It's absolutely beautiful. Worth a visit. Relatively expensive given the amount of restricted areas.

Reading the guides and trip advasor opinions we expected sth spectacular and booke 2 hrs for it. Unfortunately: 1. Half of the area and buildings are closed for public. 2. The silver floor in the pagoda is covered (probably more then 90%) with carpets, so...More

The Royal Palace is quite impressive, with its massive golden sphires and amazing location right at the Mekong riverfront. We were there at dusk, which meant the place was rather empty. If you're willing to spend some extra money, an actual guide (10$) would be...More

Spend a half day here. The queue was quite long to get in but worth the wait as it was very special. Very good

Truly the best sight in phnom penh, but crowded and the entrance fee of 10$ is quite high. So i guess you have to see it, but dont expect much.

The Royal Palace in Phnom Penh is absolutely worth a visit. I strongly recommend to go with a private Tourguide, USD 10 at the ticket booth. None of the buildings have any descriptions as this Palace is in use everyday and the Cambodian king still...More

The palace is worth a visit if you engage a tour guide when you get there. As it is currently in use there are no labels or posted information about the buildings or artefacts. A tour guide costs $10 for about 30 minutes. Unless you...More

This was an interesting visit - we got a guide from the palace for $10 so it's not cheap when you add in the entry fee. But I'm glad I went. Our guide spoke great English so I asked all sorts of questions. The guides...More

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
