Tourism has been booming in the border town of Myawady since the government opened the crossing as an international gateway for foreign visitors on August 28, sources say.
The Ministry of Hotels and Tourism has also encouraged the establishment of tourism agencies in Myawady, according to Ni Ni Toe, managing director of Green Dawna Hill Travel & Tour Co. Ltd.
“Since the government opened Myawady as a gateway for tourists, travel and tours in Myanmar are booming. I also want to show that local women can lead a business as well as anyone. I look forward to sharing with tourists our country’s sights, customs and culture, our influential pagodas and our natural attractiveness, providing the best services at fair prices,” she said at her tour company’s grand opening.
Shwe Myanmar Travel & Tour, Moe Ko San Travel & Tour, Vega Myawady International Travel & Tour and Green Dawna Hill Travel & Tour Co. Ltd. are among the first tourism services businesses to open at the border crossing, and more travel and tour companies are planning to open in Myawady.
