APSARA prioritises safety at Angkor

The APSARA National Authority (ANA) prioritises its work of organising tourist order at temples to ensure heritage values, maintain order and avoid any congestion and risk that can happen to the temples and visitors to the Angkor Archaeological Park.

A technical team from the ANA's Department of Tourism Development and Culture were working to organise the flow of tourists at the temples by displaying general information, direction and prohibition signs, and other related notices at some important locations in the temple complex.

It added that because all the ancient temples are thousands of years old, some places are now broken and some were slippery, especially on the stairs. The team has made wooden floors and stairs to ensure the safety of tourists.

It called on all domestic and international tourists who visit the temples to respect the Angkor Code of Conduct and other signs in the temples.
