Hints And Tip For Visiting Angkor Temples

The magnificent Angkor Temples are probably one of the most famous archaeological sites in Asia.  The impressive remains of the Khmer Empire were built between the 9th and the 15th century.  The site was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992 and has been attracting masses of tourists for decades.

If you’re taking a trip to Angkor, you’ll more than likely be staying in the closest city, Siem Reap.

Siem Reap Accommodation Price 

Expect to pay around $10-20 per night for a double room with a fan and en-suite, and possibly a pool.  Where as a place with air con and a pool might cost you anything up to $25 per night.

Transportation Costs 

I’d definitely recommend hiring a tuk tuk from Siem Reap, rather than from around Angkor Temples, which would be more expensive.  The drivers will usually drive you around for the day to the different temples for around $15.  They have their own routes they can take you on, most have the same route with is a big loop and a small loop.  These are good routes to take, you might have to make some alterations on these routes like we did, in order to see everything you want to see.  You can also hire a bike and cycle round the temples, I wouldn’t really advise this though in 30 odd degree heat.

Entry Fees 

Tickets are only available for purchase at the main entrance to the site.  There are a number of different passes which you can buy.  1 day pass – $20.  3 day pass – $40 (can visit 3 days or times in a 1 week period).  7 day pass – $60 (can visit 7 days or times in a 1 month period).  Free for children under 12.  Visiting hours are 5:00am-5:30pm.

Top Tips

  • Know your route before you go.  Especially if you only have a 1 day ticket, you should plan your route, so you use your time wisely.
  • Having said the above, try and see the temples over at least 3 days.  It’s such a huge site and there’s so much to see, it is impossible to do in 1 day.  You will probably only be able to see the main few temples in 1 day.
  • Take plenty of water.  The days can seem very long and tiring when you’re walking around outside in over 30 degree heat.  Also the water sold on the site is overpriced.
  • Get there early.  You’ll want to avoid the crowds and the midday heat if you’re anything like me.  It might be tempting to stay in bed after a night on Pub Street, but it will be worth getting up early in the end.
  • Dress modestly.  These are temples after all and you may not be permitted access to the temples if they feel you’re dressed inappropriately.  Although, these temples don’t seem to be as strict as others across South East Asia, but it’s not worth the risk.
