When you visit this you'll be in awe of the amazing architecture and riches inside. Come as early as you can because it will be pack full of tourists in no time!

We followed other people’s advice and took a guide for $10 and we were happy we did it. Our guy Ritz - however that it’s spelled - was very informed but more than this - I guess we could have found this information in a...More

Typical tourist temple destination. It was ok. You can get blessed there which I didn’t do but would be probably the only real reason to go there. Lots of closed off buildings and construction too. All in all, I really could have not gone and...More

Don't waste your time and money unless you're obsessed with royalty or something stupid like that. We got charged extra for paying in USD. We walked around the complex for 30 minutes while realising just how bored we were with it all. IDK maybe we...More

The Royal Palace is a beautiful location, with gorgeous buildings and sculpted gardens. Some lovely photo opportunities. I wouldn’t classify this as a must-see, it’s more a “nice to see if you have the time”.

A wonderful place filled with amazing architecture and ancient relics. A stark contrast to the genocide museum but nether the less, a must visit attraction in Phnom Penh.

The Royal Place is a must-see if you are in Phnom Penh. I would highly recommend that you use a tour guide. Besides getting in easily, he was able to show us all the fine details of the Palace. I believe if you just wandered...More

We was on an organised trip so had a guide. It's worth a visit like all touristy places are, that's why you go on holiday!

The palace is a delightful place to visit when in Phnom Penh. Situated close to the waterfront there is usually a cool breeze to temper the heat as you move from one glorious building to another. The architecture is amazing and mirrors the style seen...More

Lovely to look at. The street is closed to traffic so great to let kids wander. Unfortunately lots of beggars around the area and they use their children to approach tourists. Surprisingly I was able to use it as a learning opportunity with my kids...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
