Korean flights up

Cambodia and South Korea have agreed to liberalize air flights between the two countries

in time for the Cambodian-Korean Angkor-Gyeongju World Culture EXPO to be held in

Siem Reap from November to January 2007.

The agreement was made in a meeting between the two governments on September 5-6

in Phnom Penh.

From October 30 there will be 28 South Korean flights to and from Siem Reap and Phnom

Penh - up from four now - with Korean Air beginning flights.

Until now many Korean travelers visiting Angkor Wat have had to transfer in Vietnam

or Thailand. Deputy Prime Minister Sok An said 200,000 South Koreans visited Cambodia

in 2005 with an expected further increase in 2006.
