Travel to and around the Angkor Archaeological Park is extensively covered in its own article. The following is a discussion of travel with Siem Reap.
The city centre is fairly compact and flat.
Many guesthouses will lend you bicycles either for free or cheaply (USD1-3).
Motodops (motorbike taxi) abound and will make sure you know where they are. Rides within town should only cost USD0.50 or 2,000 riel, although prices can double at night or during bad weather. Agree a price first. Full day can be arranged for ~USD10. Helmets for passengers are rare though may materialize if requested in advance.
Renting a motorbike is prohibited for foreign travellers in Siem Reap, though motorbikes rented elsewhere are permitted.
Petrol stations vary from first world forecourts to roadside stalls selling fuel of dubious quality in drinks bottles.
Tuk-tuks, like motodops, will call at tourists from nearly any street corner.
A trip within Siem Reap should cost USD1 regardless of how many people pile on. Most tuk-tuks can convey four people comfortably though the extra weight can make the low-powered bikes laboriously slow. Prices can double at night or during bad weather.
Ensure both you and the driver are in crystal clear agreement on the destination and total fare before departure. Payment is made on arrival and doesn't increase if the driver got lost or had to take a circuitous route.
Cars with drivers can be hired for single or multiple days. While all drivers are familiar with the area and happy to suggest good routes, most speak little English and are not actual tour guides. Licensed tour guides charge USD45-50 per day for a driver and English speaking guide. Drivers will likely ask for USD5-10 extra for trips to further temples such as the those of the Big Circuit, Banteay Srey and more for remote sites like Beng Mealea.
The taxis (USD7 fixed cost) from the airport to Siem Reap proper may provide a full day of touring for USD25-30.
