Very expensive(in Cambodias terms) to enter and, despite having knees covered and a shawl to cover our shoulders we were refused entry.. being offered a T shirt, which we declined, along with others.

Big temple in central Phnom Penh. Entrance fee is little expensive. If you want to know traditional cambodia history, go there. Just enjoy only in front temple also ok

It’s a really beautiful set of buildings but it’s kind of expensive at $10 for the entrance fee. Considering a bus to Siem Reap is only $8, I would skip it and save my money.

A huge area with lots of statues, buildings and gilt all over. Very hot and quite crowded but for a Palace....it lives up to expectations!

To see the coronation chair, how lavishly the center is adorned, was very interesting. Even if we visited on a very rainy day, we visited all the buildings and the stupas that surrounded them. Awe-inspiring.

A great little visit to take in all the area of the royal palace, it wasn't to busy and well worth the time

If you're in Phnom Peng, then this is a must see. It's beautiful with a lot of history. I would recommend to go with a guide, because the story behind it makes it more than just another pretty palace.

This really was a waste of $10USD, not much to see. Large amount of tourists lining up to go inside, most areas you cant access, Would not go back

This is a good place to see and to know more about the royal family. Apart of the museum so you will visit both of them together

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
