Its $6.5 to go in & another $10 for a guide - slightly pricey which is the only downside. You can buy tickets at the door. Shoulders & knees need to be covered... More

Superb buildings and there are plenty of them to work through. Some of the areas were cordoned off due to maintenance which was a little disappointing. Otherwise very interesting, we did not get a guide but in hindsight this would have been beneficial as there are very few information boards.

A palace for king. Blue flag were up today, meaning his Highness was in the palace. A grand palace that welcomes all the head of countries, a few stupas placing ashes of previous kings, with king Norodom Sihanouk`s stupa design similar to bantaey srei.

It's a beautiful iconic structure situated by the Mekong River. Lots of stunning architectures and very beautiful garden too. You must pay if you want to bring your camera in to take pictures. You can hire an in house guide to have a better understanding of the royal palace. Bring water along with you as you will thirst for a... More
