Getting a taxi from the airport is the best option. You can get to the city centre in just 20 minutes and expect to pay the fixed rate of $15 for a 3-passenger taxi.
A tuk-tuk ride from the airport takes around 20 minutes and is a good way to start sightseeing around the city. However, a tuk-tuk does not provide a lot of legroom. The tuk-tuk fits only 1-4 passengers and there is not a lot of space for your backpack or suitcase.
While it is not the most comfortable, the cheapest option when travelling alone is a motorbike taxi. You can find motorbike taxis at the airport and they can bring you to town for $9.
From/To Siem Reap Airport by Taxi
There is a taxi stand just outside Siem Reap Airport. You can book a taxi at the airport taxi service counter for $15 and the ride to the city centre takes about 20 minutes.
If you’re travelling in a group of more than 4 people, you can book a private van. Rates start from $18 and they seat up to 6 passengers.

Another option is to check PassApp or Grab to book a taxi via your phone. Fares start from $10 with Grab, but bear in mind that fares can vary throughout the day with these taxi apps.
From/To Siem Reap Airport by Tuk-tuk
If you want to try local transportation, you can take a tuk-tuk outside the airport. These airport tuk-tuks charge a fixed rate of $9 to the city centre.
The tuk-tuks at the parking exit of the airport usually offer cheaper rates. Negotiate for a good deal and expect to pay $4-$6 to the centre. You’ll find the same rates when you book with taxi apps like Grab.
Some hotels also offer free pick-up services, so don’t forget to check with your accommodation. Better yet, you can book a tuk-tuk online and just pay $5 for the entire vehicle.
Tip: Keep your luggage inside the tuk-tuk. It doesn’t happen often, but there have been a few cases in that thieves try to steal bags from the tuk-tuk while passing by on their motorbikes.
From/To Siem Reap Airport by Motorbike Taxi
A motorbike taxi is a good option for solo backpackers who like the thrill of a motorbike ride. If you are travelling in a group or carrying a lot of luggage, we recommend taking a taxi or a tuk-tuk instead.
You can find the motorbikes near the taxi stand and book them at the airport taxi service counter for $9.
The motorbikes parked at the exit of the airport are also cheaper. Note that some drivers tend to overcharge tourists, so make sure to agree on a fare before riding.
Although most rides go without accidents, we’d like to remind you that jumping on the back of a motorbike is not the safest option. Also, don’t carry your backpack on your back as there have been some cases of bag snatching.

Pass’app 3 $ with tip from Siem Reap town to airport !!
Thanks for this suggestion! I added in the text, but couldn’t find it myself as cheap as $3. It showed me an estimated fare of 24.000 KR ($6). Still cheaper than ordering a taxi at the counter though!
