A resort camp that features saunas and hot springs as treatment for joint pain, skin diseases and female ailments was officially re-inaugurated in Nay Pyi Taw on Saturday.
The Nay Pyi Taw Hot Spring Resort Camp was first opened on April 9, 2010 with four bungalows and one six-room sauna. Recently added were two duplex sauna rooms added to two exterior sauna ponds for males, two exterior sauna ponds for females, three recreation halls and separate dressing rooms for men and women.
Dr Myo Aung, chairman of Nay Pyi Taw Council, and members, Nay Pyi Taw City Development Committee members, members of a Kayin traditional dance troupe and other officials participated in the second inauguration ceremony of the camp on Saturday morning.
A ribbon cutting began the commemoration of Panglong Township resort, followed by the spraying of the camp’s signboard with scented water.
Afterwards, the chairman and members observed the Kayin Traditional Dance (Wahnyat Aka) and inspected the interior of the camp.
The camp is situated near the village of Taungkya in Panglong, accessible by motor vehicles plying between Nay Pyi Taw and Panglong.
