Cambodia has one main attraction, Angkor Wat, but it is now poised to capitalize on its growth by promoting places beyond the temple complex’s ancient walls. And the country will now try to emulate the neighbouring tourist-magnet Thailand – for example by way of a new government-organised annual travel mart.
Cambodia saw five million international tourists in 2016. It’s still modest compared to neighbouring Thailand’s 30 million international arrivals last year, but the number is nonetheless impressive for a still-developing tourism industry.
