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

This is one of the better places to visit in Phnom Penh. It is uplifting and spectacular if you are into things royal. Suggest you wear slip on shoes as you have to take them off when entering some of the buildings. Great photo opportunities.

$10 for a guide is worth every cent. Without it, you have no idea what you’re seeing in this sprawling estate, but with a guide you get to learn about the king (who is 65, single and was a monk), about ascension (where the royal...More

The Royal Palace is an impressive and beautiful building but so much of it is off limits to tourists. The grounds are beautiful and I believe the King was there as so much of the walkways were barricaded. We had a guide and that helped...More

What a magnificent historic palace. Opportunities for many photographs of the outside of the buildings, but no photographs inside. I have never seen so many Buddha's statues and statuettes in one place. Definitely worth visiting.

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
