Sihanoukville, which is most famous for its casinos has been trying to concentrate more on attracting families to the coastal city, with Bay of Lights being a firm example of this.
Skyfest will also coincide with the sailing events being hosted as part of the 2023 SEA Games, which are being hosted in Cambodia. Answering a question directly from BPVE about potential synergy, Ian Tan CEO of Bay of Lights stated “With the sailing also happening in the city, this will truly be a great time to be in Sihanoukville. This will help make this a truly international event”.
