Things to know before your visit to Angkor Wat
- Dress Appropriately – Angkor Wat is a religious site and an appriopriate dress code is required. For both guys and gals, shoulders and knees should be covered. Don’t be a dick and please be mindful and respectful when entering the temples. A hat might be a good idea against the scorching sun.
- Wear comfy shoes – you’ll be walking over roots and other vegetation as well as climbing multiple sets of stairs during your visit. It will be a much more agreable visit if you wear some comfy sneakers.
- Bring lots of water – you’ll be very active in the oppressive Cambodian heat so bring lots of water to remain hydrated.
- Don’t buy anything from children – you’ll encounter lots of children trying to sell you bracelets, shawls or water. Yes, these kids are very cute and it’s understandable that you want to help but you’re not doing them any favours by doing so. Children belong in school or should play, not be sent to work.
- Make clear arrangements with your tuk-tuk driver – A visit to the temples of Angkor looks looks different for everyone. So make sure you’re aligned with your tuktuk driver on which temples you want to visit and in what order. Negotiate the price beforehand so everyone knows exactly what is expected. Oh, and be sure you know what your tuk-tuk and driver look like. When you exit a temple and 50 other tuk-tuk drivers are waiting for their customers, it would be a shame to waste precious time because you can’t find him.
