Angkor entry fee to double

PHNOM PENH: The Cambodian government on Friday announced a major increase in entrance fees for the Angkor temple complex, with the cost of a one-day ticket nearly doubling to US$37 from early next year.

Angkor Enterprise, the state agency in charge of ticket sales, said that starting from Feb 1, the prices foreigners must pay for a one-day Angkor Pass will rise from $20 to $37, a three-day ticket from $40 to $62 and a one-week ticket from $60 to $72.

Cambodian citizens, as well as foreigners of Cambodian birth or whose parents are Cambodian, are exempt from paying the entrance fee, as are foreign children under 12 years old.

According to the statement, $2 from each ticket sold will be used to support local children's hospitals

Last year, 2.12 million foreign tourists visited Angkor Wat and the dozens of other temple ruins in sprawling Angkor Archeological Park, according to government statistics.

.
lets hope the money makes it that far.
even a large proportion of it would be a good result.

Interesting...

Greetings all. Keep changing my mind as where to settle down again this time.
Was living in Sihanoukville, Cambodia. It was a beautiful coastal town but Chinese moved in and turned it in to a huge Chinatown. All rent prices tripled if not more. Even running out the local Cambodians.

I went to Gaeling or something named like that near KL with my wife and her friend and Malaysian husband

I lasted about 5mins and hopped in a taxi back to KL solo

Then I went to the big casino in Singapore
Played blackjack and had to continue to tell these Chinese idiots to stop leaning on me and reaching over my back to bet

Chinese are the fxuking worse st Casinos

I went a few years ago. Interesting place. There’s a TR somewhere. I remember the Russian market as being interesting.

From memory the streets round 100 - 130 or so were where the bars are while around 160 or so was a bit classier.

Sadly the BJ bar (where, according to Adam of Cherry Bar, when you went in all the ladies had a suck of your c*ck and you decided which to take upstairs for a BJ) seems to have closed down - La Cyrcee?

Sadly all I got was a BJ in a bus shelter from a LB.

If you go to PP then you might as well go up to SR and/or down to the coast as well.

I would check out bkk122 as he spent some time in Phnom Penh recently. In terms of daytime activities I guess the main ones are a couple of temples, the Killing fields and S21 museum.

For my next trip I'm going to do 2 nights in PP followed by 3 in Siem Reap. Off to Thailand after that. I know 3 days isn't enough for SR and I'd only be scratching the surface, but wanted to get a little taste. 4 star hotels seem quite cheap too.

In adddition...

The Kings Palace probably my favourite place to wander around in PP...some beautiful architecture there...The National Museum is also well worth a look....lovely ambience and gardens...gives you a good idea of history through its exhibits...

The Riverside/Sissowath Quay is great late afternoon when the locals come out to parade and play games just before/around dark...nice just to sit back and have a (50c) beer along there and take it all in...

There are some great restaurants around as well...Bopha Titanic, Metro, Oskar, La Croisette to name a few...i love eating out in PP...cheap and very good quality for the price...a lot of French influence and training in their food

Let me know when you are going Khun SE...been a few years now since I have been so I might just join you

The killing fields and museum aren't for everyone.!
I only lasted 5 mins at the killing fields...that was enough for me.....here's the tree where they put the kids heads and smashed them in with a club and put them in that pit over there....see ya later.!
You can't shoot cows with the RPG's there anymore too.

Cheers. That should be enough to fill 2 days for me along with the killing fields. Flights all booked. Flying from London into PP then gone out of Bangkok.

Got a really cheap flight with Angkor Air from PP to Siem Reap too.
