Tourism Product Development TOURISM PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT Often, cities that leave the most indelible impression on their visitors are those with distinct areas that exude an irresistible appeal. Cambodia itself is still not generally perceived to be a distinctive and multi-faceted destination because our various attractions, and some of which are not world-class, lack a unifying character that will create that subtle and yet pervasive sense of place. Therefore, to make our visitors stay in Cambodia truly memorable, longer stay the evolution and development of a unifying character of themes for our existing areas is essential.

Lodging and Food Service The number of tourists is remarkably increasing over years so hotel room must reply to their needs. It is necessary to forecast the hotel room demands for the coming years. HRIT = (T x ALS x 98 %) / (365 x 1.7) HRIT = Hotel Room for Inbound Tourists T = Tourist Arrivals ALS = Average Length of stay (5.8 days in 2002) 98 % = 98 % of Tourist stay in hotel (Report on recapitulation of tourism year , MOT) 1.7 = Average bed per room (Report on recapitulation of tourism year , MOT)
