Cambodia Stakes Claim To Riviera Title
Up and coming Asian destination Koh Rong has released a long ranging tourism master plan which the developer The Royal Group is touting to become the next Phuket, Bali and Samui.
Starting from scratch the planning which has combined Hong Kong firm MAPS, environmental consultant Scott Wilson and CBRE Thailand's Chairman David Simister.
A long term phasing of hotels ranging from midscale to luxury properties, multiple golf courses and no less than 28 white sand beaches.
Talks are underway with a number of hotel operators and property firms to participate in development opportunities.
For many the Riviera moniker is perhaps a bit redundant but certainly head are turning to Cambodia in the quest to tap into what some say could be the next big tourism destination for the region.
