VietNamNet Bridge - The Cambodian Tourism Administration has announced it will invest $3.7 million in a infrastructure project in Kep City, 170 kilometers from Pnompenh in the Southeast, with the aim of attracting tourists from Vietnam.

Thanks to cooperation with Vietnam and Thailand, the project will open a cruise ship route between Kep City in Cambodia and Ha Tien in Vietnam to meet the increasing demands of Vietnamese tourists to travel to Cambodia.

Moreover, Cambodia will quickly upgrade Xihanucvin international airport to attract more foreign tourists.

In 2007, the Cambodian tourism sector set a target of greeting 2 million tourists, up 300,000 people against 2006.
