Union Minister for Hotels and Tourism Dr Htay Aung instructed that it is important to have accurate information and good services when it comes to providing services to tourists. He made this remark during a meeting with locals attending the awareness-raising seminar for guiding domestic tourists, conducted at Thiri Pyitsaya Sakura Hotel on 16 May.
He said there are more than 3,800 ancient pagodas in Bagan, and local and international tourists are interested in visiting Bagan because of its architectural works, design, and mural paintings. Especially domestic tourists mainly visit significant pagodas and they are guided by the locals who explain the history of the pagoda, he continued. He said he believed the attendees will provide services well by applying the facts such as a warm welcome to guests, placement, explanation, and adding the need to promote local-made products.
The five-day awareness-raising seminar was attended by 147 local people, and Union Minister Dr Htay Aung handed over certificates to those who completed the awareness-raising seminar. A total of 51,921 domestic pilgrims visited Bagan in February, according to the Department of Hotels and Tourism (Bagan Branch). — Htun Htun/GNLM
