Cambodia recorded more than 1.4 million tourists within the five days of Khmer New Year Holiday, according to the report of the Ministry of Tourism.

The preliminary reports from all tourism provincial departments, revealed that the number of tourists who visited tourist destinations across the country from August 17-21, 2020 was about 1,459,386. Of which, 1,445,238 were local tourists and 14,148 foreigners.

The report said most tourists were groups of families who likely visited from one province to another during the holiday.

The report also said many tourist destinations had been creating various events and activities to attract tourists during the holidays. On top of it, the hygiene methods against the global disease COVID-19, have also been placed to curb the second wave of virus spread in the Kingdom.

Food and accommodation prices have not changed significantly, making it convenient for all tourists. Most of the accommodations were full in the holiday period, except some high class hotels for international tourists which remain closed. Those hotels are mostly located in Siem Reap province.
