Affordable guesthouses are readily available in Preah Sihanouk province, but tourists are unaware of them, Prime Minister Hun Sen said on Wednesday.
Speaking to nearly 20,000 garment workers in Kampong Speu province, Hun Sen ruled out high room rates as the reason why the number of tourists visiting Preah Sihanouk during this year’s Water Festival had fallen.
“Rates [of guesthouses] are inexpensive. Tourists just lack information and they went to other provinces,” he said, adding that not everyone visits Preah Sihanouk.
“Many of them visit Kep, Kampot, Koh Kong, Ratanakkiri, Mondulkiri, Stung Treng, Preah Vihear and other regions.”
