Never seen anything Ike this it is massive and the buildings are beautiful with colour oozing around everywhere. Give yourself ample time to walk round the whole palace and praying too. Take loads of pics as lots to see. It's very popular.

Only a part of the royal palace is opened to visitors. Interesting architecture and the pagoda. There is model of the Angkor Wat temples there. It is located in the city center. Worth visiting for just to a feel of the kingdom.

The Royal Palace is a must-visit. The architecture is amazing. The jade Buddha is absolutely worth the ticket. However, sometimes they won't allow you to take photos.

Worth seeing even though much was destroyed in the years of the Killing Fields. Pleasant, clean, and easy to visit.

Consisted of several building including the throne room, the French Bungalow, and Silver Pagoda. Make sure you get a guide to tell you the history and significance of the place. It is a nice place to stroll and make selfies.

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, We have some guests asking us about visiting Phnom Penh and especially silver pagoda in Royal Palace, does this place require long hour visiting and how much does it cost for entrance fee, does it require local tour guide? Any good clean restaurant inside? Thank you, Por Cuisine, Siem Reap

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
