THE Mawtinson pagoda festival, one of the most famous pagoda festivals in Myanmar, will be held for a month from the full moon of Tabo – dwel to the full moon of Ta- baung, according to a member of the committee working on the festival.
Vessels from the Yangon- Mawtin jettey and Phonegyi Street jetty are slated to transport pilgrims during the festival.
Roads have already been built at milepost 95/6 to provide access to the hill by car. Two hotels with 50 rooms each are already open for business there. Pilgrims can enjoy the beauty of the beach, MwayTaung Yaychoeseik and rest well, he added.
