Sihanoukville Authorities impose Island Environment Tax

Dear friends and business partners

Local authorities in Sihanoukville recently announced the implementation of a new environmental tax for guests who travel by boat to one of the islands off the coast. The Cambodian government issued a statement, clarifying that this tax will be used to maintain the environment of these up and coming tourism destinations off the Sihanoukville coast.

According to the statement, effective immediately, a fee of US$ 2 per person will be levied for all guests and visitors, traveling by boat from Sihanoukville to any of the islands. The fee will be collected for customers who have booked overnight accommodation on one of the islands and those who have booked full day excursions only.

Asian Trails Cambodia deeply regrets that this announcement reaches our office at this stage of the season yet requires implementing this fee in all our transportation rates to these islands from 1 October 2017 onward. Our customer service representatives and reservation executives will contact you individually about these newly-levied charges for existing bookings

Kindest regards
