FRI­DAY’S TIPS FOR A GREAT VISIT TO CAM­BO­DIA

Friday - - Travel -

Angkor Wat is big­ger than Malta and tem­ple fa­tigue is a very real thing.

Trans­port op­tions to Angkor Wat from Siem Reap in­clude coach, pri­vately hired tuk-tuk or bi­cy­cle. Tick­ets to Angkor Wat are avail­able on a one-, three- and five-day ba­sis, with the three- and five-day tick­ets recommended if you have more than five tem­ples on your bucket list.

Check the lat­est health ad­vice with your doc­tor as parts of Cam­bo­dia have ex­pe­ri­enced out­breaks of malaria.

Al­though the Cam­bo­dian riel is used, most trans­ac­tions hap­pen in US dol­lars.

En­try visas cost $30 on ar­rival. There is no photo booth in the air­port, so carry a small num­ber of pass­port pictures with you.

Cur­rently, Ph­nom Penh air­port closes overnight. If booked to de­part on the first flights of the day, do not ar­rive at the air­port be­fore 5am.
