Cambodia: Tourists Return to Preah Vihear

Categories: East Asia, Cambodia, Travel

Vutha Tim [1] visited Preah Vihear again and learned that tourists are starting to return to the historic temple which is being claimed by Thailand and Cambodia. But he also reported that the promised UNESCO aid to restore the damaged temple has not yet arrived. The temple was closed to the public because Thai and Cambodian soldiers have exchanged deadly fires [2] near the temple.
