Angkor stuff

Visiting the temples of Angkor will cost more from 1 Feb 2017. Angkor Enterprise, the state agency in charge of ticket sales, said foreigners must pay $37 (up from $20) for a 1-day Angkor Pass, a three-day ticket increases from $40 to $62 and a one-week ticket from $60 to $72. Khmers get in for free. Also much stricter dress codes have been implemented recently. Be warned.

Look in your cupboards and if you have any Khmer statues that came from Battambang, please return them! 68 have gone missing from the 2 museums in Battambang and a book about the missing sculptures is now out.

The sculptures have been spirited away over the years, but do not include this stele which I photographed at Wat Po Veal Museum in 2006.
