Getting from Siem Reap Airport to Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world. It is an archaeological park consisting of temples, which attracts millions of tourists each year and has become Cambodia’s top tourist destination.

The distance from Siem Reap International Airport to Angkor Wat is 6 km. To get there, there are two options; taxi and remork (the local tuk tuk). An airport taxi is the fastest and most stress-free way to reach Angkor Wat. The ride costs €10 (KHR 42,000) and takes around 10 minutes. The remork, on the other hand, is slightly more affordable, at €8 (KHR 33,500) per ride, taking more or less the same amount of time to get you from the airport of Siem Reap to Angkor Wat.

*The average waiting time for a remork at the airport is 5-10 minutes, but it all depends on the number of passengers.

Value for money

Remorks are available 24/7 at Siem Reap airport.

Where do I get the remork from?

In Siem Reap airport, there are two ranks of remorks. The Airport Remork Syndicate operates the first one, and it comprises the remorks lining up just outside the arrivals hall exit. The second one is a line of remorks waiting to board passengers outside the airport entrance.


Remorks are not the most comfortable vehicle you will find out there. Legroom is limited, and passengers cannot fit too many baggage items. Plus, as a remork is an open-type rickshaw, cars passing by on dirt roads could create a significant amount of dust.

Editor’s Note

The passenger carriage of a remork is covered in most cases, so that travellers do not get soaking wet in the frequent tropical rains of Cambodia.

Useful Tips

Make sure you have some cash to pay for your fare, which can be either Cambodian Riel or US dollars.
Your hotel or accommodation can arrange for a remork to come and pick you up at the airport.
Cambodians are kind, hard-working people. A tip, though not mandatory, is always greatly appreciated.
