although Cambodia officially has no pandemic anymore (and it's true); there are no significiant restrictions left except here; people have to wear masks anyway; and the Royal Palace is really an outdoor thing. Too bad it's closed - the Grand Palace in much more restricted Bangkok is open.

This is really beautiful, my favorite places were the garden and the side of the palace. This place is a drop of ancient history in a modern city

NOTE: At time of writing (February 2022), the Royal Palace is currently closed due to Covid-19 and entry is prohibited, meaning you cannot get inside the gates to look at Silver Pagoda nor the other palace buildings. there also appears to be maintenance work being undertaken on several of the buildings, so a lot of scaffolding up.
However, there are several rooftop bars providing nice views of the palace grounds, including at the Palace Gate hotel, which is where we stayed.

Horrible place, dirty un kept and rude people. The guards who are meant to represent security are to be seen walking around the front of the palace in their undergarments and playing on their phones. See them all the time riding their motorbikes without helmets.. Even saw one drunk Peeing against a car parked in the side road . The only thing they seem to care about are the people who walk on the footpath out the front. Even saw one walk upon a child who was kicking a soccer ball and order him off the footway onto the road, mind you the guard was still carrying his rifle. Not a good look at all, and this is meant to represent the law and the country??
