The Royal Palace

 

The Royal Palace in Phnom Penh

After a simple breakfast at upmarket Cafe Fresco along the riverfront, I walked aimlessly around the neighborhood.

 

The building with the throne :)

The Royal Palace, I was assured, was not quite as stunning as the one in Bangkok, though it seemed worthy of a visit.

 

Temple with Buddha inside (and silver floors)

While it lacked the Thai flair for colorful mosaics, the architecture was very similar and beautiful in its own right.  Neither  the building with the throne, nor the temple with the giant gem-studded gold Buddha and silver-tiled flooring allowed photography, so you'll just have to put Cambodia on your travel list if you want to see what's inside.

One word, beautiful. I'll bet the beauty and serenity inside those buildings is beyond description.

Too bad they don't allow photography. I like reading travelogues because they allow me to experience the different places and cultures even though I'm not personally there. I guess I really will have to personally go to Cambodia to see those rooms though... :lol:
