via Phnom Penh Post, 02 Jan 2019 and other sources: The latest tourist figures to the Angkor Archaeological Park for 2018. The 2.6 million figure counts ticket sales for international tourists, and may not necessarily reflect true visitor numbers since Cambodians enjoy access for free.
The Angkor Archaeological Park welcomed nearly 2.6 million international visitors last year, generating more than $100 million in revenue, a statement from the state-run Angkor Enterprise released on Tuesday said.
The park saw a 5.45 per cent rise in visitors to 2.59 million from last year, while revenue from ticket sales jumped eight per cent, generating $116.64 million.
However, revenue declined 1.59 per cent to around $12.11 million in December even though the number of visitors to the Kingdom’s iconic tourist site increased 0.16 per cent to 267,647.
