Are you planning to visit Cambodia? Do you want to indulge in the traditional and prehistoric temple run-like scenery and architecture? Well, the Royal Government of Cambodia OK-ed the 30-day visa-free stay in Cambodia from the original 21-day stay only.
In their Facebook post, they said that the facility can and might still be extended for another thirty (30) days or one (1) month.
How about Filipinos who would be staying for more than two (2) months or sixty (60) days?
On the other hand, Filipinos who would be staying in Cambodia for more than 60 days, should apply for a visa. They can apply for a visa upon arrival at the port of entry in Cambodia—this is for the tourists or travelers to avoid inconvenience.
Prior the announcement of the extensions, Filipino travelers—member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), were only allowed for up to twenty-one (21) days of visa-free stay or entry.

Fun Fact: Angkor Wat was known to be the World’s Top Tourism Landmark back in 2017. It really is a place you need to visit.
