The ancient park made a gross revenue of US$185,079 from ticket sales during the January-March period this year, also down 98.9 per cent from 17.9 million dollars over the same period last year, said the state-owned Angkor Enterprise's statement.
The huge slump was due to the Covid-19 pandemic that has forced the Southeast Asian nation to impose entry restrictions for all foreign travelers since March last year.
Ministry of Tourism secretary of state and spokesman Top Sopheak pinned hopes for a tourism recovery on Covid-19 vaccines.
Located in Siem Reap province, the Angkor Archeological Park, inscribed on the World Heritage List of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in 1992, is the kingdom's most popular tourist destination.
Cambodia exported 153,688 tons of milled rice in the first quarter of 2021, down 33 per cent from 230,948 tons over the same period last year, Agriculture Minister Veng Sakhon has announced.

The Southeast Asian nation exported 35,442 tons to the European market during the period, down 49 per cent, Sakhon said.
