Marketing Religious Tourism

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Ministries pray to attract religious tourism
26 August 2018
The Tourism Ministry last week announced it will work with the Cults and Religion Ministry to promote religious tourism in the country.

The announcement was made after ministry officials held a meeting at the Tourism Ministry in Phnom Penh.

Tith Chantha, a Tourism Ministry secretary of state, on Wednesday said each ministry has been tasked with conducting their own feasibility studies to be submitted by the end of the year.

Mr Chantha said that pagodas around the country are expected to take part in luring tourists in order to boost the country’s religious and tourism industries.

“We are preparing and selecting pagodas with history to attract the tourists,” he said. “We could begin the process next year, and it will promote both religion and tourism.”

A luxury reference is just too tempting - they will pay to be woken in their hole in the road at 5am?

Then, on realizing the significance of that, the Blessed One on that occasion exclaimed: [The Buddha ព្រះមានព្រះភាគ to King Pasenadi ព្រះបាទ​បសេនទិ​កោសល]

One should not make an effort everywhere,
should not be another's hireling,
should not live dependent on another,
should not go about
as a trader in the Dhamma.

Ud 6.2, Paṭisalla Sutta: Seclusion

គ្រានោះ ព្រះមានព្រះភាគ ទ្រង់ជ្រាប​សេចក្តីនុ៎ះ​ហើយ ទើបទ្រង់​បន្លឺឧទាន​នេះ ក្នុងវេលា​នោះថា

បុគ្គលមិនគប្បីប្រឹងប្រែង ក្នុងអំពើលាមក​ទាំងពួងទេ បុគ្គល​មិនគប្បី​ជាបុរស​នៃ​បុគ្គល​ដទៃ មិនគប្បី​រស់នៅ​ព្រោះអាស្រ័យ​អ្នកដទៃ មិនគប្បី​ប្រព្រឹត្តធម៌ (ដើម្បីលាភ) ដូចការ​ជួញប្រែទេ។

(ភាគ៥២, ឧទាន, វគ្គ ទី៦, ស. ២)
Simply having such thoughts will be of long, long demerit and suffering for the thinker and those bond to him, not to speak if such is brought to speech and actions... It's good to warn people to do not harm themselves with unwise actions, caught in greed, aversion and delusion.

And thinking on the destruction of many merits, since monasteries had actually be given to the Sangha, real grave thievery frim the Juwels is not far. One whould not have the merits to endure the results of such leading many upwardly.
