Siem Reap International Airport, Cambodia

Whilst Siem Reap itself is a fairly small town, the Siem Reap International Airport (REP) is the busiest transit hub in Cambodia, due to its proximity to the legendary ancient city of Angkor. Flying into this airport is ideal for any travellers that want to explore the charming township of Siem Reap, or the magical UNESCO-listed complex of temples built between the 9th and the 15th centuries by the Khmer Empire.

The airport isn’t huge, but the facilities will cover all the basics, with access to ATMs, a pharmacy, an information desk, and free WiFi throughout the terminal buildings. Added to that there is a beauty spa on site that is open from 8:00am until midnight seven days a week.

Grabbing a bite to eat is easy, as there are nine different eateries, from fast food restaurants, sit-down dining and coffee bars to pick up food from. There is also a decent selection of shops, including a duty-free store, where you can amuse yourself, or pick up some gifts while you are transiting through the airport.

Airlines that typically fly to Siem Reap from Australia are Singapore Airlines, Thomson Airways, Emirates, Korean Air, Qantas, Cebu Pacific, China Eastern, Thai Airways, Vietnam Airlines, SilkAir, Jetstar Asia, Malaysia Airlines, China Southern and Bangkok Airways. Flights from any city in Australia will mean encountering layovers in either Singapore (SIN), Manila (MNL), Ho Chi Minh City (SGN), Hong Kong (HKG), or Bangkok (BKK).

 Getting To & From the Airport

Taxi hide 

Taxis can be found outside the terminal building. Fares are charged differently depending on the type of vehicle chosen – a normal taxi or a van taxi. Travellers moving in groups of more than three should opt for van taxis, as it may prove a tight squeeze in the regular taxi. Travellers may also hail a 'tuk tuk', which is a cheaper alternative to taxis. However, be wary of drivers who try to scam travellers by quoting ridiculously high prices. Some might also push packages such as temple tours and charge expensive prices for these.
