thaiTourism and trade activities along the Thai-Cambodian border near the ancient Preah Vihear temple resume following the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruling on the disputed land near the temple, contested by the two neighbouring countries, Thai News Agency (TNA) reported.


Tourism activities at Khao Phra Viharn (Preah Vihear) National Park in Si Sa Ket’s Kantharalak border district, which was reopened for tourists for the second day on Sunday, has become active again after many Thais and foreigners visited and admired the beauty of the scenery there.


On November 11, the ICJ ruled that the disputed area of land surrounding the ancient temple near the Thai-Cambodian border belongs to Cambodia.


According to TNA, the park was temporarily closed on November 4 on fears of unrest ahead of the ICJ’s ruling on the 4.6-sq-km disputed land near Preah Vihear temple.


Many tourists said that they have never seen Pa Mor I-Daeng before, which is close to Preah Vihear temple, and they decided to travel to the park after learning that it has been reopened.


Meanwhile, more than 1,500 Cambodians crossed the Thai border checkpoint in Si Sa Ket on Sunday after gaining confidence that no violence would erupt in the area, causing cross border trade to become bullish again.
