New crossing on Cambodia-Laos border opens, to boost tourism

CambodiaBoosting the ties between the two countries, a new crossing on the Cambodia-Laos border, the Trapeang Kreal international border gate, opened officially on Tuesday.

The crossing connects Cambodia’s Stung Treng province with Laos’ Champasak province.


Thonglien Sibounthien, managing director of Viengchampa Tour in the Laos city of Luang Phrabang, said on Monday the opening of the border gate will not only facilitate tourism but also boost trade between the countries.


“Opening the border is really good and that is very important for both of us. It means better income,” he said.


The opening of the gate follows the state visit by the new Laos prime minister to Cambodia in June.


At the time Sibounthien urged Cambodia to increase trade and investment in its northern neighbour because commerce between the two countries was small and there was ample room for expansion.


Laos is number five on the list of international visitors to Cambodia, the Cambodia Tourism Ministry said.
