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!

What people are saying about Siem Reap

Truly Informative Guided 4 Day Tour Angkor Wat & Siem Reap Recommend

We had taken a lot of time to research our trip to Angkor Wat and Siem Reap. Important to us was, Deep knowledge by a guide that would be with us. A suggested program over days, clear inclusions and exclusions. Transport via a comfortable, safe air-condition transport not a Tuk Tuk. Flexibility in the tour during the days if weather or circumstances of location or personal change. Tour company to include Transport and Guide as one package. Tours over 3 or 4 days offering. Cost competitive. After much comparison of Tuk Tuk drivers, established international brands offering tours, local tours and recommendations from friends we settled on "Get Your Guide".. Why? Great Tour Guide "Sar" and the only one 4 days for the same price as some of the 3 days. The itinerary was detailed and included a full description of the Tours. The 3-day pass was ideal, picked up the late afternoon and used for the sunset, perfect in this instance. We would suggest 4 days if time permits..

Perfect guide for exploring the temples around Angkor Wat

We booked a two days tour with Sarak to visit the temples around Siem Reap. We had our tour in the rainy season on Sept 18th and 19th with Sarak and a driver. It was a perfect experience, Sarak speaks very good English and is very knowledgable in the history of Cambodia and the temples. He did not overload us with information, but focused on the essential facts. We were lucky with the weather, it rained sometimes, but mostly when we were driving or gaving lunch. Sarak has a good camera and and excellent eye for good camera perspectives, which he shares very openly. We can only recommend to book a tour with him.

Very good experience and value for money.

Scheduling this tour was easy and reasonably priced. The tour company was quick to confirm and arrange for pickup time and hotel location. There were only 5 of us which was great. The van was comfortable and had ac as well as chilled water bottles and towels. Our driver Mong was good and he always make sure that cold waters and cold towels our available once we are back in the van. Our tour guide Sok Chea was wonderful. He’s very knowledgeable and speaks English clearly and understandably. He knows where best location for good picture. He also help other tourists for the picture. I would highly recommend him.

Angkor Wat Temple Hopping Tour with Sunset Reviewed by Annie, 21/09/2019

Really lovely evening spent relaxing on a boat w/ drinks and sunset

We really enjoyed this activity. It gave us a glimpse of Cambodian life we would not otherwise have seen, specifically the floating village and lotus farms. The dinner on the boat was relaxing. The boat does not really cruise but floats along. We enjoyed sitting in the hammocks with a drink in hand, making for a very pleasant experience. The dinner includes simple dishes, and was filling although some people opted to diner after (it’s also an early dinner). I would recommend this activity highly - very relaxing.

Sunset Dinner Tour: Tonle Sap Lake Floating Village Reviewed by Anonymous, 02/09/2019

Great tour all round and fab way to see the temples.

Fabulous tour and great guide - Phal was super helpful and knowledgeable about the temples. His whole goal was to see us satisfied with what we saw. The driver provided us with ice cold towels and water in between temples and always saw we got there safely and in a timely manner. Other tours don’t cover all the older cute little temples which I actually enjoyed more so I highly recommend this tour.
