Ministry launches tourist sector app

The Ministry of Tourism has launched a new mobile app called Cambodia Best Hospitality, which aims to improve the sector, a ministry official said.

Chhay Khunlong, deputy director-general of the ministry’s tourist industry department, said on Thursday that the office was now working to promote the app and lift standards in the industry.

“We already have a website, and now we launched a mobile app in order to provide convenience for tourists and give them the tools to evaluate the quality and cleanliness of venues across the country,” he said.

‘Clean city’

Over 40 listings have initially been included in the directory, with various municipalities vying for the “clean city” distinction, said Khunlong.

“We want to promote the quality and standards of the tourism sector, so the app will help evaluate strengths and shortcomings,” he said
