How to get into the city from the Siem Reap International Airport

  • From SRIA, there is no public transportation to get into town, only private transportations
  • I found SRIA to be actually very organized and not a chaotic airport like Bali. Getting a ride into town was very simple
  • The official transportation options are 1. taxis, 2. tuk tuks, 3. vans, and 4. motorcycles:
  • There is a counter inside the terminal building after you pick up your luggage that sell ticket for all of these options
  • You buy the ticket at the counter to any hotel in Siem Reap, and fare is fixed. Then you simply give the ticket to the driver outside who will take you to your destination
  • Official fares:
  • Taxi (seats 4 people): $10 USD
  • Van (seats 6 people): $15 USD
  • Tuk tuks (seats 4 people) $9 USD
  • Motorcycle: $9 USD
  • You can check the latest fares on SRIA Tourist Transport Association's website: http://siemreap-airporttaxi.com/transportation.html&lang=en
  • Like most other places that cater to tourists in Cambodia, you can pay with cash USD. But they want your notes to be in good condition
  • I recommend taking either taxis or vans because it's safer and more comfortable, and only $1 USD more expensive
  • Unofficially, you can use apps to hail cheap taxis for much cheaper
  • PassApp Cambodia: very cheap way to get taxis and tuk tuks from SRIA to the city ($3-$6 USD). You can also use it to get cars to get around Siem Reap with this app too
  • iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/passapp-book-taxi-in-cambodia/id1154130899
  • Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.multibrains.taxi.passenger.passapptaxis&hl=en
  • Grab: the massively popular taxi hailing app in many countries in Southeast Asia. They often have discount codes that you can use to get discounted or even free rides. Prices on Grab is similar to PassApp
  • https://www.grab.com
  • To use these apps you need to download them onto your smartphone, create an account, and connect to SRIA's free wifi
  • Finally, you should always check if your hotel provides free or cheap pickup services from the airport. Some do and some don't, so it's best to check
