Phnom Penh Airport

Phnom Penh International Airport is the largest airport in Cambodia, and is located 10km west of the capital city. It is one of three international airports in the country, along with those in Siem Reap and Sihanoukville.


The airport is split into two terminals: one for international flights and one for domestic flights. As well as flights to neighbouring countries, airlines also fly to Japan, Korea and Russia from Phnom Penh.


A visa on arrival is available for New Zealand passport holders, but you will also need a passport-sized photo and to pay the US$30 fee (payable in US dollars only). It's a good idea to bring your own pen to fill in the forms too.


The international terminal has both ATMs and currency exchange booths where you can get both US dollars and Cambodian riel. As a general rule, locals prefer to accept American dollars but will give small change in riel. As the national currency, riel is accepted universally, but because of the large denominations (it's roughly 4000 riel to US$1), carrying this sort of money can make it hard to close your wallet.


Duty free purchases can be made at the airport, but prices are usually cheaper when you get into Phnom Penh. Alcohol can be found for around half the price in local supermarkets.

 Getting to & from the Airport

Driving hide 

From the city centre of Phnom Penh, continue to Trung Morn St. and drive along 2004 Street to Confederation de la Russie. Drive towards the runway and follow the directions going to the airport.

Taxi hide 

As you leave the terminal, or even before, you'll find a host of taxi drivers hoping to take you to your accommodation. You'll find that in Cambodia most people prefer to take American bills rather than Cambodian, and will use their riel to replace American coins when giving change. Taxis operate on a fixed fee of US$9 to Phnom Penh city centre, and it's a very good idea to have the address of your hotel or hostel printed off (and ideally a map too).


For those without much luggage, motorcycle taxis are available for US$2.
