Travel Information

Visas

Visitors from Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Lao PDR, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam do not need a visa. Most others can get it from the airport at arrival. Just get the form from the counter, fill it and submit it along with the visa fee (20USD). You can also apply for the visa online. You will have to upload your details and a photograph. Keep your credit card ready for online payment. The visa will be sent to you via email. Remember to take 2 printouts of the eVisa. You will show one when you enter and the other one when you exit. The E-visa costs USD 25 and it is processed in 3 days or less.

Airlines and getting there : Please check Siem Reap Travel Guide

There are direct fly to Siem Reap from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Vientiane, Hanoi, Hong Kong and some other Asian cities.

Internet and mobile

Most hotels/guesthouses and cafes have free wi-fi. Almost all the mobile providers will sell you a SIM card with 3G access. Some of them need you to make a call or send an SMS to activate the date. The mobile date access is inexpensive (about USD 1 or 2 per day). Just walk into a mobile shop and ask the sales person to show you the options they have. You will need a passport to get a new SIM card.

Money and costs

There is a good choice of food available and you can get by 5 to 10 USD/day. You can use ATMs to withdraw money in USD. So you don’t need to carry many moneys on you. US currency is in wide circulation and if you are brining US$, get small denominations. For local transport you can use inexpensive motos (motorbike taxis) and Tuk Tuks. From the riverside to the barcamp venue should cost you 0.5 to 1 USD by Tuk Tuk. The night market and old market is close to the BarCamp Angkor venue so you can pick up souvenirs from there.

Bus Information:

Click here to check bus schedule, price and company name from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap. As our experience bus company named “Capitol” is good enough and its arrival destination (in Siem Reap) is in central of the town (near Angkor Night Market) and in front of this bus station is Reaksmey Chanreas hotel. So, mean that when you leave bus station just cross the street you will reach the hotel.

Accommodation Information:

We strongly recommend you to stay at the hotel around Night Market (Check it out), it easy for you to walk at night to pub street where a lot of food and drink and you can experience with fish message. This area is not so far from Build Bright University, just ask Tuk Tuk or motor taxi you will get to this university easily.
