"The Royal Palace is a complex of buildings that has served as the royal residence of the Kings of Cambodia since it was built in the 1860s, and is one of the must-see sites in Phnom Penh on your visit.
Facing towards the East and situated at the Western bank of the cross division of the Tonle Sap River and the Mekong River called Chaktomuk, the Royal Palace is open to visitors daily except for when there is any formal ceremony held inside. Getting a ticket to visit isn't expensive. The Palace isn't very big but always worth visiting and appreciating. "

"Very interesting self guided place that is filled with many individual rooms and places of worship. Will probably take half a day to walk around.
Make sure you are fully covered up i.e. long pants and long sleeves. Otherwise you cannot enter."

"The best place ever. Come to visit Phnom Penh, if you skip the royal palace, don't come to Phnom Penh because there is the best. Have some rules before visit here, you can't wear short skirt or pants. Hard to find parking and no Wi-Fi."

"Beautiful grounds with a number of incredible buildings but parts are off limits. For a comparatively large entrance fee, you don't get a lot. But still nice to see. If you're really interested, hire a guide to explain as you go"
