Khmer New Year festival brings in more income

Angkor Sangkranta, Siem Reap’s largest cultural festival held over Khmer New Year, raked in a total income of $95 million on the back of 1.6 million domestic and international visitors, a 23 percent year-on-year increase, state news agency AKP said yesterday.

The report quoted Minister of Tourism Thong Kong who said that total visitors continued to increase steadily while international visitors topped out at 31,800, up almost 8 percent from the year before.

The festival, held near Angkor Wat, was the fifth year in a row to be organised by the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia.
