Cambodian Tourism on the Rise

100,000 Foreigners to Visit in 1992

More than 70,000 foreign tourists visited Cambodia during the first nine months of

this year, reported the official State of Cambodia news agency SPK.

According to Som Chen, deputy chief of the Department of Tourism, the number of tourists

visiting Cambodia is increasing every year, especially since the signing of the Paris

peace accords. Chen expects that by the end of the year the number of foreign visitors

will reach 100,000. Currently 68 tourist companies and 45 hotels operate in Phnom

Penh, Som Chen said.

Cambodia plans to have 7,000 hotel rooms, including 5,000 rooms in Phnom Penh and

2,000 others in provincial towns by 1997, Som Chen added. Prior to 1970, Cambodia

had only 378 hotel rooms for foreign tourists.
