Royal Palace in Phnom Penh is one of the 'must see' places. However, if one compares it with the architecture of neighbour Cambodia, it is slightly dissapointing.

This place is as striking as the Royal Palace in Bangkok and very interesting. We came at the end of the day with our guide. The architecture is beautiful and there is a large scale model of Angkor wat there. Fascinating insight into the Cambodian royal family.

Really interesting palace, the grounds are amazing! Easy to get by a tuk tuk from many local hotels. We had a private guide which was nice, I recommend it.

Incredible buildings and nice atmosphere particularly in the early evening when picnic mats are spread out in front of the palace.

I never get enough Temples or Palaces. Wats, Chedis, I'm all in all the time! This is quite ornate. Like I said. I'm a sucker for this stuff. Must see if you go this way.

What is on display is essentially the exterior of various buildings that makes up the royal palace, and it is definitely worth the trip. I love the architecture, carvings, etc., and they are such a contrast to European castles, which makes it all the more interesting.

My family and I were in Phnom Penh over New years 2017/17 and visited the Royal Palace. We were awestruck by the beautiful buildings and their wonderful colours and designs. It was extremely hot and humid and we sought shelter and the coolness of the inside of buildings when we could. We didnt hire a guide and afterward regretted this,... More

I've spent about an hour just to play outside the Royal Palace. The view is nice despite the hot weather. There are so many pigeons and you could feed them by buying corns (1000 riehl)
