Visiting Angkor Wat
Angkhor Wat is located 6 km from Siem Reap. If you are only planning to visit Angkor Wat, and not any of the other nearby temples then you can take one-way trips on motorbike taxis or normal taxis or tuk-tuks. If you plan to visit several of the temple then the going rate for hiring a tuk-tuk for the day is $25 USD. The tuk-tuk driver will act as guide. If you want to save money then hire a bicycle which will cost you between $2 and $5 USD a day depending upon how good the bicycle is. We recommend that you don’t rent your own motorbike or moped in Siem Reap. Roads in Cambodia are dangerous to drive and the local police have been known to seek out foreigners on motorbikes to levy large fines.
Angkor Wat itself in open everyday from 05:00 until 17:30. The opening hours for other nearby temples is different. You need to buy either a 1 day pass ($37 USD), a 3 day pass ($62 USD) or a 7 day pass ($72 USD) to get into Angkor Wat, which will also get you entry to other nearby temple complexes such as Angkor Thom. We recommend spending a whole day at Angkor Wat as it is a 2 square kilometre site with lots of things to see. You can try to visit several temples into a single day, but it is hot in Siem Reap and you will simply turn your trip into an unpleasant experience if you try to do too much in a day. Take it easy and appreciate the smaller details.
