What I really love the most in Phnom Penh is The Royal Palace. It is situated on the bank of the Mekong river. It was built over a century ago and begun by King Norodom I. We can see the Khmer architecture inside which are so admirable. In the Royal Palace Compound is the Silver Pagoda where the Emerald Buddha is situated. We can enjoy the impressive cultural heritage of Asia.
The Royal Palace is opened to public daily but it closes from 11:00 to 2:00. Make sure you will leave the place before the closing hour or the guards will force you to leave. The entrance fee is $ 6.25 for foreigners and extra $ 2 for camera fees. But, be careful that there are some buildings which are prohibited to take photographs.

It is really awesome, I recommend.
