Sihanoukville expects 10 new hotels and 1,000 new rooms in 2018

According to the director of Sihanoukville’s tourism department, Taing Sochetkrisna, 10 new hotels and 1,000 new rooms will be built this year in Sihanoukville to meet the visitors’ rising demand for accommodation. The director added the construction of a number of 5-star hotels may finish this year or the next, with each hotel having 500 to 600 rooms. He explained that the province current 10,000 hotel and guesthouse rooms are insufficient, especially during weekends and festivals, and the situation is exacerbated by the fact that Chinese businesses have been leasing entire hotels and turning them into casinos. In 2017, Sihanoukville received one million local tourists and 470,000 foreign visitors. 120,000 of those visitors came from China. (Source: Khmer Times)
