Planning Your Siem Reap Visit

When to visit?

You can visit Siem Reap all year round, however, make sure to look at the climate statistics before you go and while you are there and plan your days accordingly! The weather is tropical and variable. As a rule of thumb, the weather is driest from November to March, so if you want to avoid tropical rain, then this is perhaps the best time to book your trip!

How may days?

Most tourists go to the region to visit the local temples. You can purchase different types of temple passes. However, a three day pass, and three nights in Siem Reap will be enough to fufill any temple-goers!

Angkor Wat Full-Day Small-Group Sunrise Tour Reviewed by cindy, 10/10/2018

Excellent Sunrise trip to Angkor Wat with a great tour guide.

Our guide Chai was very professional and patient - plus he is an awesome photographer! The trip was well organised right from the 5am pickup till we got back to our hotel around midday. We got to learn a lot around the history of Angkor Wat. We especially enjoyed the fact that we spent more time in the not so crowded areas of the temples which made for great photos.

Siem Reap: Full-Day Small Group Temples Tour Reviewed by Mellou Jane, 08/16/2018

Very professional. Surprisingly inexpensive

I was worried about the early morning start but I awoke on time and the pickup was on time too. Sunrise was not so good due to clouds but the rest of the tour was as expected. The bus was in excellent condition. The group was about 10 people. Towel and water were offered. The guides English was quite OK and explanations were adequate. The temples are amazing of course. A breakfast was included at a rather pleasant restaurant. Very pleasant views and excellent food... Far better than at my lodging... Too much for me to eat. Thanks a lot
