After a simple breakfast at upmarket Cafe Fresco along the riverfront, I walked aimlessly around the neighborhood.
The Royal Palace, I was assured, was not quite as stunning as the one in Bangkok, though it seemed worthy of a visit.
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.
