Cambodia’s Readiness for Chinese Tourists

Cambodia supports mechanisms to enable the country to absorb more tourists from China.

Tourism Minister H.E. Thong Khon expressed the support when presiding over a national workshop on Chinese tourism market and readiness of Cambodia’s tourism industry to host Chinese visitors (China Ready), held in Phnom Penh recently.

According to the minister, the readiness of Cambodia includes the establishment of hosting standard and China ready accreditation system as well as skill and capacity development of workers in the sector.

The national workshop, added H.E. Thong Khon, is therefore a fundamental orientation to the success.

Record shows that among 4.8 million tourists to Cambodia in 2015, some 700,000 were from China.

Cambodia is promoting the number of Chinese tourists to Cambodia to two million by 2020.
