MANILA — Filipino tourists can now enjoy up to 30 days of visa-free stay in Cambodia, the Philippine Embassy there said Thursday.

In a Facebook post, the Philippine Embassy said Cambodia approved its request for an extended visa-free stay for holders of regular or ordinary Philippine passports. 

Before the extension, citizens of Philippines and other member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) were allowed up to 21 days visa-free stay.

Popular tourist sites in Cambodia can be found in its capital city Phnom Phen as well as in Siem Reap. 

Siem Reap is where the site of Angkor Wat, the world’s largest Hindu temple, is located. According to Cambodia's tourism ministry, Angkor Wat was ranked as the World’s Top Tourism Landmark in 2017. 

In 2018, Siem Reap attracted more than 7 million visitors, it said.
