Australian Travel Agency Reprimanded for Advertising Angkor Wat as Vietnam

The company reportedly used an image of the iconic temple in part of their brochure for Vietnam, prompting anger from the Ministry of Tourism.

Cambodia’s Ministry of Tourism on Sept. 22 called on Wendy Wu Tours, an Australian tourism company, to remove the image of Cambodia’s Angkor Wat temple on its brochure for Vietnam.

Taking to their official Facebook page, the Tourism Ministry complained of the company’s mistake, arguing that it may lead to misconceptions that Angkor Wat is in Vietnam. The ministry subsequently contacted the company to alert them to their error.

However, rather than rectifying the mistake, Wendy Wu Tours responded saying that they would agree to change “Vietnam” to “Southeast Asia.”
