News Brief: Tourists down

The number of Cambodian tourists travelling overseas has dropped up to

30 percent since last August on 2008 figures, say Cambodian tour

operators, a further sign of an economic slowdown. Seen as an emerging

industry as Cambodian spending power grows, tour operators say that the

general malaise affecting the world travel industry appears to be

hitting the domestic market. “Last year, Cambodian people who visit

other countries through my tour agency dropped between 20 to 30 percent

compared to 2007,” Jin Sien of Travel & Tour Cover told the Post,

citing poor consumer confidence.
