Tourism reports 50 percent increase in two weeks

Recommended Posts

More than 250,000 tourists have visited popular destinations across the country over the last two weeks, an increase of almost 50 percent compared the previous fortnight in late April, according to the Ministry of Tourism.

 

Tourism Minister, Thong Khon, said that from May 4 – 17, the number of tourists significantly increased – with most choosing to visit “eco-tourism” sites in Sihanoukville, Kep, and Kampot in particular.

 

With more than 40 percent of those being Cambodian residents there are now plans to further expand the current domestic tourism movement, he added.

Did you notice this is about Cambodia? Unlike Thailand, Incoming flight were not forbidden there. Otherwise, it looks like you missed some news:

Alas Thailand could not be doing a better job of shooting itself in the foot. What tourists there are will flock to neighboring countries, and I hear the indians spend 10,000 bht (or equivalent) per day 🙂 My heart bleeds for Thailand AND Cambodia !

Tourism crashed by 95% or so. Even a 50% increase is hardly a drop in the bucket!
