TWICE as many foreign tourists entered Cambodia through Chom International Gateway in Oddar Meanchey province during July, compared with any month in recent memory, officials said yesterday.
“We are surprised at the number of foreign tourists using this crossing,” said the gateway’s Cambodia-Thailand Relations Office deputy chief Touch Ra. “The number is double that of any month before.”
This really surprise that many tourists come to visit the place where the war about to begin, Anlong Veng is somewhere close to border between Cambodia and Thailand, at this moment there shouldn’t be a tourists would want to visit this place, somehow i believe those who willing to visit place like this must be journalists and researchers. because of what just happening, Cambodia’s government already plan to develop this area become tourist place, why don’t they just take some more time to observe whether the tourists are coming to Anlong Veng because of tourists attraction or just they came for research the fact about Cambodia and Thailand border in Chaos?
