To many Cambodians, Angkor Wat stands as the maximum symbol of their cultural heritage. A visit to Angkor Wat, and the hundreds of surrounding temples, is generally regarded with reverence. However, in the last decade the ruins of Angkor, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, have become the largest tourist destination in Southeast Asia. Two million visitors a year descend on these fragile temple complexes. The nearest city, Siem Reap, has experienced dramatic growth, accompanied by much foreign investment. Innumerable new hotels have sprung up in the city, along the road to the airport, and along the road to the ruins themselves. While there has been a massive internal migration by Cambodians from the countryside to Siem Reap in search of jobs, the vast profits generated by the tourist industry generally benefit foreign investors, not the service workers earning a subsistence wage. These photographs depict visitors to the temples of Angkor Wat, Phnom Bakeng (which offers a spectacular view of the sunset) and Banteay Srei. It may be tourism that drives Siem Reap's booming economy but the tourism industry also feeds the exploitation of thousands of Cambodians working in menial jobs or in the sex industry, catering to the tastes of foreigners.
