Tourist arrivals to Mandalay have increased due to an expansion of Mandalay international flights, specifically the Mandalay-Bangkok-Yangon-Mandalay, Mandalay-Hong Kong and Mandalay-Gaya routes.
Additionally, tourists come to visit Mandalay through border gates by motorcycle or cars. Mandalay hosted a total of 374,221 tourists from January to October this year, mostly from China, Thailand, India, Singapore and Viet Nam. Tourists from Japan, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States also visited Mandalay.
Tourists like to tour the Bagan-Nyaung U cultural zone, the Ava cultural site and Pyin Oo Lwin.
To facilitate the tourists, in addition to three international airports — Yangon International Airport, Mandalay International Airport and Nay Pyi Taw International Airport, they are now permitted to enter the country via Kawthoung, Tachilek and Myawady land points of entry with a valid e-Visa.
