Siem Reap International Airport
When your plane arrives in the popular holiday destination of Siem Reap, it will be landing at Siem Reap International Airport, located two miles west of Angkor Wat. One of the busiest airports in the country, it receives flights from places like Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Phuket, and Manila. China Southern Airlines and Cebu Pacific are just two of the many airlines providing service into and out of town. You can use ebookers to find great deals on flights and hotels for your trip.
Ground Transportation from the Airport
Taxi fare from the airport into town will cost you a flat government-regulated fare of $9, and the ride will take about twenty to thirty minutes. The official currency in Cambodia is the Cambodian Real, but all of the ATMs in Siem Reap dispense US dollars, so keep that in mind when figuring out exchange rate conversions. If you'd like to take one of the ubiquitous three-wheel tuk tuk vehicles, you’ll pay $7.
Climate in Siem Reap
Like the rest of Cambodia, Siem Reap has a dry season and a rainy season. Winter starts off cool and dry from November to February, with average temperatures hovering around 25°C and ends up hot and dry from March to May, with temperatures of around 35°C and above. Summer begins in June, which also marks the advent of the rainy season. June to August is rainy and hot, with plenty of humidity and temperatures in the upper 30s. The period between September and November marks the end of the rainy season, with temperatures dipping to around 30°C by the end of the season. Most people tend to visit during the slightly cooler dry season in order to avoid potential flooding. Wear light, loose clothing in order to stay cool.
