Angkor Wat Itinerary: 1 Day, 2 Days, or 3 Days?
There are three potential Angkor Wat itineraries: 1 Day, 2 Days, or 3 Days.
If you have only one day in Angkor Wat, I recommend that you take Day 1 Itinerary, the Inner Circle Tour. If you have 2 days in Angkor Wat, I recommend you take the 2 Day Itinerary, the Inner Circle Itinerary on Day 1 and the Outer Circle Itinerary on Day 2. If you have three days, I recommend you add the Day 3 Itinerary to Days 1 and 2.
If possible, the Inner Circle Tour should be taken on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. Those are the busiest temples so it is better if you visit them on the slowest days.
There are Tuk-Tuks everywhere in Siem Reap. They will charge you about $15 per day to take you everywhere including gas. We tipped our driver and bought him lunch too.
Park Entry Passes
There are three kinds of park passes, 1 Day, 3 Days, or 7 Days.
One Day Pass: You buy your park passes here. The first-day tour includes watching the sunrise over Angkor Wat from the west side of Angkor Wat Temple. Check the Sunrise Time the night before and arrange to be at the Ticket Office no later than 1.5 hours before sunrise.
Three Day Pass: If you buy the 3-day pass, you will have one week to use up all three days.
Seven Day Pass: If you buy the 7-day pass, you will have a month to use up all 7 days.
