King’s Coach | Royal Railway Cambodia

The King’s Coach is a locomotive-hauled passenger coach of the Royal Railway, for use by His Majesty King Norodom Sihamoni. It is a classic wooden carriage beautifully restored with modern amenities such as air-conditioning and private, plush individual seating, along with a separate guest seating area and bar counter.

On certain occasions, Royal Railway may also allow for a private charter of the King’s Coach, designated as Coach E. The cost for the charter is unknown.
