AKP Phnom Penh, July 17, 2020 --
A total of 313,300 domestic tourists visited different tourist attractions across Cambodia in the first two weeks of July 2020.
The figure was revealed by Minister of Tourism H.E. Thong Khon on July 17, adding that the trend indicates an increase of 1.67 percent compared to the last two weeks of June.
Of the total number, 5,491 were foreign tourists, down 30.89 percent, and 307,809 were national tourists, up 2.54 percent, it pointed out.
H.E. Thong Khon expressed his optimism that the number of domestic tourists will rise again in August as people will have a long holiday (in compensation of their Khmer New Year holiday), followed by Pchum Ben holiday season in September, and more holidays in the following months, while COVID-19 situation would be better.
