The palace is worth a visit if you have time. I spent about 45minutes here. Personally it wouldn't be my first choice to visit while in phnom phen but if you have spare time. It's worth it.

We arrived early (7.30am ish) for our visit to the Royal Palace, knowing it didn't open until 8am. Our early arrival was to dodge the morning traffic jam. All was ok until we were informed by a Tuk tuk driver at the Palace that it...More

The Royal Palace is definitely worth a visit when you are in Phnom Penh. It is the official residence of the King of Cambodia, and the splendor of the Khmer culture is evident in the collection of beautiful buildings. The Royal Palace was also modeled...More

A complex of throne hall, silver pagoda and dancing hall, worth the time you spend there; although, regulations limited our access to some parts. Dress code (shoulders and knees must be covered, shoulders must be covered with a shirt and scarf is not accepted!!) may...More

It is very beautiful and I would highly recommend that you visit it. The gold details and silver floors are beautiful. My only tip would be: BRING A SUNHAT because holy moly, it was hot. There isn't much shade, and if it's late afternoon, the...More

This was something I felt I should do as it is an important piece of history for Cambodian people. Glad I did, the Palace and it's grounds were beautiful, gardens quite spectacular. Lots of tourists and strict dress code so be prepared, no shoulders or...More

Beautiful architecture and gardens, some artefacts and options to pray with the locals, the Royal Palace is definitely something to visit if you have nothing to do.

If you don't have anything better to do and don't mind paying $10 then go ahead. Not much to see - looks all the same. You can get some good photos from the outside with more character - children playing, pigeons etc.

The Palace is totally different from the palaces in India yet it has its own way of showing the kind of Luxury it had to offer its residents

I honestly don't know, part of the palace was closed when we visited due to a state visit by someone from Belgium, didn't see any notices indicating scheduled closures whilst we were there.....

Hi there - You can probably spend 1-1.5 hours max in the entire palace and be fine. I can remember the exact fee, but was reasonable (under 7$ US I think). No tour guide required. No restaurants inside the palace, buy... More
