Default Siem Reap Hotel Boom A Guaranteed Benefit – For Tourists


The Phnom Penh Post reports that the Siem Reap hotel boom may not be what
the city is bargaining for. By the end of this year, the total number of
rooms around Angkor Wat will jump from 3,691 (62 hotels) to 7,814 rooms
(87 hotels). The immediate result will be that luxury hotel prices could
drop from $100 a night to $50 a night, according to the article.

Sok Chenda said competition will lower prices and raise standards of
service. In highly competitive conditions, "Some suffer a lot, and
sometimes die because they are not very professional and not very
capable," he said. More competition can mean benefits for tourists, he

"Hotels are too expensive in Cambodia. As a client, as a tourist, I'm just
waiting (for the prices to drop)," he said.
The story raises other questions, too, including whether Siem Reap’s
infrastructure can take the pressure.
