Phnom Penh: Cambodia's famed Angkor Archaeological Park received 344,757 foreign tourists in the first five months of 2023, up 653 per cent from 45,779 in the same period last year, an official statement said on Monday.
The Unesco World Heritage Site made $16 million in revenue from ticket sales during the January-May period this year, up 765 per cent from $1.85 million in the same period last year, Xinhua news agency quoted the state-owned Angkor Enterprise's statement as saying.
