The price increase was announced on 05.08.2016, a day after the strict rules on clothing. The new regulations require travelers to cover shoulders and knees to visit the ruins of Angkor.
A series of nude pictures in this famous monument which has caused outrage across Cambodia has spurred the authorities to initiate new rules on costumes.

We do not allow visitors to buy tickets if they are badly dressed. ”

Three French tourists were arrested for taking naked pictures in the Banteay Kdei temple, one of the most beloved attractions of travelers. Two American sisters were also arrested for taking nude photos in February/2015.
