  • The Palace is nice to visit. It is small. Often we forget to go see the thumbnail of the Angkor temple, which also serves as a tray to fish just as impressive as the thumbnail also. Which is a shame, it is to pay for entry, a guide must be and I don't know what everyday inventions that operators are to ask for a dollar by here, a dollar there. But the worst part is that with all these tourists and all that money, the renovations do not! Especially don't give no more, this money would never be used to restore, the Minister prelier will this fit in his pockets!
