Cambodia’s famed Angkor Archeological Park received 4,482 foreign visitors in the first quarter of 2021, down 98.8 per cent from 383,663 over the same period last year, confirmed a statement.

The ancient park made a gross revenue of US$185,079 from ticket sales during the January-March period this year, also down 98.9 per cent from 17.9 million dollars over the same period last year, said the state-owned Angkor Enterprise’s statement.
