We went for this opening on our last morning in PP and it rained the afternoon before when we originally planned to go. I’d recommend that you go first thing and get a guide - it’s well worth it. They will take you around the...More

The Royal Palace is one of the key sites for tourism. Full of people and lots to see on Cambodian Royal History. Perhaps overpriced but if the money is paying for conservation of the murals in the silver pagoda then worth the price

But pick the right time to go, if there is one, always packed shoulder to shoulder. Typical lavish buildings and interiors though not always accessible. It's closed at lunch time.

Okay, you don't actually get to walk inside the palace, but you can wander through parts of the grounds, The palace, and the gardens are nothing short of amazing, and there are a couple of museums here on the history of the family as well.

Hi We stayed at the Mad Monkey, cheap and convenient. The high end is the Nagaworld or the SunWay. Phnom Penh is fairly cheap for taxis and TukTuks and easy to get round. enjoy your trip
