Cambodia and Vietnam co-operate in eco-tourism


In a two-day meeting with leaders of the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang, the Cambodian Tourism investigation corps, led by Mr. Thong Khon, Tourism Ministry Secretary of Cambodia, showed their interest in the province’s scenic beauty, infrastructure and tourism services, especially marine eco-tourism and the provincial mysterious caves.

Cambodian tourist officials hope to develop the special tourism form between Cambodia’s four provinces namely Kandal, Takeo, Kam Pot and Kompong Thom along the border with the southern Kien Giang province.

Tourism co-operation between Cambodia and Vietnam not only helps to develop the two countries' economy and society but also strengthens border security and politics.

The international trade between Cambodia and Vietnam is carried out through the Xa Xia border gate in Viet Nam, from which tourists can go to famous tourist attractions of Ha Tien-Kien Luong section within one hour by car.

For example, Thach Dong, Mui Nai, Hon Phu Tu (Father-Son island) tourist area are 2 km, 8km and over 30 km from Xa Xia respectively; moreover, it takes only one hour to travel by sea from Ha Tien to Kep City, the seaside-tourist city locating at Southwest of Phnom Penh.

Kien Giang will be an ideal tourism destination for Cambodian tourists once Phu Quoc Island is upgraded into an international-level clinical resort center and marine eco-tourism.

Tourists can enjoy the cross-country overland and sea tours.
