Preah Sihanouk province governor Kuoch Chamroeun described his province’s tourism potential to Thailand’s ambassador to Cambodia Cherdkiat Atthakor, saying that Cambodia has 30 islands 175km of beautiful beaches to attract Thai investors.

He also said that Preah Sihanouk province also has two sea stacks and five coral reefs. The province is also developing a deep port in cooperation with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to expand port capacity to dock big ships.

The province also has the airport with the longest runway in Cambodia, special economic zones, and the first expressway in Cambodia which enables travel from Phnom Penh to the province in just a few hours.

Atthakor said that his embassy will help promote news of the development of Preah Sihanouk province. During the Sea Festival, he said that Thai business people will join the expo and that a concert group from Chanthaburi would also come to the festival.
