Angkor attraction: Temple visits rise over first four months

ANGKOR Wat continues to entice foreign tourists, with over 543,000 visitors to the Siem Reap province temple complexes in the first four months of 2011, according to officials from the Apsara Authority, managers of the temple complex.

The figure equates to a 27.8 percent increase from the same period last year, according to General Director Bun Narith.

Revenue from ticket sales rose 30.78 percent in 2011, he said, however he declined to release exact figures.

Last week he pointed out calculations were not simply a matter of multiplying visitors by ticket prices.

Foreign tourists have three tariffs to choose from, covering a different number of days, according to Ministry of Tourism official Kong Sopheareak.
