Siem Reap Vistior Guide 59th



getting around the temple & town

Siem Reap city is almost small enough to get around on foot, but not quite. The Angkor Park entrance is 4 kilometers from town and the temples inside the park are as much as 3-4 kilometers apart, ordinarily requiring some sort of trans- portation to tour. Tuk-tuks, motorcycle taxis and car taxis are the most popular forms of transportation. In town it’s always easy to find tuk-tuks and motodups for short trips. Transportation to and around the temples is usually hired by the day. To avoid later misunder- standings make sure to negotiate the details of the driver’s services carefully - exact price, what times you expect the day to begin/end, availability during lunch hours, limitations on your itinerary, extra charges for temple on the ‘Grand Circuit’ or distant temples, etc. Moto-remorques (‘Tuk-tuks’) Moto-remorques are the most common form of trans- portation in town - the semi-enclosed trailer offering a comparatively pleasant ride. And very easy to find. Just step to the curb and they will find you. For short trips around town, foreigners are expected to pay $1-$3. Bargain! Full day rates for transportation to the temples: $15-$20/day (perhaps a couple dollars less if you bar- gain hard.) Additional charge for distant temples. Motorcycle Taxi (Motodup) Motodups are motorcycles on which the passenger rides pillion. Though motodups are the least expensive motorized option, these days ‘tuk-tuks’ are the most popular. Bargain! Motodups should be a bit more than half as expensive as tuk-tuks. Additional charge for transport to distant temples. Full day rates for trans- portation to the temples: $8-$12/day. Grab & Passapp A welcome addition to Cambodia, these app based services, much like Uber, allow you to get to your des- tination without haggling with drivers over prices, or being overcharged. Highly recommended. Cars/Taxis Private car taxis offer a comfortably air-conditioned way to tour the temples, though they are the most expensive option. Rates start at about $25-$40/day plus addition- al charges for distant temples off the main circuits. Taxis from the airport to town also offer taxi/tour services to the temples.
