A Hong Kong-listed casino operator has announced plans to construct a 75-hectare theme park just 500 meters from Cambodia’s ancient Angkor Wat temple complex.
NagaCorp’s new “Angkor Lake of Wonder” theme park and resort will be built on the south side of the Angkor Archaeological Park protected area
The company compared the project to Disneyland, though it will be twice the size, and says the “comprehensive non-gaming integrated world-class resort” will not include any casinos. The development would be the only NagaCorp project that doesn’t include gambling facilities.
The company operates Phnom Penh’s NagaWorld, the largest gambling resort in the country, and is registered in the Cayman Islands. Gambling is illegal under domestic law for Cambodians in the country but permitted for foreigners.
Angkor Lake of Wonder project will be designed by US architectural firms Steelman Partners and Gensler.
Locals have already raised concerns about the development
The plan has drawn condemnation from residents and civil society groups who say it will jeopardize the local culture and the UNESCO World Heritage site as a whole.
