Sea Festival to be held in Kampot
25 July 2019
The Ministry of Tourism on Tuesday announced that this year’s Sea Festival will be held in Kampot province on December 20-22.

This year marks the eighth edition of the event, which is held on one of the four coastal provinces on a rotating basis.

The Ministry predicts that this year the event will attract 500,000 visitors, and has encouraged local businesses to participate, saying it will allow them to showcase their products and services to both local and international visitors.

Kampot province is well-known for its agriculture products, particularly Kampot pepper and durian.

Ministry spokesperson Top Sopheak told Khmer Times on Tuesday that the event aims to promote the coastal areas to foreign and domestic travellers.

“It aims to increase tourist numbers and attract investment, as well as promote the development of the coastal areas,” he said.

According to Mr Sopheak, the government is planning to organise the festival in Preah Sihanouk province next year.

Kampot as Role Model for Food Street during Sea Festival 2019
AKP Phnom Penh, August 28, 2019 --
Tourism ministry and the local administration are committed to promote Kampot as a role model province for Food Street services during the December 2019 Sea Festival.

The commitment was agreed during a recent preparation meeting chaired by Minister of Tourism H.E. Thong Khon and Kampot Provincial Governor H.E. Cheav Tay at the provincial hall.

To achieve the set target, H.E. Thong Khon advised the provincial hall as well as concerned local authorities to ensure convenient and attractive infrastructure and support facilities for selected Food Street site, especially in the areas with impressive French colonial buildings.

The minister also underscored the importance of food quality and safety as well as sanitation and waste management for the service.

In addition to Food Street as a committed priority during the December 20-22 Sea Festival, the preparation meeting also touched on security, improved transportation service, clean beaches, site decoration, diversification of local tourist destinations, and beyond.

As a host of the 8th Sea Festival, Kampot expects to attract some 500,000 visitors during the celebration this year.

‘Food Street’ to be built in Kampot ahead of Sea Festival

Kampot will be the first province to have a ‘Food Street’, an area with dozens of vendors offering local delicacies as part of a government scheme.

‘Food Street’ is a government-sponsored programme to attract more tourists to Cambodia by enhancing access to high-quality and hygienic local dishes.

The ‘Food Street’ in Kampot will be the first of many, each one highlighting the local delicacies of each province.

The Ministry said Kampot was chosen as a model for the scheme because the province will soon host the eight Sea Festival, an important event held every year on a different coastal province on a rotating basis.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.
