Travel companies in Cambodia’s Siem Reap province have changed their operations to target more domestic tourists.

The move comes after hotels report more than 90 percent occupancy rates for the upcoming Khmer New Year replacement holiday.

Business changes include hotels dropping room rates as well as restaurants and bars offering a more Khmer-friendly atmosphere with live bands, karaoke and local food.

Governor of Siem Reap province Tea Seiha said that his province is preparing to receive more domestic tourists during the upcoming holiday and provincial authorities have organised new programmes to maintain arrivals in the future.

Seiha also announced some of the area’s draft programmes, including more religious events, food competitions, floating market visits as well as adventure programmes such as cycling, boat rides and golf days.
