Cambodian tourism has grown dramatically for the last two decades. This trend encourages the Cambodian government to adopt tourism as a strategy for poverty reduction and economic development. However, the potential of tourism in alleviating poverty has not been investigated in detail. Therefore, the aim of the study is to understand whether and how tourism growth has contributed to poverty alleviation in the Siem Reap-Angkor region. The study examines the interrelationship between tourism and poverty reduction by exploring opportunities and constraints of local people in the tourism value chain (TVC).
