Maybe unrealistic expectations but I assumed we would actually be able to see the "silver pagoda" rather than the tiles poking out from around the edges of a rug. The room is beautifully decorated but you really can't appreciate the silver as you can't see...More

Attached to the Royal Palace, this temple complex has little to recommend it. In fact it is poorly maintained and shabby rather like the city itself. The only interesting feature is the floor which is made up of 5000 blocks of silver - apparently. But...More

The Silver Pagoda was very nice to see and worthwhile visiting if you like old buildings and the culture of Cambodia.

We were a group of four and paid extra $10 for a guide on top of the entrance fee and found it very worthwhile. The guide explains the history and relevance of the buildings, statues, gods and exhibitions. Only a small portion of the silver...More

The place is called Silver Pagoda not because of the building's color but because the floors are made of Silver. These were covered with carpets though to ensure there will be no more further damage to the place.

Take this in as you visit the palace. An opulent room with gold and silver everywhere. A sacred place so shoes off and no photos at all. The photos I have include are seen outside in the courtyard of it.

A majestic grandeur was all over the place, however not well maintained. There were beautiful paintaings on the walls of the surrounding hallways, but now majorly destroyed as paints and cement are scattered all over the paintings. Inside the pagoda, the beautiful silver floor tiles...More

Another excellent example of Cambodian architecture, within the Royal Palace precinct, a truly beautiful building and well worth spending time exploring whilst in the precinct.

We had a half day tour which included the palace and the old prison, but ours was part of our package from Riviera Travel, I am sure your hotel could arrange a Taxi that would carry out this tour while you are in Phnom Penh

You can get in as part of Royal Palace. Be sure to be covered up, no short shorts or sleeveless shirts. They give you a map and you can follow the crowd. Once you get into courtyard area you are free to wander.
