This is my favourite photo of the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh at night. It was taken with my trusty point-and-shoot camera while my husband and I were enjoying  the night river cruise.

The lights decorating the Royal Palace creates a golden (almost embossed) outline of the building amidst the blackness of the night. It was a fantastic sight, almost like something magical and surreal you read about in many fairy tales.

APAD 044: Rage against the dying of the light

Posted by on Apr 22, 2011 in A Photo a Day, Addicted to Meme, All things Khmer, night shots, Royal Palace, Skywatch Friday | 5 comments

The well-lit Royal Palace, showing off the distinct Khmer-classical style of architecture, stands out amidst the darkness engulfing the whole landscape. This was taken during one of our river-boat cruises on Tonle Bassac (Bassac River). We enjoyed the scenery and the breezy, balmy weather made our river cruise a more pleasant experience. The particular area where we were is the junction of the Tonle Bassac, Tonle Sap, and the mighty Tonle Mekong. If you are visiting the city, do not forget to take a river-boat cruise.

Taken from a boat while we were on a river cruise. The sun has just set and the light is fading. I love the silhouette of the palace spires jutting out against the orange sky.
