The 7 Mile Resort, located on the Dokhtawady River at the Lonkaungpin village-tract in PyinOoLwin Township of Mandalay Region, is attracting crowds of visitors this summer.
The 7-Mile beach derives it name from the farm that was originally situated at the location near the 7/4 mile post. The beach is only 20 miles, or about an hour’s drive, from Mandalay and can be reached by car or motorbike.
The 7-Mile resort is quite popular among travelers making short trips to central Myanmar, especially in the summer. The resort offers several recreational and other activities to visitors.
As a tourist attraction in Mandalay Region, which enjoys a prominent place in Myanmar’s tourism sector, the 7-Mile beach can help create jobs for locals, improve their livelihood, and earn revenue for the region.
With its low cost facilities and scenic beauty, the 7-Mile beach is a draw for visitors headed to Mandalay Region.— Mg Thein (IPRD) (Translated by La Wonn)
