Cambodia is eyeing the 2022 Sea Festival, to be held in Preah Sihanouk province from Dec. 9 to 11, as an opportunity to promote its coastal destinations to members of the World’s Most Beautiful Bays Club (World-Bays Club).
The remarks were made by H.E. Thong Khon, Minister of Tourism, at a preparatory meeting held last Saturday in Preah Sihanouk province.
At the same time, Cambodia will also host the 18th World Congress of the World-Bays Club from Dec. 9 to 14 under the theme “Bays of Peace, Bays of Hope”.
This will be the second time that Cambodia has organised the Club’s World Congress. The first time was in 2013 at Bokor Thansur Resort in Kampot province.
The good example of Cambodia and the province of Preah Sihanouk in responsible coastal development and management will be promoted to all the 26 Club members, H.E. Thong Khon said on the occasion.
H.E. Minister therefore advised the Preah Sihanouk provincial administration to prepare an exhibition stand to show its achievements in developing the bays as popular destinations during this year's Sea Festival.
Cambodia’s coastline stretches about 450 kilometres in four provinces – Preah Sihanouk, Koh Kong, Kampot and Kep. It became member of the Club of the World’s Most Beautiful Bays in mid-2011.
