The Palace is really a compound of smaller buildings/stupas spread out over several acres. The entire grounds/buildings takes about 2 hours to visit, and is reasonable at $10. However no information/map is provided, which given the somewhat disjointed nature of the palace grounds, would come...More

The wealth and beauty of the Royal Palace in the heart of Cambodia's capital city is something to behold. One has to wonder how such royalty existed while so many in the country lived such meager lives. But that could be said about most countries...More

We enjoyed the visit but it can be very crowded . The rooms each offer a different theme and you really get a flavour of life in the Royal Palace Well worth visiting

Get there early and avoid the crowds. Our guide made sure we were the first people in so we could take unobstructed photos before the hordes arrived. Beautiful buildings and easy to get to.

The Royal Palace is a beautiful complex and a must see while in Phnom Pen, although we believe that the 10 USD price per visitor fee (including children) is quite too much, since you can't get inside or take photos of most of the buildings.

The royal palace is a compound of many buildings. The Throne Hall is the most striking structure. Unfortunately you can only look through the doors and windows. Never-the-less, it is definitely not to be missed.

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.....
