Where can I find a tour guide and how much does it cost?
If you want to visit Angkor with a tour guide, be aware that only official guides are admitted. Tuk-tuk drivers are not licensed guides.
You can find a tour guide at travel agencies and tour guide associations. The costs depend on the spoken language.

At the moment, there is no limited access to the temples except for Phnom Bakheng and the Bakan (the central tower of Angkor Wat). The number of people who can access to these temples is restricted to 300 visitors for Phnom Bakheng and 100 visitors to the Bakan at the same time. This limited carrying-capacity aims at preserving the temples and ensuring the safety of all visitors.

What mode of transport should I use to visit Angkor Park? How much does it cost?
There are several modes of transport allowed inside the site, from bicycles to air-conditioned vehicles. Most hotel staffs will be able to assist you.
To smell the forest and listen to birds and cicadas, discover the temples by “3-wheel remork” (tuk tuk) and bicycle!
- Car taxi (3-4 seats): $25-30/day. The most comfortable mean of transportation, with air-conditioning.
- 3-wheel remork: $12-15/day. This is the most used mode of transport to discover Angkor. For max 4 persons.
- Motorcycle taxi (Motodup): $8-10/day. This mean of transportation is not very comfortable especially for long distances.
- Bicycle: $2-3/day. There are many cycle paths, the ground flat makes it easy to pedal but pay attention to the heat.
Be aware that you will have to pay more for the remote sites such as Banteay Srei, Kbal Spean or Phnom Krom. To avoid misunderstanding, negotiate all the details of the driver’s services carefully.
