CAMBODIA is witnessing a growth in international visitors and as a result of this upturn a resort airport, which closed to commercial flights some five years ago, has been reopened. In the wake of civil unrest, Cambodia suffered a significant slump in tourist visitors but after nearly three decades of war, the country is becoming more and more popular with visitors. The majority of visitors are currently concentrated in the northwest of the country flying into Siem Reap, the gateway town to the world-heritage listed and key attraction of Angkor Wat, but the government is looking to attract visitors to other regions of the country. The Southwestern town of Sihanoukville is flanked by some of the more popular beach locations in the Asian country and its airport will initially be able to handle aircraft up to twin-engine turboprop size, but plans are already being made to enhance facilities at the airport to handle larger aircraft. Other airport in the northeast provinces of Ratanakiri and Stung Treng could also be opened in the coming months by offering visitors eco-tourism breaks in the region.
