Places of traditional significance are proving a draw for tourists this year, with visitors showing interest in observing the traditions and cultures of the ethnic people and traveling to areas where the ancient cultural mores and traditions of the ethnic people still remain intact.
Recently, a group of eight tourists — seven Germans and one Swiss national — arrived at the Yangon International Airport under an arrangement with Diethelm Travel Ltd., and under the supervision of the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism. Their visit lasted from 11 January to 18 January.
The tourists visited Yangon-Heho-Inle region. On 14 January, they hired three motor vehicles and traveled along the Pindaya-Mandalay-Poppa-Bagan Yangon route. On 18 January, they flew out of the country from the Yangon International Airport.
Tourists are nowadays showing greater interest in visiting new destinations created by the authorities. The authorities have also relaxed the rigid rules and regulations imposed on tourists in many aspects.
The Ministry of Hotels and Tourism is making efforts to develop the hotels and tourism sector in Myanmar by ensuring the convenience of the tourists. —GNLM (Translated by Hay Mar)
