The plan is underway to implement a hotel zone project. The plot of land is 60 acres wide. The project is a part of ecotourism development and the hotel zone will be near Shwesettaw pagoda’s precinct in Minbu district, said U Myint Sein, the regional head of the Directorate of Hotels and Tourism in Magway. The environment of forests, mountains and land near Shwesettaw remains intact. The 60-acre land is located beyond Hletin Bridge, near Shwesettaw. Authorities have already granted permission to implement the hotel zone with the approval of the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation and the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism.
“The relevant departments are coordinating to draw the map. After drawing the map, they will design the structure of the hotel zone as to where the forest will be, where the lake will be and the hotel will be built on how many acres of land etc. ‘‘After that, we will submit the proposal. We will get the guidelines from the regional government and invite the investment companies and private entrepreneurs,” he stated. The ecotourism project will be based in nature, elephant camps, Shwesettaw wildlife sanctuary, the high standard hotels and motels and bamboo houses. It is aimed to attract not only the local travellers but also the foreign travellers, he added. The location is above the 3,819 feet of sea level. The nature, coffee farming, organic farming, the custom of local residents, local products and foods can attract the outside visitors. The project is expected to start implementing in February 2021 before the Shwesettaw pagoda festival, according to the Directorate of Hotels and Tourism in Magway. — Zayyatu (Magway)(Translated by Hay Mar)
