VietNamNet Bridge - Vietnam ranks third following the Republic of Korea (RoK) and Japan on the number of tourists visiting Cambodia in the first quarter of this year.

According to the Cambodia Tourism Ministry, thanks to favorable travel between Vietnam and Cambodia, more Vietnam tourism companies attach importance to exploiting well-known tourist attractions in the country such as Angcovat, Angcothom in Siem Riep, Phnom Penh Capital and coastal Kongpongxom.

Aiming to further attract foreign tourists to Cambodia in the upcoming time, the Cambodia Tourism Ministry set a plan to upgrade infrastructure system, speed up tourism cooperation with Greater Mekong Sub-region countries, invest in building sea and airports to support transport activities and pick up foreign tourists to Cambodia.

The country’s tourism sector is expected to attract an estimated more than 2.3 million foreign tourists in 2008.
