Tourism establishments in Cambodia gradually reopen as COVID-19 situation eases

Tourism businesses in Cambodia have gradually reopened after the situation of COVID-19 in the kingdom has eased, Tourism Ministry’s secretary of state Tith Chantha said on Thursday.

Some 3,135 tourism establishments such as hotels, guesthouses, restaurants, massage-spa parlors, karaoke clubs, nightclubs, beer gardens, and tour and travel operators had been either closed or suspended between March and July due to the impact of COVID-19 pandemic, affecting over 110,000 workers.

“To date, about 30 percent of the closed or suspended tourism establishments have been reopened thanks to the demand of domestic tourists, as the number of foreign visitors to the kingdom is still very few,” Chantha said during a press conference here.
