All the stakeholders in the tourism industry, in coordination with related departments and authorities concerned, are required to exert concerted efforts for more sustainable tourism in six tourism zones of the Sagaing Region, U Aung Thu Oo, head of the Sagaing Region Directorate of Hotels and Tourism instructed.
Fifty-four tourism destinations have been explored in six tourism zones: Sagaing, Monywa, Shwebo, Kalay, Katha and Hkamti.
“Sagaing Region has 54 tourism sites. The stakeholders involved in the industry needed to make efforts in order to make tourism more sustainable. More importantly, we need to promote local products and delicacies so as to enhance the economic benefits and the wellbeing of the residents. Also, we need to focus on quality packaging and fair pricing,” said U Aung Thu Oo.
“The travellers usually like to buy souvenirs. We must promote our local products and culture for sustainable tourism,” he elaborated.
Authorities concerned and the Directorate of Hotels and Tourism are jointly striving for tourism development in the region, he added.
“The income is generated through the various services like hotels, restaurants, souvenir shops, domestic transport, etc. The local products with quality packaging will surely attract buyers,” he pointed out.
Local pilgrims mostly flock to Zalon Taung and the reclining figure called the Alaungdaw Kathapha. Normally, those places are crowded with pilgrims during the high season. — Lu Lay/GNLM
