New Opening Hours at the Temples of Angkor

Angkor Wat, Cambodia

Angkor Wat, Cambodia

There has been some confusion as to the implementation of new opening hours at the Temples of Angkor, due to come into effect on 1 January 2016. Hanuman has been in touch with the team at the top to clarify the situation.

Angkor Wat will be open from 5.00am to 5.30pm, although the upper level of Bakan Sanctuary will only open from 7.30am.

Sra Srang will be open from 5.00am to 5.30pm.

Pre Rup will be open from 5.00am to 7.00pm.

Phnom Bakheng will be open from 5.00am to 7.00pm.

All others temples will be open from 7.30am to 5.30pm.

So in summary, Angkor Wat, Phnom Bakheng, Pre Rup and Sra Srang are open for sunrise. Phnom Bakheng and Pre Rup are open for sunset.

However, it is unlikely there will be any restrictions on watching sunset at Sra Srang or Western Baray for example.

There are plans in the works to offer some sort of premium access to key temples at dawn such as Bayon and Ta Prohm.
