Revenue from entrance tickets sold to tourists visiting the Angkor Archaeological Park in the first five months reached about $60 million, up 64.13 percent compared with the same period last year, according to the latest figures from the park manager Angkor Enterprise.

Last month alone, revenue from ticket sales to foreign tourists reached about $6.66 million, of which some $6.36 million went into national coffers while $294,022 was donated to the Kantha Bopha Childrens’ Hospitals, stated the Angkor Enterprise report.

The government announced last August in 2016 that the price of a one-day ticket to the Angkor Archaeological Park would increase from $20 to $37, a three-day pass would rise from $40 to $60 and a week-long pass would be bumped from $60 to $72.
