Cambodia registered in total 199,067 domestic tourists during the weekend of Feb. 19-20, according to Tourism Minister H.E. Thong Khon.

Among the domestic visitors, 188,081 were national tourists and 10,986 were foreign tourists, he said, adding that the number of visitors saw a decrease of 9.44 percent compared to the previous weekend due to Omicron variant.

The most visited tourist destination last weekend was Preah Sihanouk coastal province, followed by Phnom Penh capital, and the provinces of Pursat, Battambang, Siem Reap, and Kampot.

The Ministry of Tourism and the Provincial and Municipal Tourism Departments continued to promote the implementation of standard operating procedures (SOPs) introduced by the ministry to prevent possible transmission of COVID-19.
