China – The Largest Source Markets For Angkor
Siem Reap provincial tourism department reports visitors to Angkor Wat historical park, January to September, reached 1.57 million tourists, an increase of 6% over the same period last year.
For the first nine months of this year, South Korea, China, Vietnam, Japan and Thailand were the largest source markets for the temple complex.
South Korea led the field with 259,630 visits improving 3% following by 201,000 Chinese (+60%), 121,700 Vietnamese (-32%), 108, 540 Japanese (+11%), and 81,060 Thais (-5%).
Siem Reap provincial tourism department administration chief, Chhoeuy Chhorn, said China leads all markets, by a large margin.
“There are excellent ties between the two countries… broader promotions of Angkor to the world, and more direct flight connecting Cambodia and China, all helping to make a difference.”
An entrance fee to the Angkor historical park costs US$20 a day (foreigners only), US$40 for a three-day visit and US$60 for a week-long visit.
The park was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1992 and is now the kingdom’s largest cultural tourist destination.
Last year, it attracted 2.06 million foreign visitors, up 28% year on year.
