The Angkor Archaeological Park in Siem Reap province becomes completely quiet after the visit has been temporarily prohibited for two weeks, from April 7 to 20 due to the COVID-19 threat.
There are currently only officials of the APSARA National Authority on duty in the Angkor Resort.
The temporary ban of the visit was announced in a joint press release of the APSARA National Authority and Angkor Enterprise issued recently, following the measures being introduced by the Royal Government of Cambodia to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
The government earlier decided to ban, with some exceptions, interprovincial travel and ordered temporary closure of all tourist resorts across the country for two weeks from 00:00 of April 7 to 20.
Per record yesterday, Cambodia’s confirmed cases increased to 3,028, of which 1,914 have successfully recovered and 24 deceased.
