Cambodia: $2 to see Pol Pot's ashes
The Khmer Rouge abolished money during their genocidal regime but now the Cambodian government is charging $2 to tourists visiting the spot where their murderous leader, Pol Pot, was disposed of.There are clearly people who still like Pol Pot.
[...] Pol Pot's cremation site is the prime asset in a plan to develop Anlong Veng, their last stronghold, into a tourist attraction. Down a narrow path behind a roadside market, through the wooden huts of a small Cambodian army encampment, the spot where the genocidal killer's remains were cremated has become a shrine.
[...] Two cranes stand nearby ready to build a casino to lure visitors once the go-ahead is given. "Without tourism development other businesses will not do well," said Seng Sokheng, manager of the Anlong Veng tourist office. (source)
