Number of Foreign Arrivals Up 2.6% in Q1

AKP Phnom Penh, May 17, 2016 –

In the first quarter of this year, the number of foreign visitors to Cambodia reached some 1.34 million, up only 2.6 percent from 1.30 million in the same period last year, a senior official of the Ministry of Tourism told local media.

The Vietnamese remained at the top of foreign tourists to Cambodia, followed by the Chinese, Koreans, Thais, Americans, Laotians and Japanese.

Cambodia expected to attract about 5 million foreign visitors this year, up from 4.8 million the previous year. Terrorism and heat wave could be the main challenges for tourism growth.
