Mandalay, the former royal capital with cultural monuments, has rich tourism resources. The related ministry and Mandalay Region Administration Council are jointly carrying out the tourism development activities to explore the destinations.
“Of tourism resources in the region, the creation of ecotourism sites based on the Dokhtawady River will also effectuate the development of the tourism-related businesses beyond tourism promotion. The tourism sector relies more on local travellers rather than tourists amid the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. The plan is especially to attract more local residents with innovative eco-friendly tourism models,” he said.
Furthermore, the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism is planning to promote travel packages from Mandalay to adventure tours in PyinOoLwin, train travel in Shan State, Irrawaddy Dolphin tour in Sagaing Region and community-based tourism sites.—Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-printing House)
