Mingun cultural area is one of the famous destinations for globetrotters who arrive in Mandalay.
Mingun area is easily accessible from Mandalay by car, bicycle and motorcycle. But, the globetrotters visit the area by motorboat departing Mayangyan Jetty in Mandalay.
The tourists prefer to pay visits to Mingun by boat along Ayeyawady River so as to enjoy the scenic beauty along the both banks of the river.
Over 600 tourists were transported from Mayangyan jetty of Mandalay to Mingun in November 2013, in comparison with about 500 in November 2014. Most of the tourists came from China, Thailand, France and Italy.
“We give transport services to tourists from Mandalay Port to Bhamo, Bagan and Hkamti three times this year. The Tourists Waterway Transport Association is formed with about 50 motorboats,” chairman of the association U Thet Tun said.–Tin Maung (Mandalay)
