Phnom Penh Royal Railway Station, is a railway station in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. It is located next University of Health Science and the National University of Management and the Canadian embassy. As of February 2014, the station is only used for sporadic goods transport, chiefly oil-tank trains. This station was renovated and formally reopened October 22, 2010. However, the station buildings and platforms are no longer accessible to the public, given that there are currently no passenger services.ConstructionThe station was built in 1932 from reinforced concrete to service the railway to Battambang.HistoryOn September 28-September 30, 1960, twenty-one leaders of the Kampuchean People's Revolutionary Party (KPRP) held a secret congress at the station. The meeting resulted in the party being renamed as the Workers Party of Kampuchea (WPK). In Democratic Kampuchea, this pivotal meeting would later be projected as the founding date of the party. The first important meeting of the Khmer Rouge leadership including Pol Pot was held at the railway station in April 1975, following the fall of Phnom Penh at which the decision to evacuate the cities was taken.

  • I thought when i went to the railway station at Phnom Penh it was going to a great old building but found it to be closed to the public. 
  • We walked all the way to far but when we arrived there we could not advance. It is a special building, train station. So we're left Texel
    show original
  • art deco facade, but nothing else to see or to do. Is is worth a stop only if you are here. The station is closed, and inside you see nothing thats interestiing 
  • Eclipse Sky Bar. 23 stories high. Good food. Good ambiance. A must see in Phnom Penh. Great way to see the whole city and the developments from a bird's eye view
  • Business and market center to visit near independence park
  • Fantastic view, cold drinks ok on a hot evening but the live music was so uneventful, it was distracting. Eventually they will get it right and it will be fabulous.
  • Good place for local and international businesses..
  • The view from the sky lounge is kinda good.
