Great informative tour. Always work spending the additional $5 on the tour guide who will walk you through the areas and history. The exhibits are not labelled so this is essential for top enjoyment.

This palace was not always open to public. It is now and it is a good opportunity to be guided in the various places. A nice visit if you like royal places. You will certainly couple this visit with the visit of the Silver Pagoda next door.

It truly is a beautiful compound, but the $10 price for nothing more than a 1 hour walk through wasn't worth it. Maybe it would be if, as a group, you hired a guide. Hours 8 to 11 am and 2 to 5 pm. Much of the compound is closed off and the small "exhibits" have no information detailing the... More

The royal compound is very easy to locate, just along the river. It has 2 spacious areas, the royal palace on one and the silver pagoda in the other. It has a lot of buildings to see and is definately one of Phnom Penh's highlights

A compulsory visit but, for those who have been to Bangkok, it is literally a very small copy of Wat Pra Keo. Because the King lives in residence here, much of the compound and buildings are not admissable. Be aware that the rules in no knees showing shorts is strictly observed here

This palace site contains several temples. Since they are still used by the Royal family and have many artifacts in them they give you a good understanding of the Royals and how they have lived. For sure this is a must see,
