via Xinhua, 01 March 2019: This is the first time in recent memory I’ve read about a drop in tourist numbers at Angkor. Could this be we have reached peak tourism in Angkor?

Cambodia’s famed Angkor Archeological Park attracted 544,309 foreign tourists in the first two months of 2019, down 7.7 percent compared to the same period last year, said a statement on Friday.

The ancient park made gross revenue of 25 million U.S. dollars from ticket sales during the January-February period this year, also down 8.7 percent over the same period last year, said the state-owned Angkor Enterprises statement.
