Entry passes are required to enter the Angkor Archaeological Park, and must be shown at many of the temples. At the main entrance, on the Siem Reap–Angkor Wat road, three categories of pass are available: one day, this can be purchased after 5pm, allowing entry for sunset on the day of purchase and all the following day ($20); three days, valid for three days during the following week ($40); seven days ($60) valid for one month. Children under 12 are admitted free, but you must show their passport as proof of age; 12 and over they pay the full entrance fee. One-day passes only can be bought at the ticket office between the airport and Angkor Wat, at Roluos group and at Banteay Srei. Note that payment is by cash only, no cards are accepted; there is no need to provide a photo as these are now taken digitally at the ticket office. Most people find the three-day pass adequate, giving enough time to see all the temples in the central area and to visit the outlying temples at Roluos, Banteay Srei and Banteay Samre. Separate tickets are required to visit Phnom Kulen ($20), Koh Ker ($10), and Beng Mealea ($5); the fees are collected at those temples.
