The Angkor Wat Pass

Angkor Wat passes aren’t exactly cheap, but they are worth it. You get access to all of the Angkor temples by purchasing the pass, with the exception of Phnom Kulen and Beng Mealea. There are rules, including fines and so forth, but if you keep your Angkor pass with you at all times you needn't worry about those.
Prices and regulations Here are the prices as of 1st February 2017:

The Angkor Institution, the ad hoc agency that manages ticketing for Angkor Wat Archaeological Park, announced on Friday that it would nearly double the entrance fee that foreigners must pay for one-day visits to the ancient temple complex near Siem Reap. Starting February 1, 2017, the cost of the one-day pass will increase to $37, from the current $20, it said.

Ticket prices will also rise for a three-day pass to $62, from the current $40, while a week-long visit pass – valid over a one-month period – will cost $72, from the current $60.

Ho Vandy, secretary-general of Cambodia’s National Tourism Alliance, blasted the Angkor Institution for failing to adequately explain the steep ticket price increase to tourism industry stakeholders.

 
Free pass

Since the Angkor temples officially close at sunset, you will get a free 'day' if you buy your ticket after 5 p.m. So even though you get a few hours to see the temple on the day you purchase your ticket, the official day count won't begin until the next day. 

You can use these few extra hours however you choose, although most people use it to watch an extra Angkor temple sunset For sunset, you have at least three temples to choose from: Angkor Wat,Phnom Bakheng, or Pre Rup.

The Angkor pass

You’ll also have to make sure that you keep your ticket in good condition. This can be a bit of a challenge since the paper they print your pass on is not the sturdiest. A tear or a rip, they say, will make your ticket invalid. 

This sounds too strict, and I wonder if they really make a big deal out of a small tear. I have not tested this so I’d be interested to know if you have.

 The front side has dates of validity.

Back side of ticket, same rules printed.


Tourists with big tours usually insert their passes into a name badge protector, and that is a great idea. If you don’t want to bother with the extra hassle though, just keep it in between your guidebooks or other flat, protective objects. 

But this in itself is a hassle, because the attendants will ask you to show your ticket every time you enter a popular temple. So make sure you have your ticket within easy reach, that way you won’t have to open and close your bag each time you enter a new temple.

So in short...

Don't forget about the free day access that you can get when you buy your ticket at 5 p.m. If you're only getting a 1-day pass the few extra hours is such a great bonus. 

Also, keep the pass with you at all times while visiting and keep it in good condition. That way you shouldn't have any problems enjoying Angkor Wat and the other Angkor temples, and you won't have to worry about fines and such.

The Angkor Wat Temple In Cambodia
Have you seen the inside of the Angkor Wat temple? Have you seen the detailed bas-relief and decorations that adorn almost every wall? Or the steep staircases made even more precarious by age?

Biking to the Ankor temples
Biking to see the Angkor Wat temples is a unique way to experience the temples. If you have a respectable level of fitness, I highly recommend using bikes to visit the Angkor temples.
