grounds. The temple is amazing. We were there in a group, which enabled us to have a better idea of the history thanks to our guide. I feel a guide is necessary to fully appreciate this place.

Not sure why, but nobody really looked at the silver pagodas. Not sure if they are too small or because they were grey rather than silver. Maybe its because of the hot sun that's why everyone was attracted to the building in the middle where visitors can look at the statues and all. It actually made me think if the... More

This place was absolutely stunning. We had a guide to show us around and we learnt quite a bit. Make sure you find the lightest clothing because it is fully covered and I thought my scarf around the shoulders and chest was acceptable but it is not, had to put jumper on and nearly fainted from heat stroke.

Inside the Royal Palace you get a map but doesn't label "silver pagoda" and therefore we weren't sure which one it was, especially as they covered up the silver floor! Very confusing but wonderful architecture.
