Sales Up

Cambodia's biggest hotel, the four-star Sofitel Cambodiana, expects a 20 per cent

increase in revenues this year after high occupancy rates in the first five months,

its general manager said.

Philippe Drivon told Reuters that after several years with occupancy rates at only

slightly above 50 per cent the figures were improving in line with and increasing

number of tourists.

"For 1996 we expect and occupancy rate of about 70 per cent.

"By the end of May we had 73 per cent occupancy, and July and August are normally

very good for business while for October, November and December we already have a

lot of bookings.

"In 1996, we should come back to the 1992 level, " said Drivon, referring

to a period when occupancy was at 90 per cent during the 22,000-strong UNTAC mission.
