7th Sea Festival Attracts 350,000 Tourists

Cambodia's 7th Sea Festival celebrated earlier in Koh Kong province attracted 350,000 domestic and international tourists � a remarkable increase compared to the previous celebration.

Day one of the event was joined by 60,000 tourists, day two 200,000, and day three nearly 90,000 � shared a lead of the event Minister of Tourism H.E. Thong Khon.

Happening from Dec. 14 to 16, the number of visitors to the Sea Festival � as claimed by the minister � was six times higher than that in 2014 when Koh Kong first hosted the event.

Sustained peace, political stability and high economic performance of Cambodia contribute significantly to another success of Sea Festival celebration, underlined H.E. Ms. Mithona Phouthorng, Governor of the host province which is home to countless tourist attractions.

As scheduled, the 8th Sea Festival will be organised in Kampot province in December 2019.
