“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

A necessary visit to this venue. Plenty of time to move around the enormous site. Easy to take photographs.

“Close and accessible”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

This was our first attraction in Cambodia. Just be aware that it is only open from 8.00am to 11.00am and then again from 2.00pm to we think 4.30pm. There were a number of rooms closed off but you could see the Throne quite easily. The opulence is staggering, with gold and silver everywhere. Not over crowded plus you can hire a guide at the entrance if you want. There were monkeys wandering on the roof tops.

“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

A great example of Cambodian architecture, found it very interesting also the gardens are beautiful filled with water lilies and lotus. Spent a pleasant few hours wandering around. Well worth the few dollars entry price.

“BIT OF A RIP-OFF”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Thought this was expensive for what you could see - it's quite a big complex but large parts of it are out of bounds to visitors.

“It was okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Not much to say really. There wasn't much to see and a lot of the palace grounds were closed to the public.
