MBtv: Revitalised Angkor Wat brings hope for Cambodia tourism recovery

As dawn breaks, foreign tourists gather by the ancient towers of Cambodia’s Angkor Wat, some of the lucky few to see the World Heritage Site with the crowds thin as the country recovers from the coronavirus. Hopes are high that the temple complex, recently revitalised from repair work, will spearhead a recovery in tourism after the Southeast Asian nation began re-opening to travellers last November. A handful of overseas visitors are once again roaming the sacred site, with many calling it a unique opportunity.
