buying angkor wat ticket

Will there be a long line up to buy a ticket at around 8 am or so? How fast does the line move?

Lines will be fairly long for the one and three day tickets - but it's amazing how quickly they move through.

Get your ticket in the late afternoon of the day before and avoid queues and get a bonus free admission that evening.

Best regards. Ian

About the only time of day you will not find lines is mid-day. Lines in late afternoon were similar to those we found in the morning - but as in the morning, they tended to move rather quickly.

Just got back - we went the morning of to get 3 day tickets and waited about 5 minutes (on January 2), so my experience was it was no problem.

We went around 4.30 pm and there were no queues but they wouldn't sell us tickets until 5pm, as we were buying 3 day passes that we could use for a free sunset visit on the day an then stil be valid for 3 days.

We went for early morning sun-rise when the crowds are crazy but still there were many windows and the queues were negligible. We didnt have to wait much at all...3-4 minutes tops to get 2 tickets (3-day tickets; valid for a week) and off we went.....

At the Angkor Wat itself....different story! Thousands like us...and the sun-rise wasn't that spectacular either!

just got back from SM, had to go twice to buy tickets, once at around 9.00am and another time at 7.30 am. both times it did not take more than 3 mins. These are tickets that have your photo on them that is taken via the cameras at the booths so you have to be there in person to buy your ticket.
