An Angkor Wat Ticket, sometimes known as the Angkor Pass, is required for all visitors to the Angkor Archaeological Park except for Cambodian citizens. There are no discounts, no way to buy online, no exceptions and it will be checked at multiple times throughout your visit.
Where to Buy the Angkor Pass?
There is only one place to buy the Angkor Pass and that is at the Angkor Ticket Centre, also known as Angkor Enterprise. It’s located on the corner of Road 60 and the Apsara Road.
Usually, when you book a tour, your driver or tour guide will bring you to the ticket office along the way before entering the park. You will then continue your journey to the park along Apsara Road.
Angkor Wat Ticket Office Opening Hours
The ticket office is open 7 days a week and 52 weeks a year from 5:00am to 5:30pm. Public holidays and other factors don’t affect opening times.
Tickets issued after 5pm are valid for the next day. However, you can also use the ticket to get into the park on the same day for the last little bit of daylight. This is helpful if you want to see the sunset at Angkor Wat and then go to the temples on the next day.
Ticket Price & Entrance Fees
There are three types of passes available depending on how long you want to visit. If you are taking a multiple day tour, you should speak to your driver or tour guide about which ticket you should buy. Most people will just need the 1-day pass.
- 1-Day Pass $37
Valid for one day only.
- 3-Day Pass $62
Valid for any three days during a 10-day period. The 10-day period starts on the date of your first visit.
- 7-Day Pass $72
Valid for any seven days during a one-month period. The month starts on the date of your first visit.
The money raised from ticket sales are used for the upkeep of the park and the temples. For each ticket sold, a $2 contribution is made to the Kantha Bopha Children’s Hospital fund with hospitals located in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh.
The hospitals provide free healthcare for mothers during pregnancy and children up to the age of 16 years. In many cases, it is the only affordable healthcare option for many Cambodians.
How to Buy your Ticket
The process is very simple. Just go to one of the many booths and tell the operator how many days you want. You’ll then be asked to take your photo which is then printed on the card.
You can pay in cash – Khmer Riel, US Dollars, Euros and Thai Baht are all accepted. However, your change will only be given in Khmer Riel or US Dollars. There is are ATM machines on site if you need to get cash.
You can also pay by credit card with Visa, MasterCard, UnionPay, JCB, Discover and Diners Club cards accepted.

Visiting Hours & Opening Times
At the Angkor Ticket Office there are also other services available. There are some shops where you can buy clothes and souvenirs. You can also buy sunscreen and mosquito spray here which is helpful if you’ve forgotten yours. It’s also possible to buy hats, raincoats, bags and other small items.
