Cambodians are increasingly travelling overseas for leisure, as the number of the Kingdom’s outbound tourists reached nearly two million last year, a trend that a tourism insider said was due to a change in spending habits of Cambodia’s middle-class.
The Ministry of Tourism’s 2018 report said the number of outbound Cambodian tourists topped 1.81 million between January and November last year – an increase of 12 per cent or 1.6 million compared to the whole of 2017. In 2016, the figure was 1.3 million.
