According to statistics from the Siem Reap provincial tourism department, the Ankgor heritage site received 694,700 visitors during the first quarter of 2013, an 8 per cent increase from the same period last year.

angkor-watChinese tourists were up by 77 per cent to 87,104, while Vietnamese tourists were down 39 per cent to 45,760.

Cambodia Association of Travel Agents president Ang Kim Eang attributes the rise in Chinese visitors to the strong relations between the Kingdom and China, as well as an increased number of flights.

According to data from the Ministry of Tourism, the number of international tourists in Cambodia increased by 24.4 per cent last year, from 2.88 million in 2011 to 3.58 million in 2012. Of those, just over 763,000, or 21.3 per cent, were from Vietnam.
