When to fly to Siem Reap
November to March is considered the best time to visit the tropical city of Siem Reap. The daytime temperatures stay below 30ºC, and nights are pleasantly comfortable. With the rainy season yet to start, tourists can enjoy the entire day of uninterrupted sightseeing. However, if you are travelling on a budget, consider visiting from June to October. With heavy rainfall during the day, this is the off-season when prices are at their lowest. The monsoons have their own charm - the city is at its pristine best, and one can enjoy without the thronging crowds. While the afternoon rains can be inconvenient, you still have the entire morning to go exploring. So, depending on your preference, you can visit Siem Reap any time of the year.
Getting around Siem Reap
Once there, the city provides many options for you to get around. The easiest way of doing this is by hiring a bicycle. This gives you the flexibility to see as much as you want in a day, at inexpensive rates. Bigger groups can hire cars and jeeps, but these are more expensive. Tuk-tuks and motodops are widely available, and a drop around the city will not break the bank. Since the rates change depending on demand, it's best to agree a price before you start. You can even hire these vehicles for the entire day. With so many options, it is extremely easy to explore Siem Reap to the fullest.
