via Xinhua, 01 June 2019: Earlier it was reported that Q1 revenues were down. This trend appear to be continuing – a fall in tourist numbers and revenue.

The number of foreign tourists visiting Cambodia’s famed Angkor Archeological Park dropped 7.3 percent in the first five months of 2019, a state-run Angkor Enterprise said in a press release on Saturday.


Nearly 1.12 million foreigners visited the ancient park during the January-May period this year, down 7.3 percent compared to the same period last year, the statement said.


It added that the site earned gross revenue of 50.3 million U.S. dollars from ticket sales during the first five months of this year, also down 8.5 percent over the same period last year.


China, the United States, and South Korea were the biggest sources of foreign tourists to the park.
