Traveling in Times of Coronavirus

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us.

Most airlines are basically doing a scam job of advertising flights,getting the money in then cancelling the flight and giving vouchers,which may or may not be worth the paper they are printed on.

Tourism Minister Thong Khon and Australian Ambassador to Cambodia Pablo Chiho Kang discuss direct flights connecting the two countries. Ministry of Tourism

Australia urged to get direct flight links off the ground

The Ministry of Tourism has called on the Australian government to speed up work on direct flights between the countries, hoping to promote more tourist arrivals from Australia to the Kingdom.

The plan was discussed in bilateral talks this week between Tourism Minister Thong Khon and Australian Ambassador to Cambodia Pablo Chiho Kang, during which they exchanged insights into tourist arrivals to start post-COVID-19.

Currently, there are no direct flights between Australia and Cambodia, with passengers having to transit commonly in Singapore, Bangkok or Hong Kong.

“We believe that having direct flights between the two countries will certainly encourage the number of Australian tourists. Tourist arrivals from the country to Cambodia have seen a remarkable increase in recent years,” he said. The Kingdom welcomed 6.6 million foreign tourists last year, of which 123,253 were Australian, a 3 percent hike over the year before.

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

No free stuff if traveling in Australia's NT unlike good old third world Cambodia

People arriving in the Northern Territory from interstate will no longer have to undergo 14 days of mandatory hotel quarantine from June 15, a requirement which cost travellers $2,500.
"Arrivals from interstate will be able to choose their own quarantine arrangements, as long as it is appropriate within the guidelines directed by the Chief Health Officer — whether it is in their own home, in private accommodation or in commercial accommodation at their own cost," Mr Gunner said.

I don't think they're talking about Pochentong, but future times, when the multi billion airport in the Iron Man's back garden is finished.

Perhaps Australia should ease the tourist visa restrictions to encourage more Cambodians to visit also
