I went with some local Khmer friends I made, they cannot be caught telling the story of the place without a tour guide license. SO! Book a tour or meet a rebel, but the place is way more interesting if you know all the stories, and the history behind things.

Beautiful buildings and gardens - worth a visit. However its a shame to see such wealth in a country where less than 30% of the children can go to school

Just a small residence not open to the public where a former king used to stay when he was in Siem Reap. More interesting is the big park across the street and the small temple where foreign travelers come to seek blessings.

This is just a royal residence for King of Cambodia to stay whenever he visits Siem Reap. His residence is the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh. I was quite curious why are there 2 buildings - one is behind a locked gate and one is not. But the guide could not really tell me.

Very elaborate residence that left me wondering why there are so many opulent palaces in a country filled with poor starving people with missing arms and legs left to beg????

This is maybe the smallest Royal Palace in the world. The architecture with some Khmer touch but european style building. The door entrance was quiet nice toward the Royal Garden in front of the Raffles Hotel
