CRUISES along the Chindwin and Ayeyawady rivers are expected to attract more tourists in the upcoming tourist season, according to the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism.
With more than million visitors as of September this year, some expect up to five million foreign visitors to Myanmar throughout the 2015-16 fiscal year, said ministry official Daw Daw Khin Than Win.
The annual number of international visitors to the country has increased from more than 1 million in 2012 to about 3.8 million in 2014.
Nine Australian tourists cruised up the Chindwin River from 13 to 18 September from Kalaywa to Homalin, while eight Americans took a six-day cruise along the same route aboard the R V Katha Pandaw under an arrangement with Royal Co Ltd and the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism.
