Bagan draws 20,000+ holidaymakers during Christmas holiday

Bagan Ancient Cultural Zone welcomed over 20,000 holidaymakers during the Christmas holidays, according to the Department of Hotels and Tourism (Bagan branch).
U Myo Min Aung, deputy director of the department, said: “Many visitors from across the country, including Yangon, Mandalay, and Nay Pyi Taw, visited Bagan during Christmas. Most were pilgrims arriving to pay homage to the famous pagodas.”
Situated in NyaungU Township, Mandalay Region, the zone is one of Myanmar’s major tourist destinations. It remains bustling with foreign and local visitors throughout the year, especially during public holidays.
Bagan experienced a temporary closure to visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 until February 2021. Tourism authorities have since permitted visitors to explore temples and pagodas, ensuring compliance with COVID-19 health guidelines.
The zone is renowned for its unspoiled ancient religious buildings and attracts domestic and international travellers. — ASH/NT
