Royal Government Increases Angkor’s Entrance Fees

The entrance fees for the Angkor Archeological Park in Siem Reap province, a UNESCO’s World Heritage Site, will increase from February next year, according to an announcement of the Angkor Institution, the state-owned agency in charge of Angkor income management made public late last week.

From Feb. 1, 2017 onwards, the Royal Government of Cambodia will change the entrance fees for the Angkor temples as follows: one-day pass costs US$37, three-day pass US$62, and seven-day pass US$72, it pointed out.

US$2 from each ticket sold will be donated to the Kantha Bopha Children’s Hospitals in support of their mission of providing free treatment to Cambodian children, added the announcement.

The current entrance fees are US$20, US$40, and US$60 for one-day, three-day and seven-day tickets, respectively.

In the first seven months of this year, Angkor temples attracted a total of 1,260,270 foreign tourists, up 1.76 percent compared to the same period last year, generating more than US$35.87 million as income, up 2.33 percent.
