The prohibition came after the Apsara Authority released the "code of conduct" for tourists visiting the Angkor in December last year.
The code tells tourists of the rules against wearing revealing clothes， touching carvings or sitting on fragile structures， smoking， and entering restricted areas at the temples. It also advises tourists to avoid either giving money and candy to children or taking a selfie with monks.
