Favorite thing: Tickets are required to enter the Angkor area. They are on sale to foreigners at the front gate for 1 (US$20), 3 (US$40), or 7 (US$60) consecutive days (Cambodians can enter for free). If you buy your ticket the evening before, you can enter the park after 5PM to view the sunset, after which the park closes. A photo is required for the 3 and 7 day passes. There is a provision for obtaining this photo for free but this can be time consuming at peak times in the day. Note that regular checks for the pass are performed at almost all ruin sites. So, do carry your pass with you at all times while visiting the ruins.

You can enter the park from 5 AM, and the temples themselves open at sunrise — as there are far fewer people there early in the morning and the sun isn't at full force. Arriving at the temples at 8 AM instead of 9 AM can make all the difference in staying one step ahead of the tour bus contingents.
