I frequently travel to SE Asia for business, and have decided that I would like to explore the area a bit more. I expolred the island of Borneo a few months back, and before I select a date to explore Angkor Wat, I want to see if anyone in the group is interested in going. I'm guessing that I could go for 3-5 days. The only significant expense would be the airfare, as food, lodging, ground transportation and admission charges are pretty darn inexpensive there. I would probably bring a bicycle to get around and can bring an extra. Let me know if you're interested.
General Expenses: upscale lodging runs about $25-$35/night, these places usually include a pool, and have AC.
Food, figure $10-$15 per day.
Temple pass - $20/day
Bicycle rental - $2-$6/day if you rent one there, nothing if we bring one.
Tuk/Tuk or Taxi - won't need one if we bicycle.
Airfare - depends where you are coming from. I plan to fly into Siem Reap, it's pretty cheap from Bangkok or Kuala Lampur on Air Asia - less than $300 r/t. From Seattle it runs between $1100 and $1600 r/t
You can also fly into Phnom Phen
and take a bus or a boat but you'll need a full day each way.
Other items to make sure you address:
Mosquito repelent, Dengue Fever is fairly common, avoiding bites is the best prevention, long sleeves, a bug net over your bed, DEET. Malaria is more common further out of town than we are likely to go.
