1. No reason to spend so much more to get a ticket on-line. They are easy enough to obtain while at Angkor Wat!

      1. You make sound like one has to buy tickets online to avoid lines at tickets counters. Which isn’t true at all. In our 2 visits we experienced no significant lines at 5AM or 8AM. Second the one day ticket is not really good for 2 days. You can purchase a ticket and use on the afternoon of the day you purchased it. That is a courtesy admission. But in that situation your ticket then is only good the next day. Not another full day.

          1. I’ll carry it further! Many hotels obtain special ticketing arrangements with the Angkor Enterprise. Do you really think guests staying at the Park Hyatt, etc., wait in the regular lines? Our guide, who we used on 2 different trips, separated by years, took us to that special line. We did not wait either trip.

            Nor do you address that buying tickets in advance, leaves one with unrefundable tickets, in case they cancel their trip. A family of 4, could have a loss of over $250 US. Not a small sum.

        1. Perhaps I should mention at this point that I write this blog with a lot of love in my little spare time for people who appreciate it. And yes, it can happen a few things are not quite up to date. But: I don’t write for people who behave as if they are something special.

          And no, for people who don’t stay at the Park Hyatt & Co. there is no refund for the Angkor ticket. And yes, I have had this experience.

          1. Wow! Just wow!

            I don’t present myself as an “expert”. But you do! That is the issue here. Not mentioning that tickets are non-refundable, is a serious omission. Instead of saying, gee thanks, I’ll add that info. You go defensive, and blame me! I furthermore, never mentioned my credentials, because I shouldn’t have to. And saying that I am special is an insult, that one does expect a blog writer to post about an unknown reader.

            Have a good life!

        2. Hi John,

          oh, shame on me! I did not read correctly. Sorry for that. You meant, that tickets are not refundable. I’ve read in your comment, that they are refundable. I corrected and also added in the article. But: The way you write, does’nt feel pleasant to me.

          For example, you write: “Nor do you address that buying tickets in advance, leaves one with unrefundable tickets, in case they cancel their trip. A family of 4, could have a loss of over $250 US. Not a small sum.”

          You think it’s a well-intentioned hint, and I should be thankful. But that’s not for me. Yes, I can imagine that it is annoying not to get the Angkor ticket refunded. But it’s not my duty to report on that. You can think about such things in advance and then research them online, ask questions and so on. What you are doing is just complaining about how bad my article is. There is no respect from you that someone like me is taking the time to make information available free of charge.

          How about if you would comment like:

          “Hey, thank you for the article and your information. But there is another point that could be important for your readers. There is no way to get your Angkor ticket refunded if you can’t make the trip. And that can be quite expensive, especially for a family. Maybe you like to add in your article.”

          I hope, you understand, what I mean.

          However: Whish you all the best and a really nice Christmas Time :)

  2. Instructions are super clear! Can’t wait to bring my pass to Angkor Park! Although the lines in the morning move fast, better to buy it in advance so that we don’t have to go through the crazy rush!

  3. Very good information! I especially searched for some details about the necessity of printing the pdf-tickets and you answered it and also your information about the photos – trying three or four times – was very helpful. Additionally it is perhaps good to mention that the maximum photo upload size is 2 MB.
