1 day ticket from $20 up to $37
3 day ticket from $40 up to $62

Numerous news sources reporting this today - Google it ;-)

So one year after the ticket sales returned to government (rather than private company) control, with the promise that rates wouldn't go up... they nearly double for a one-day pass. I just hope the money is indeed being collected and used "transparently", as the government promised.....

Yep, I imagine the transparency of these extra funds will render them invisible to most people

I love holidaying in Siem Reap I have been twice before 2015 and 2016, and although Angkor Wat is amazing at the increased rates for Park entrance fees I doubt I will go to Angkor Park on my next visit this year in July 2017. I will just enjoy the daily life in Siem Reap and it's surroundings.

So sad but I feel many return visitors may do the same but hope they can afford the increased fees and visit Angkor Park.

These days the only reason to re-visit Siem Reap is to go to Angkor Wat, the town is not my cup of tea. 20 years ago I loved the town but that was then.

I haven't been to Siem Reap in about ten years but even then it was going the way of the Khao San Rd, at least bar-wise, don't think I'd like it now but would love to be proven wrong, as in my previous visits I loved the laid back vibe of the town
