FAQ


  Getting around

What is the best way to get around in Cambodia?

During daytime in Phnom Penh, walking is probably the best way to enjoy the city.  Generally, from almost anywhere in Phnom Penh, a walk to Wat Phnom takes about a good 30 to 45 minutes at a reasonable pace. Although moto-dops (motor cycle taxis) are inexpensive and plentiful, try to spend at least some time walking around the city.  There are also the tuk-tuks if you are moving around in a group of more than two. Negotiate your fare before you get on the ride so that there is no haggling when you reach your destination. The drivers usually speak some English. You can also ring for a metered taxi which is usually air-conditioned. Your hotel can help you with the booking.

In Siem Reap, moto-dops and tuk-tuks are also plentiful. Siem Reap is a small town, so rides usually don’t cost more than a dollar or two within the town itself. However, you can also book these vehicles by the day and negotiate a day rate with the drivers.

  Getting there and away

How do I get from Cambodian airports into town?

Both the Phnom Penh and Siem Reap international airports have taxis outside to take you anywhere downtown.  There is no public transport from either airport into town at the moment.  Taxi fare from Siem Reap into town usually costs around US $5 to US $7; in Phnom Penh, the fare from the airport to town may cost between US $7 to $10 depending on the hour of the day.

In Siem Reap, moto-dops and tuk-tuks are plentiful. Siem Reap is a small town, so rides usually don't cost more than a dollar or two within the town itself. However, you can also book these vehicles by the day and negotiate on a day-rate with the drivers.

  Money Matters

Are credit cards accepted in Cambodia?

Not generally, but most hotels, upscale restaurants, and bars accept credit cards.  Local restaurants and shops prefer cash. In cases where you can use a credit card, do expect to be charged a 3% surcharge.
