Cambodia’s tourism expected to recover after two years of slump

Cambodia’s tourism industry is projected to rebound in 2022 after a two-year significant fall due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a tourism official said on Tuesday (Feb 1).

The kingdom received 1.3 million international tourists in 2020, down 80 per cent from 2019, and the number had further declined by another 85 per cent to 196,495 in 2021, a Ministry of Tourism report showed.

“We expect that the number of foreign tourists to Cambodia will begin to recover from this year thanks to our country’s re-opening to fully-vaccinated travellers,” Kong Sopheareak, director of statistics and planning department of the Ministry of Tourism, told Xinhua.
