Explore Angkor's Khmer civilization in Siem Reap, Cambodia—a UNESCO gem. Opt for a private tour and buy Angkor Pass online for flexible exploration of historic ruins.
The ruins of Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and their surroundings spread around Siem Reap in Cambodia belong to the so-called Khmer civilization. Among the many UNESCO World Heritage Sites, it can be considered as one of the best.
This WEB-site was created based on a trip to Siem Reap for about two weeks in August 2013, and my visit to the Angkor ruins using a tuk-tuk (motorcycle taxi).
I think there is no one who visits Angkor ruins without visiting Angkor Wat and Bayon. However, there are some other ruins that we recommend. Even though I didn't know the names of the ruins until I actually visited them, there were many places that I thought were worth seeing. Please use this site as a reference to build your own trip to the Angkor ruins.
To visit the Angkor ruins, I recommend a private tour rather than a packaged tour from your country. There are so many local tours available for every corner of Angkor Ruins.
Online admission ticket for Angkor Wat (Angkor Pass)
An admission ticket, so-called Angkor Pass is required to tour the Angkor ruins. There is just one ticket counter available. So I recommend you to purchase Angkor Pass online (online purchase from here).
There are 1-day, 3-day, and 7-day tickets. The 7-day ticket is further divided into a 7-day ticket and a 30-day valid ticket. If you buy a 7-day ticket, I think it's a good way to visit many ruins at your leisure.
