It was interesting to see the ornate palace and grounds. I hired a guide on arrival (not pre booked) and he was very informative. I would suggest a guide as their isn't a lot of signage or explanation otherwise.

We enjoyed and afternoon visit to the Royal Palace and were not disappointed. It was really beautiful and the differing areas of the Palace were absolutely stunning.

There is no point describing in detail, go and find out for yourselves. An easy way to spend a lovely couple of hours!

The Royal Palace is the official residence of the monarch of the country. You need to be decently dressed to visit this place, cover your shoulders and knees. The palace is beautiful and there are a lot of things to see. It gives you a glimpse of Cambodian culture and heritage. The palaces are beautifully carved and in some places you will have to remove your shoes to go inside. There is also a beautiful palace that have silver tiles in place of flooring, it is covered with carpet, but you will be able to see some silver plates as you walk. There is also a courtyard that has 600 metres of hand painted epic story of Hindu mythology Mahabharat on the walls, which is breathtaking. However, some are in ruins due to water damage on wall and senseless grafitti, which is sad to see. The entrance fee will also get you a complimentary bottle of water, which was a nice gesture in the boiling weather. I would recommend to spend 2-3 hours here and preferably visit during the morning, when it is cooler and not heavily crowded.

This tour is best completed in the morning as it gets quite warm in the courtyards. It's worthwhile investing in a guide to give you a private tour to all the insights and it's also gives you an opportunity to speak with a local. Worth the money.

The Royal Palace complex doesn't have much to see. The throne room is only accessible from a door on the outside and is crowded with people. Other buildings are closed or under renovation. The royal jewels collection is very nice with lots of gem adorned buddhas but is nothing compared to viewing the Royal Jewels of other nations. The highlight for me was the giant long history mural wall - definitely take the time to walk along and see the history of the Khmer people through art. Also, on the way out, do not miss going into the small exhibits on the sides as there are many beautiful cultural artifacts and collections contained in the rooms. It seemed like no one else was aware of the exhibits. I was provided a free bottled water on the way out, which was nice. Overall, the Palace ticket is overpriced and the whole thing can be seen in under an hour. Definitely not a must see.
