The Ministry of Tourism (MoT) has said it expects more than four million tourists each year by 2015, and Cambodia must construct nearly 2,000 hotels and 4,500 guesthouses with a total of 170,000 rooms to accommodate them.

According to the MoT, Cambodia had 299 hotels with 14,271 rooms and 615 guesthouses with 7,684 rooms in 2005. The country is seeing an annual average increase in tourist arrivals of 25 percent and is on track to top two million travelers this year.

Cambodia expects tourism to generate 360,000 jobs and $2.3 billion in national revenue by 2010, said Sam Prumnear, secretary of state for the Ministry of Tourism.
