The official residence of the Cambodian monarch, King Sihamoni -- although its only a title! Even though he has a royal bloodline, he really has no power! Don't miss seeing the Silver Pagoda.

I thought $10 was expensive for the visit because: a. It did not come with free audio tour devices b. Since the royal family still lives there, many places are closed for visiting. Otherwise, a neat place, nothing overboard. Worth a visit to understand the...More

We've read extensively on the web to see if it pays to visit this "public" facility. It was Sunday morning and the palace opens only from 13.00h. At this time the sun burns unbearably. And importantly, unfortunately, very few facilities are really accessible to visitors...More

We actually got a guide in this palace and it was worthwhile, had many insights into the history and many things we would not normally know and there are not many signs around. The palace was great and showed so much history for the region.

Worth seeing if you are Phnom Penh to tick it off the list and to take photos but to be honest not much to see inside as most of the palace is not open to the public and the entrance fee is quite high.

We found $10 where way to expensive for what you see inside, rather just walk past and enjoy the lovely grass infront with all the locals

Definitely see the Royal Palace on your Phnom Penh trip. Go 1pm to 2pm onwards. Spend 2 to 3 hours. Very good tourist attraction.

Hi We stayed at the Mad Monkey, cheap and convenient. The high end is the Nagaworld or the SunWay. Phnom Penh is fairly cheap for taxis and TukTuks and easy to get round. enjoy your trip

Sorry for my late answer. But I'm not sure about that. You should ask the hotel that you booked.
