I keep hearing that more and more foreign visitors visit Cambodia to see the ancient temples, my question is where is the money? the revenue from those tourists should be used to build school, hospitals, roads, sewage, water treatment plants....help the poor....

Instand it went to the pocket of the CPP like Thong Khon (minister of tourism). It is a very sad day for all Khmers.

Most of the revenue money go to Sok Kong, Sok An and Hun Sen and foreign tourist operators and hotel owners. The ordinary Cambodians did not benefits much at all, even trying to sell souvenirs to tourists have been banned.
