The international port of Kampot, a major attraction for attracting tourists
The international tourist port of Kampot in Cambodia will become a magnet to attract more tourists to the country.
The note was highlighted by Thong Khon, Minister of Tourism during the recent inspection of the port construction site with the provincial leaders of Kampot in the Teuk Chhou district of Kampot province.
According to the Ministry of Tourism, construction of the Kampot International Port began on August 8, 2018 and has now reached around 84%, and construction of the passenger building is around 73% complete.
Construction of the port is expected to be completed at the end of 2021, the source continued.
The construction of the international tourist port of Kampot is financed by the ADB, which is part of the project to develop tourism infrastructure for inclusive growth in the Greater Mekong sub-region (GMS).
This international port will become a key international maritime gateway connecting the southern coastal part of the country and the province of Kampot to the world.
Once done, it has the capacity to handle around 1 million passengers and tourists.
The existence of the port will further develop Cambodian tourism, especially the resort town of Bokor in the province and other coastal destinations. Lim Nary – AKP
