4. Recommendation: How Many Days of Angkor Ticket to Buy?
Angkor Wat ticket price 2019/2020 is US$37 (1 day), US$62 (3 days) and US$72 (1 week) as of 1st February 2017, managed by Angkor Enterprise. There are two ways to buy an Angkor Wat ticket – from the ticket office or online. It is recommended to purchase the Angkor tickets from the ticket counter as it is a cheaper option between the two.
If you want convenience and do not mind to pay a bit more, you can have the tickets delivered to your hotel before your arrival date from a reliable source. You have to purchase the Angkor Wat ticket online at least one week before going to Siem Reap.
Can you buy Angkor Wat tickets in advance? Quoted on the official website on Angkor Wat Ticket management,
The Angkor Ticket Office (Angkor Enterprise) is the only place where you can purchase entrance tickets for the Angkor Archaeological Park. Tickets purchased elsewhere are not valid.
Because of the text in bold, it may deem impossible to buy the Angkor Wat tickets online. But no! It is possible to purchase the Angkor ticket in advance…
A tour agency in Siem Reap, Green Era Travel would do the legwork for you by getting the Angkor tickets from the official counter and then deliver to your hotel. Consequently, the ticket price to the Angkor temples would be higher due to the price markup for that extra effort made to eliminate you from encountering a long queue during peak season.
Is it worth paying for that extra? Why not especially if you have a limited time in Siem Reap and do not want to waste time queuing at the counter under the hot weather in Cambodia.
Here are the Angkor Wat entrance fees when you buy the admission tickets at Angkor Wat Ticket Office or online.

The location of the official Angkor Wat ticket counter is approximately 5 km away from the city centre, 12 minutes of driving. From the Angkor Wat Pass Counter to Angkor Wat, the distance is between 7 km to 8.5 km by driving, 15 minutes by car. The total driving time is 30 minutes to the destination. Your taxi or tuk-tuk driver will first drive you to the Angkor Wat Ticket Office to buy the entry ticket before visiting the temples.
Our taxi driver first picked us up from the Royal Crown Hotel & Spa in the morning and then go to the Angkor Wat Ticket Office.
❶ From Siem Reap city to Angkor Wat Ticket Office: 5 km | 12 mins driving
❷ From Angkor Wat Ticket Office to Angkor Park: 8 km | 15 mins driving
We purchased the Angkor Wat tickets in April, which was the hottest month and hence, a low peak season. There were virtually not many tourists around. From the photos, you can see several ticket counters at Angkor Wat Ticket Office, more than 40. Even if the queue were long, the clearance should be pretty fast. The counter staff will take a photo of your face before it is printed onto the paper ticket instantly.
⦿ Wear appropriate attire when purchasing Angkor ticket at the ticket office like how you would go to the temples later. Cover your shoulder and knees if you want to climb up to Angkor Wat Temple vantage point. Otherwise, the security officer will prohibit you from ascending to visit the sacred place later.
⦿ Angkor Wat Ticket Office Hours: 5:00 am to 5:30 pm
⦿ Credit Cards » You can purchase your Angkor ticket with the following credit cards: Discover, Visa, Mastercard, Union Pay, JCB and Diners Club.
⦿ Cash » You can also make payment in cash with Cambodian Riel, US Dollars, Euros and Thai Baht. However, you will receive the change in riel.
⦿ ATM Machine » There are also ATM where you can draw money at the Angkor Wat Ticket Office. One of them is located beside a shop “Angkor Local Handicraft” below.
If the queue gets too long or while waiting for 5:00 pm to come, there are a few souvenir shops, namely duty-free shops around to keep yourself occupied there. There were also banners of night performance in Siem Reap where you can visit during the evening as part of the things to do in Siem Reap.
Here are the opening hours of the Angkor temples so you can fully make use of the expensive Angkor Wat admission ticket.
Kulen Mountain (US$5), Prasat Beng Mealea temple (US$20) and Koh Ker temple (US$15) are three exceptions not covered in the Angkor ticket entry. Therefore, you have to pay a separate fee for the visit. As for the rest stated in the table below, they are all covered inside the Angkor ticket. So, take your pick.
|Angkor Wat||Phnom Bakheng||Prasat Kravan||Baksei Chamkrong|
|Prasat Bei||East Mebon||Pre Rup||Banteay Srei|
|Ta Keo||Kbal Spean||Banteay Samre||Preah Khan|
|Srah Srang||Ta Prohm||Ta Som||Neak Pean|
|Phnom Bok||Phnom Krom||Chau Say Tevoda Temple||Thommanon Temple|
|Roluos Group Temples ☞||Bakong||Lolei||Preah Ko|
|Angkor Thom||Bayon||Royal Palace||Royal Terraces|
|Elephant Terrace||Terrace of Leper King||Phimeanakas||Baphuon|
|Prasat Suor Prat||Prasat Preah Palilay||North Khleang||South Gate, Victory Gate etc|
You have to keep your ticket with you at all times because there will be checks at every temple station. You will then get a punch on your Angkor Pass at the checkpoint.
Unless you are on a tight schedule and do not stay long in Siem Reap, I would recommend you to get a 3-day Angkor Pass. For all the temples around Angkor Wat vicinity, you will need more than a day to complete the sightseeing. The factor also depends on whether you can withstand the oppressive heat on certain months at 38 to 40°C to do a full-day tour. I’m not being sarcastic, but the heat there is unbearable with not many trees.
Angkor Archaeological Park is generally divided into 3 sections with an allocation of a few temples in each circuit. Thus, that is how the taxi and the tuk-tuk drivers charge you based on the temple tour package. I will explain more in the next post later about Angkor Archaeological Park and the circuit tours.
Therefore, it is advisable to split your temple visits into 2 or 3 days so that will leave you more time to explore other Siem Reap attractions besides the temples during the day. Furthermore, under the harsh weather, one would likely need some time to recuperate and cool down the body so that you can enjoy every moment of the magnificent monuments without rushing to complete the temple tour.
If you stay more than one week in Siem Reap and would like to also venture out of Angkor Park to visit other remote temples further away, then a 7-day visit entrance ticket would do wonder to your exploration. As seen from the list above and the map below, many days are required to cover as many temples visits as possible. Well, that depends also on how enthusiastic you are to visit most of them too.
