Over 280,000 Tourists Travel During Second Weekend of July

A total of 285,808 national and international visitors toured Cambodia in the second weekend of July.

The figure suggested a decline by nearly 4 percent compared to the previous weekend, according to a report of the Ministry of Tourism, explaining that the decrease is due in part to the rainy season.

Of the tourists, 264,881 were national visitors and 20,927 were internal foreign tourists.

The most visited tourist destination was Preah Sihanouk coastal province, followed by the provinces of Siem Reap, Battambang and Kampot, and the capital of Phnom Penh.

The Ministry of Tourism and the Provincial and Municipal Tourism Departments continued to enforce the implementation of safety standard operating procedures (SOPs) introduced by the ministry to prevent possible transmission of COVID-19.
