via Xinhua, 19 Oct 2020: I certainly hope a medical solution to Covid-19 becomes viable so that travel can resume again!
Cambodia predicted that international visitors to its famed Angkor Archeological Park will start to rebound gradually from next year if COVID-19 vaccines are available, a spokesman for the Ministry of Tourism said on Monday.
Angkor Archeological Park, the kingdom’s top tourist destination, has seen a huge slump in foreign tourists during the first nine months of 2020 due to the pandemic that has forced the country to impose entry restrictions for all foreign travelers since March.
Located in northwest Siem Reap province, the world heritage site received 396,241 international visitors during the January-September period of this year, down 76 percent over the same period last year, according to an Angkor Enterprise’s report.
The ancient site got 18.45 million U.S. dollars in revenue from ticket sales during the first nine months of the year, also down 75 percent year-on-year, the report said.
