Royal Palace
The official home of Cambodian royals is located in the heart of Phnom Penh, where the gilded rooflines of the Royal Palace preside over manicured grounds. It’s a gem of Khmer architecture and one of the city’s most popular sites. Follow in royal footsteps as you explore the intricate Throne Hall, visit the Silver Pagoda, and more.
 
The Basics
While there are many buildings inside the Royal Palace compound, the main tourist attractions are the Throne Hall—where Cambodian kings are crowned—and a few surrounding buildings. On the southern edge of the Royal Palace, the Silver Pagoda (Wat Preah Keo) is another highlight. Also known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, the Silver Pagoda houses images of the Buddha made with precious metals, crystal, and gemstones.

To understand the significance of the site more fully, hire a guide or join a tour; the Royal Palace includes few interpretive signs for visitors. Many guided city tours feature the palace as an included stop.
 
Things to Know Before You Go 
  • The Royal Dance Troupe sometimes performs at the open-air theater in the coronation hall.
  • If you’re planning to take photos, you may need to pay a camera fee upon arrival.
  • Credit cards are not accepted at the ticket office, so bring cash. A handful of ATMs are located within walking distance.
 
How to Get There
The Royal Palace is centrally located near Sisowath Quay, walking distance from many hotels and top attractions in Phnom Penh. If you’re coming from farther afield, consider taking a cyclo, or bicycle rickshaw, which is used most often when traveling short distances. Alternatives include motorcycle-powered tuk-tuks and enclosed taxis; be sure to negotiate the price before departure.
 
When to Get There
The Royal Palace is open daily from 7:30–11am and 2–5pm. To avoid crowds and steamy afternoon temperatures, visit when the Royal Palace first opens. Since the east-facing palace complex catches great light in the mornings, that’s also the best time for photography.

What to Wear to the Royal Palace 
Modest dress is required for men and women at the Royal Palace, which means covering knees and elbows. Shirts are usually available for sale near the entry point. Keep in mind that shawls may not be considered sufficient coverage if you’re wearing something skimpier beneath. In some areas of the Royal Palace, guests must remove footwear; plan ahead by wearing shoes that are easy to slip on and off throughout your visit.

Phnom Penh Full day Private Tour

Phnom Penh Full day Private Tour

Phnom Penh has been the national capital since French colonization of Cambodia, and has grown to become the nation's economic, industrial, and cultural center. Once known as the "Pearl of Asia," it was considered one of the loveliest French-built cities in Indochina in the 1920s. Phnom Penh, along with Siem Reap and Sihanoukville, are significant global and domestic tourist destinations for Cambodia. In colonial times, Phnom Penh was pocketed with cinemas, grand catholic churches and smoky opium dens. After years of war and terror in the 1970s, Phnom Penh is now a city reinventing itself. Many parts of Phnom Penh are still a testament to its French colonial past while the recently developed riverfront area is proof of its future. The Cyclo ride, a traditional form of local transport where you sit and enjoy the backstreets and architecture of the city while the Cyclo rider pedals you around.
