I visited this place with my local guide in the late afternoon (around 3:30pm), as our arrival in Phnom Penh had been delayed and we had to drop my wife at our hotel (she wasn't feeling so well). It was actually quite a nice place...More

Definitely worth the 10 dollars for a guide to explain the architecture and customs as I didn't understand it before. The guide also knew that a part of the site would be closed to tourists due to a meeting going on so she made sure...More

Palatial buildings in a large compound. Better photographic conditions in the morning. We hired a local guide at the entrance gate; in our opinion it was worth it to get more of an insight into its history and present day role. The young female guide...More

I think its not worth 10$ for the ticket. Many things was closed inside. It takes 35 minutes to walk around whole place.

From an architectual stanpoibt this place is incredible. The detail and craftsmanship is incredible. There is a nice park...and some beggars. This is where protests and government functions happen although it is usually quiet.

The royal palace has to be on any tour of Phnom Penh. The star of the show is the temple with it’s silver tiled floor. There are many treasures in the temple and it’s a pity photography is not allowed but it does mean that...More
