Photographer's Note

January 2020. The number of foreign tourists visiting Cambodia’s iconic Angkor wat temple complex fell last year, with NGOs and other sources blaming the drop in numbers on political instability in the country and high service fees charged to visitors.
Around 2.2 million tourists visited the Angkor archeological park in Siem Reap province in 2019, down 14.8 % from 2018, while ticket sales in 2018 brought in $99 million, down 15 % from 2019, according to recent figures released by Cambodia’s ministry of tourism.
Tourists from China, the United States, and South Korea meanwhile remained the largest source of foreign income to the vast 12th century Hindu temple complex, the Ministry said in a year-end report.
At least three aircrafts bringing tourists landed each day in Siem Reap in 2018. But only one plane landed each day in 2019, and on some days no planes landed at all, he said. Badly organized flight connections and the poor quality of souvenirs offered for sale in Siem Reap are also to blame, he said. Source :
