Foreign tourists to Cambodia might need to empty their pockets a bit more, as the country has hiked ticket prices for foreigners visiting famed Angkor archaeological park starting from today Feb 1, 2017.
The price for a one-day ticket rose from 20 U.S. dollars to 37 U.S. dollars, a three-day pass increased from 40 U.S. dollars to 62 U.S. dollars and a seven-day ticket climbed from 60 U.S. dollars to 72 U.S. dollars.
“The prices for tickets to the Angkor increase from today,” said Long Kosal, spokesman and deputy director of the communications department of the Apsara Authority, which manages the ancient site.
Entry remains free for Cambodians and children under 12 years old.
Located in north-western Cambodia’s Siem Reap province, the Angkor archaeological park, inscribed on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1992, is the country’s most popular tourist destination.
