The kingdom celebrated the holiday from Wednesday to Friday.
"Although there was rainfall in many provinces, most of the tourist destinations still attracted crowds of tourists," the report said. "Security and public order had been well secured during the festival."
The kingdom's main tourist spots are the famed Angkor Archeological Park in northwestern Siem Reap province, the 440km coastline stretching over four southwestern provinces, and the eco-tourism sites in northeastern provinces.
The report said the Ministry of Tourism had advised all tourist destinations to properly follow anti-pandemic measures such as body's temperature scanning, handwashing with alcohol, mask wearing, and social distancing.
The South-East Asian country has so far recorded a total of 275 confirmed COVID-19 cases, said a Ministry of Health's statement on Saturday, adding that none have died and 274 have recovered.
Meanwhile, On Friday (Sept 18), Six people were killed and four others injured by a lightning strike during a torrential rain in northwest cambodia's Battambang province, said Battambang provincial governor Nguon Ratanak on Friday.
The tragic incident took place at 6.15pm local time on Thursday in Boeung Thmuoy village of Rukhak Kiri district when the victims, who were relatives, gathered for a dinner under a stilt house on the Pchum Ben festival, or Ancestor's Day.
"Six people, including two women, were killed outright and four others got wounded by the lightning strike," the governor told Xinhua over telephone, adding that the injured are currently receiving treatment at a local hospital.
Lightning occurs every year in Cambodia, particularly in the rainy season from May to October.
In 2019, at least 95 Cambodians, mostly rural residents, were killed by lightning strikes and 83 others injured, according to the annual report of the National Committee for Disaster Management. - Xinhua
