We are looking to come to cambodia in April...we love the look of Siem Reap and have decided to stay there for our entire trip of 13 days. My question is ...We are a couple in our early 50's,We will eat out every night,sample a few drinks in pub Street,have a snack for lunch and partake in a few trips ....could someone please give me an idea of how much spending money we would need????

Hotel already paid for so just a rough daily budget would be great .

Thanks Again Lynne

Meals, anywhere between $3 and $20 each: the $20 variety would be in a fairly upmarket place. Drinks, from 50 cents for beer up to around 3-5 dollars for cocktails. Bottles of spirits in the shops around $10 each.

You can live like kings very cheaply in Cambodia. De Facto currency is the $US.

If breakfast is including in your hotel, then you can easily dine out for $25 a day and eat well, depends on your taste for cocktails ( Happy hour is good) then add tuk tuks up to $15 to $20 a day for temples, but more for further out temples, im not sure on price for around town but has to be under $5, hopefully someone can answer that, most tourists places are within walking distance of each other anyway. Temple pass's are $40 for three days there are one day $20 and 7 days as well.

Start at $55 you can most certainly do it for that!!

Been there a few times and AnnG62 has given a very good estimate of costs and what it will get you. I agree with it.
