The Angkor Sunset Finder is a new website and offers 34 places where visitors can see the sunset at the Angkor Archaeological Park. It is an initiative by APSARA National Authority to enhance visitor experience and appreciation of Angkor while ensuring its conservation for future generations.
This pilot project, which arised from the Tourism Management Plan, is part of the Angkor Heritage Management framework and supported by the Royal Government of Cambodia, the Australian Government and UNESCO. The Sunset Finder project has been undertaken by Australian consultants GML who are working in collaboration with the APSARA National Authority.
The goal is to promote amazing sunset experiences on several places at Angkor and it aims to spread visitors across the park by offering new and unknown attractions and to provide benefits to local communities.
