Flights to Siem Reap International Airport

Though it doesn’t serve the capital city Phnom Penh, Siem Reap International Airport is the busiest airport in Cambodia and the main gateway through which international travellers enter Siem Reap. One of the world’s most well-known holiday areas, Siem Reap is home to a spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Angkorian ruins, remains of the decadent ancient capital of the Khmer Empire.

Siem Reap International Airport was constructed in the local Khmer style and features high pointed ceilings. The airport is separated into 2 passenger terminals, one handling domestic connections and the other, international flights. The airport is served by a variety of major Asian airlines such as AirAsia, Jetstar Airways, Silkair and China Eastern Airlines, and therefore offers direct air connections to numerous cities within Asia such as Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Getting around

Siem Reap International Airport is situated around 7 kilometres from the heart of Siem Reap. Most of the city’s major hotels and resorts offer free airport transfers for their guests, but travel-lers in need of transportation to town can also grab a taxi easily from the airport. Simply visit the taxi booth outside the airport terminal and prepay for a ride to the city - expect a fare of about SGD 9.80 (USD 7). The journey should take about 15 minutes.

What to see and do

Though the Angkor Wat is by far the most popular temple - being named the world’s largest religious monument naturally brings a fair amount of fame - the rest of the Angkorian ruins should not be passed over. After you’ve ticked the grand-daddy Angkor Wat off your bucket list make sure to check out Ta Prohm Temple. Constructed sometime in the 12th century Ta Prohm boasts amazing architecture, but what catches most people’s eyes are the sinewy, massive tree branches that wind around, through and under the stone of the temple. Though the trees may look like invaders in this sacred compound, they’ve been around for so long that a symbiotic relationship has since developed. The extensive, thick tree roots actually help stabilise the temple’s foundations today, and the thick branches hold up the walls.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Ta Prohm was catapulted to Hollywood fame in the early 2000s by Angelina Jolie, having served as the background to Lara Croft: Tomb Raider’s hijinks.
