Siem Reap International Airport

Being the second largest airport in Cambodia, Siem Reap International Airport welcomes just a little less passengers than Phnom Penh International Airport. However, visitor numbers are constantly increasing for both airports, thanks to the booming tourism industry in South East Asia and in Cambodia in particular.

Located 8km out of the city center but only 3 km from the magnificent Angkor Wat, watch from the window during the landing to get a fantastic view of this unique site from the 12th century.
