Koh Kong businesses told not to hike prices for New Year's

The Koh Kong Provincial Administration has appealed to owners of food businesses and hotels, guesthouses, and other facilities offering overnight accommodation in the southwestern coastal province not to increase prices for New Year's next weekend.

In a letter dated December 24, the administration underlined that a good portion of Cambodian and foreign travellers to the many attractions and tourism-receiving communities in the province would require a place to stay overnight.

“To allure more visitors – local and international – to Koh Kong province, the provincial administration requests that all hotels, guesthouses, rental rooms, restaurants, cafeterias and food stalls keep their current prices during the New Year celebrations,” it said.

The provincial authorities also held a meeting on December 24 on the appropriate preparations to ensure security and public order in the province during the weekend.

Acting provincial governor Sam Khit Vien called on the public to keep Koh Kong's districts tidy and the public toilets clean.

Clean homes and properties will also contribute to the overall beauty of the province, Khit Vien said.
