Cambodia is a country in southeast Asia (see Figure 1). It has experienced rapid increases in tourism over the past decade. The travel and tourism industry is vital for the country’s economic growth. It directly contributes 11.5% to Cambodia’s gross domestic product (GDP), raising $2.2 billion and providing 12.4% of Cambodia’s working population with jobs. Moreover, the growth of tourism has attracted strong interest from overseas investors, such as China, seeking to develop tourist areas for their own economic benefit.
