Over a quarter of a million Chinese tourists visited Cambodia during the first six months of year, leading all other foreign nationalities by numbers, new data released by Cambodia Airports, the Kingdom’s international airport operator, show.

A total of 274,411 Chinese tourists visited the Kingdom during the first half of 2016, 20 per cent more than during the same period a year before.

American, South Korean, Thai and French tourists made up the rest of the top five foreign visitor nationalities.
