Siem Reap

Get around


On foot

Siem Reap’s town centre is fairly compact, and many places can be reached by walking.

Tuk-tuks and motorcycle taxis

A good option for a short trip across Siem Reap is by tuk-tuk or motorcycle taxi (motodop). It rarely takes long to find a ride; just walk towards a street corner to be greeted by calls of “Tuk-tuk? Moto?”. Most drivers in Siem Reap have a fair command of English. Expect to pay at least $2 for a short trip by tuk-tuk and agree the price before getting in. Motorcycle taxis will charge less but can be a slightly hair-raising experience as they weave casually in and out of traffic.

Bicycle rental

It’s cheap and easy to get around Siem Reap by bicycle. Many hostels and guesthouses have bicycles for hire; a standard pushbike with a basket can cost as little as $1 a day, or a mountain bike from $3.

E-bike rental

An eco-friendly option is to hire an electric “e-bike”, which is a battery-powered bicycle. A full charge powers the bicycle for 40km, which is enough for a trip around the temples and back. The e-bike has a modest top speed of 20km/h.
