APSARA National Authority launches a new visiting circuit at Bayon Temple in Siem Reap province.

Mr. Seng Sotheara, Deputy Director of the authority’s Department of Angkor Tourism Development, underlined that the preparation of this new circuit is to arrange better flow of tourists at the temples as well as to avoid being crowded during the visit.

It also, he continued, aims to make tourists appreciate more the value of temple, such as the history of sculptures in all the galleries, and maintain a safe distance for tourists to prevent the COVID-19 pandemic.

There are three options for the new visiting circuit – the first lasts 1 hour and 45 minutes, the second 55 minutes and the third 45 minutes, the deputy director said, adding that besides the new visiting circuit, there are photo spots for tourists to take pictures of themselves with special scenes.

The authority has also set up new information boards in three languages: Khmer, English, and Chinese, he pointed out.

According to Mr. Seng Sotheara, by far, the authority has already established such visiting circuits at other temples including Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm, and Banteay Srei.

At the same time, he said, the authority is considering preparing the visiting circuits at other temples in terms of organising the flow of tourists and highlighting the values of those temples.
