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.

A really beautiful Eastern palace, that really cannot be missed if passing through Phnom Penh. Nicely organised and not overcrowded (like the Bangkok palace, which is unbearable with the amount of tourists). The gardens are very pretty, and great respite from the sometimes busy Phnom Penh.

We loved the palace. So grand, so well maintained yet to so serene. A must see attraction for people visiting Phnom Penh. Try to be there early as the door for tourists open at 7:30am& closes at 11am to open again at 2pm.

The visit is ok. You should do it if you stay in phnom penh as there is not so much place to visit but it is quite expensive for not so much to see.

I thought, $10 for entry is bit excessive as not much to see compare with the Royal place in Bangkok etc.

Very nice and intricate designs. I love that these temples are beautifully crafted and not so many tourists are there to visit this place.

Great place to visit. We got a private tour for only 10$. Definitely worth it and good value. The guide was amazing and told us everything we needed to know without going overboard. Answered all out questions and showed us everything there is to see. Your lasted 45 mins. Definitely good value.
