Getting Around the Temples and Town
Siem Reap city is almost small enough to get around on foot, but not quite. The Angkor Park entrance is 4 kilometers from town and the temples inside the park are as much as 3-4 kilometers apart, ordinarily requiring some sort of transportation to tour. Tuk-tuks, and car taxis are the most popular forms of transportation. In town it’s always easy to find tuk-tuks and motodups for short trips. Transportation to and around the temples is usually hired by the day. To avoid later misunderstandings make sure to negotiate the details of the driver’s services carefully – exact price, what times you expect the day to begin/end, availability during lunch hours, limitations on your itinerary, extra charges for temple on the ‘Grand Circuit’ or distant temples, etc.
