PHNOM PENH: Cambodia has been named as the world’s best tourist destination for its rich heritage, public safety and friendliness of its people.
The country won the accolade from the Pacific Area Travel Writers Association’s (PATWA) International Travel Award for Best Destination despite the global coronavirus outbreak that has dampened the global tourism industry.
PATWA’s Cambodia chapter chairman Thourn Sinan said the award for the Best Destination would boost the nation’s global popularity..
Tourism Ministry spokesman Chuk Chumno told the Khmer Times that the award was set to be presented in Berlin later in the month, but it had been postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
