According to the Directorate of Hotels and Tourism, the One Tourist-One Tree programme will be launched in coming July, allowing international tourists to plant commemorative trees in Nay Pyi Taw, Bagan, Mandalay, Yangon, Chaungtha, and Ngwehsaung.
The One Tourist-One Tree programme aims to promote responsible tourism service among international visitors to Myanmar and to increase biodiversity, making the environment lush and green.
“In order for tourists visiting Myanmar to plant trees, the One Tourist-One Tree programme will be implemented in six destinations: Nay Pyi Taw, Bagan, Yangon, Mandalay, Ngwehsaung, and Chaungtha, from July to November this year. Foreign tourists in individuals or in groups visit Myanmar, and some come under the arrangements of travel companies. We coordinate with travel companies to plant trees wherever international tourists visit,” said an official from the Directorate of Hotels and Tourism.
From January to May 2024, more than 100,000 international travellers have entered the country by air, with most of the tourists coming from China and Thailand. — ASH/TKO
