Know before you go
- Dress standards are conservative throughout Asia, especially outside major cities. To respect this, and for your own comfort, it's strongly recommended you wear modest clothing. This means clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in the predominately hot Asian climate.
- Visitors to the Royal Palace must wear shorts or skirts that are knee-length or below, shirt sleeves that reach the elbow or longer, and sandals or shoes (no flip flops). Otherwise, you will be required to rent appropriate covering.
- The Royal Palace grounds may be closed on important Khmer holidays for part or all of the day, therefore the order of visiting different sites may change in order to accommodate this. In the rare event the palace grounds are closed for the entire day, an alternate activity of the same value will be provided.
- Child Policy: Children below the age of 6 are not permitted on this tour.
