via Khmer Times, 02 April 2019: Earlier there was a story that tourist visits were down 7.7% at the end of February, and the revenue sales from the first quarter seems to be consistent with this drop, about 9%. The tourist authorities have attributed the drop to the hot season.

Revenue from ticket sales at the Angkor Archaeological Park declined by 9.3 percent during the first quarter of the year, reaching only $35.9 million.

This marks the first time revenue has dropped since the government took over ticket sales in 2016.

From January to March, the number of foreign visitors to the Angkor Archaeological Park, which includes the famed Unesco-listed Angkor temples, declined 8.2 percent, with just 787,900 foreign tourists visiting the complex, according to a statement released yesterday by the state-run Angkor Enterprise Institute, which manages ticket sales.
