Now is the right time to visit Cambodia.
With a more lenient COVID-19 safety and healthy protocols, His Excellency Sok Sangvar, Under Secretary of State and Representative of Dr. Thong Khon, Minister of Tourism, underscored Cambodia’s recovery platform program as the country opens its door to international tourists for leisure or even for business.
“We’re inviting everyone to visit Cambodia. If you’re fully vaccinated, there’s no need for you to undergo quarantine. You can now enjoy Cambodia’s beautiful places and known world heritage sites straight from your arrival,” said Sok Sangvar.
Sok Sangvar led four delegates to organize a program to promote Cambodia tourism under the campaign to visit Cambodia–a warm, safe, clean and green tourist destination in Southeast Asia.
Cambodia’s Tourism Roadshow—Visit Cambodia NEXT as a Safe, Warm, Clean, and Green Tourism Destination – started May 3 and closed May 7 at the Monet Room of Novotel Hotel in Araneta Center in Quezon City.
Cambodia is dotted with an array of unforgettable places, views and experiences like the famous Angkor Wat and Phnom Penh, which is the largest city located on the Mekong River and once known as “The Pearl of Asia.”
Top attractions also include the opulent Royal Palace complex, which shimmers with the spires of the Silver Pagoda at its center. For a taste of local life, be sure to hit the buzzing Sisowath Quay, which runs along the Mekong in a medley of markets and picnic spots.
During the forum, Sok Sangvar said that in the first four months of 2022, Cambodia received 220,000 international tourists and about 90,000 domestic tourists, marking the recovery of tourism in Cambodia. And by the end of 2022, officials forecast to receive up to 800,000 tourists.
“Just like other countries in Asia and in the world, Cambodia was directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Cambodians are resilient and we’re working hard and tourism will definitely boost our economic recovery program,” added Sok Sangvar.
The Cambodian delegation remains optimistic that the Chinese market will reopen to international tourism when the Covid-19 situation in the country returns back to normal, while the long haul market is a strategic target set by the Ministry of Tourism as a high-end and cost-effective tourism market.
Members of the Philippine Travel agency organizations and affiliated associations have joined the Roadshow.
