International tourist arrivals to Myanmar reached 0.233 million in 2022, which represents a 78 per cent increase compared to 2021, including Russian tourists.
From January to May 2023, over 400,000 foreign tourists entered the country, with the majority coming from China, Thailand, Korea, Japan, India, Viet Nam, the United States, Malaysia and Singapore.
International travel exhibitions, which are frequently held in foreign countries, play a significant role in promoting Myanmar’s destinations.
