Cambodia receives 1.79 million foreign tourists in 2013
July 13, 2013

Cambodia has attracted 1.79 million foreign visitors in the first five months of this year, up 19% compared with the 1.5 million tourists in the same period last year.

The Cambodian Tourism Ministry has revealed that during the January-May period, Vietnam 341,000 visitors came from Vietnam, up 11% year-on-year, followed by South Korea with 215,200 visitors, up 5%, and China with 202,400 tourists, up 53%.

Neighbouring countries, Laos and Thailand, ranked fourth and fifth on the list of tourist's country of origin with 146,300 Laotians and 96,000 Thais visited Cambodia during the five-month period, up 80% and 23% respectively.

About 49% of visitors came to Cambodia by air, 49% by land and the rest by waterway.

Tourism is one of the sectors supporting the economy in this impoverished South-east Asian nation. Last year, the country received some 3.5 million foreigners, earning more than US$2 billion.

The Cambodian Tourism Ministry expects the country to receive around 4 million foreign tourists this year.

Cambodia is well-known for its 12th century Angkor Wat Temple, a world heritage site, which is situated about 315 kilometers northwest of Phnom Penh, capital of Cambodia.

Also, a pristine coastline, which is one of the world's most beautiful bays, stretches in the length of 450 kilometres in four provinces of Koh Kong, Preah Sihanouk, Kampot and Kep.
