Not just the building, focus on the Royal Park trees

We stayed at the Victoria Angkor Resort and walked through Royal Park on our way along the river to Old Market. As we passed the attractive Royal Residence, I took a photo. But... read more

We stayed at the Victoria Angkor Resort and walked through Royal Park on our way along the river to Old Market. As we passed the attractive Royal Residence, I took a photo. But we also looked up to the top of the tall trees nearby in Royal Park, as we were told that bats hang out there. They do! There... More

A Palace complex on the grand scale. Showing the grandeur of the Khymer civilization over a 1000 years ago.

Although the gardens are worth a stroll this handsome structure is closed to the public. It may be magnificent as far as Cambodian houses, but it is certainly not an impressive structure when compared to other southeast Asian palaces or European ones. The park and surrounding environs, though, are among the most handsome parts of Siem Reap.

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.

I stumbled across the royal residence, a summer retreat if you call it that for the King to visit whilst in Siem Reap. It is located on National Route 6 ( Airport Road ) close to the river with an attractive garden area on the other side of the road. It is a fairly simple white structure which doesn't really...

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????
