Revenue from ticket sales to foreigners visiting Cambodia's famed Angkor archaeological park reached 95.6 million U.S. dollars in the first 11 months of 2017, up 72 percent compared to the same period last year, said a statement on Friday.

The remarkable surge in revenue was due to the increase in ticket prices earlier this year.

The ancient site attracted 2.18 million foreign visitors during the January-November period this year, up 12 percent over the same period last year, said the statement from the state-run Angkor Enterprise, which is in charge of ticket sales at the park.

China is the largest source of tourists to the historic site, followed bySouth Koreaand theUnited States.

The current entrance fee to the park is 37 U.S. dollars for a one-day visit, 62 U.S. dollars for a three-day pass, and 72 U.S. dollars for a week-long pass.

Located in northwestern Cambodia's Siem Reap province, the Angkor archeological park, inscribed on the World Heritage List of theUnited NationsEducational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1992, is the country's most popular tourist destination.
