Angkor Wat 101: Everything You Need to Know About Visiting What Was Once the World’s Biggest Civilization; Johanna Read; Fodors

What’s the best way to Angkor? How do you plan for visiting Angkor? The ruins of the Angkor temples, built from the 9th to 15th centuries, are a must-see. At its height in the 13th century, the city of Angkor is estimated to have had a million residents, and the kingdom covered almost all of Southeast Asia, making it that era’s largest civilization.  UNESCO named the Angkor Archaeological Park, situated just outside of Siem Reap, Cambodia, a World Heritage Site for good reason. The key to enjoying it, though, is escaping the crowds.

Cambodia – Temple Zone of Sambor Prei Kuk, Archaeological Site of Ancient Ishanapura

South Korean investors on a visit to the Kingdom last week have shown an interest in investing in Sambor Prei Kuk, a Unesco-listed archeological site in Kampong Thom, the Minister of Tourism said.

“Korean investors are keen to invest in Kampong Thom province, especially in Sambor Prei Kuk, to attract Korean tourists to the site,” said Minister Thong Khon.

The minister was speaking to journalists shortly after his meeting at the Asean-Korea Centre with Lee Hyuk, who was leading a delegation of Korean investors exploring business opportunities in the Kingdom.

Sambor Prei Kuk is the ancient capital of the Chenla Empire and gained Unesco recognition in July last year.

“Korean tourists usually like cultural tourism sites, so these investors have a great opportunity in their hands,” he said, adding that good investments would include hotels as well as golf courses.

“They can help strengthen the tourism industry in Kampong Thom, especially in the area surrounding Sambor Prei Kuk, by providing training to local communities,” he said.

Museum in Preah Vihear ready to open after 10 years preparing; Suntharoth Ouk; Phnom Penh Post

Cambodia – Temple of Preah Vihear

A new museum near Preah Vihear temple will be inaugurated on Tuesday, 10 years after the project began. The Samdech Techo Hun Sen Eco-Global Museum consists of 11 buildings on a 177-hectare plot of land in Choam Ksan district. It will present artefacts from the nearby temple and related heritage sites, as well as exhibitions on local culture, flora and fauna.

“The purpose of creating this museum during the war time with the neighbouring country is to show the world that Cambodia does not need war, we need only peace, to preserve the national heritage, to transfer knowledge from the past to the public and to educate the locals to love their national heritage and disseminate it to others,” said museum Director Som Piseth.

Unesco provided technical support for the project, with the finances partly supported by the Cambodian government, by funds from Prime Minister Hun Sen and from other donors. Piseth was unable to provide information about the project’s costs.
