Stripping and monk-selfies banned at Angkor Wat


New code of conduct in place at temple, with earlier opening
Angkor Wat will open two hours earlier, and a new code of conduct has been created for visitors.
As of January 1, the Cambodian temple complex will open at 05:30, giving tourists the opportunity to watch the sunrise on site.
But tourists will be expected to follow the site’s guidelines or risk punishment. Posters by the site remind travellers that smoking, giving to begging children and taking selfies with monks have all been forbidden.
Climbing over the monuments is also now a definite no, and a recent trend for stripping at Angkor Wat is being tackled, with visitors being reminded to keep their clothes on at all times.
