TOURIST arrivals to Chaungtha Beach are expected to reach about 100,000 per day during the Thingyan Traditional Water Festival in April of this year, said U Kyaw Khaing, chairman of Chaungtha Zone Hoteliers Association.
Chaungtha Beach is a popular resort and one of the top tourist attractions in Myanmar. It is about a five-hour drive from the commercial capital of Yangon.
The beach hosted about 100,000 visitors daily during the festival last year. Not only hotels and guesthouses but homes of residents were crowded with visitors at home and abroad.
The Chaungtha Zone Hoteliers Association put forth concerted efforts to attract more visitors by implementing effective environmental conservation programmes to sustain the natural beauty of the beach in cooperation with the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism and relevant organisations. The Chaungtha Beach attacks more local visitors than foreigners, while Ngwehsaung Beach receives lots of international travellers.—200
