APSARA Creates Cow Cart Service for Tourists in Angkor Archeological Park
The Authority for the Protection and Management of Angkor and the Region of Siem Reap (APSARA) has cooperated with Cow Cart Community in Siem Reap province to offer the cow cart service for tourists in the Angkor Archeological Park.
The creation of this transportation service is aimed to preserve this traditional Cambodian vehicle as well as to generate income for the local villagers, said the APSARA Authority.
The Cow Cart Community was established in 2010 by the APSARA Authority in cooperation with New Zealand under the Angkor Community Heritage and Economic Advancement Project (ACHA), it added.
Currently, there are about 20 cow carts available for the service, and the fee is only US$7 per trip, of which US$5 will go to the cow cart’s driver, US$1 to the management commission, and US$1 to the community.
