The proposal for a more flexible three-day Angkor temple pass, to be used over a one-week period is an excellent idea that has been lobbied for by people in the tourism industry for years. After the Ministry of Tourism announcement on March 3 that this would be introduced, I was expecting early action. But two months have now passed with no action. Many people are asking why. For tourists visiting Siem Reap for four or five days, three consecutive days looking at temples can be exhausting, especially for the elderly. To break temple visits with days to visit the silk farm, cultural village or Tonle Sap lake gives a much more balanced content to a holiday, and flexibility in the case of bad weather. A seven-day pass used over a two-week or one-month period will be of even greater benefit to tourists. Meanwhile, it will please photographers to know that the scaffolding that has covered the right of the central tower of Angkor Wat has now been removed, as shown by this photo taken at the Angkor Wat Night Show on Monday.
