Cambodia has bold plans to bring back tigers for tourism

India could be a model for how to bring the big cats back, but it will take work

PHNOM PENH Just 20 years ago, Cambodia was a country that many travelers to Southeast Asia skipped over to get to Thailand, Vietnam and other regional rivals. These days, they are flocking to see the country's pristine beaches, picturesque pagodas and famed Angkor temple complex.

In 2016, international arrivals to Cambodia increased by an annual 5%, surpassing 5 million, and is expected to have increased by 11.5% in 2017. In 2004, the country only saw 1 million tourists.
