Angkor ticket sales earn $116 million in 2018
The Angkor Archeological Park, which include the famed Unesco-listed Angkor temples, generated $116.6 million in income from entry tickets in 2018, an 8 percent increase compared with the year before, according to a statement.
From January to December, the number of foreign visitors to the park rose 5.4 percent to 2.5 million, according to the statement released today by the state-run Angkor Enterprise Institute, which manages the ticket sales.
It said that in December alone, ticket sales to Angkor Wat generated $12.1 million, a 1.6 percent increase, noting that 267,647 foreign tourists bought Angkor passes.
The Angkor Institute last year announced the new prices, with one-day tickets rising from $20 to $37, three-day tickets from $40 to $62 and one-week tickets from $60 to $72.
