Airport Transfer Siem Reap International Airport

If you plan to arrange an airport transfer on arrival at Siem Reap airport, you will likely be faced by a barrage of tuk tuk and taxi drivers and will need to negotiate hard. Your driver will also wish to strike a deal with you for your Angkor Wat tours over coming days. Some will offer a “free” transfer on condition that he is your driver for your visit to the temple complex.

We recommend you have an airport transfer booked in advance from Siem Reap Airport to your hotel, because the process of arranging drivers in Siem Reap can be troublesome.

  1. Hi Alyson (and Family!)
    I have used your site previously for planning my family trip to Vietnam in 2019. It was a fabulous holiday, full of fun and adventure so I’ll be using it again for our upcoming journey to Cambodia and Thailand this (2023/24) Summer. What a simply wonderful resource you have provided! I know it must be tough sometimes when your family members are relaxing by the pool and you are hunched over your computer, remembering the stinking room full of mosquitos you just vacated.
    The upside of course is that you’re seeing the world. With your family. How very lucky you are and how very lucky we are to be able to vicariously share your journey with you. Many, many thanks from this ex-pat Aussie living in NZ and looking forward to seeing a little more of the world through your (and my!) eyes.

    • Cheers Phil, My Cambodia content is a bit thin on the ground, we’ve only spent about a month there in the last 10 years, but I plan to be back there soon. LOADS of Thailand though, we’re always in Thailand. I generally work in the very early mornings when the kids are still asleep, it’s never got in the way of anything else. Stinking rooms full of mozzies are rare too, but I know the one you mean, that forst night in Siem Reap – ugg.
