Scenic spots in Shan State (South) and Nawnghkio Cloud Sea that attract tourists.

According to U Htin Aung Naing, Director of the Directorate of Hotels & Tourism (Shan State), arrangements are being made to provide tourism businesses operating based on scenic places of Shan State with relevant licenses.
“In Shan State, some businessmen are implementing new tourism-related accommodation projects in the tourist hotspots. For example, there are other new places where clouds can be seen, such as the Nawnghkio Cloud Sea. We will discuss this with the local tourism committees to determine whether or not licenses should be granted for these new establishments. To issue them licenses, the cases must be presented step by step up to the state level for approval,” he explained.
“Currently, many cloud-gazing and scenic-viewing camps are being implemented in Shan State, and tourists are also entering. By issuing them licenses, the businesses will become legal, and from this, the state will receive taxes, and tourists can be provided with safety measures,” U Htin Aung Naing added.
Myanmar’s leading tourist destinations are Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan and Shan State’s Inlay areas. There are over 400 hotels, motels and guest houses in Shan State, and currently 337 are operating. The southern part of Shan State is an area with tourists all year round.
In addition, Kalaw City in southern Shan State is being developed as a tourism city, and Chinese and Russian basic language courses have been offered to employees working in hotels and motels so that tourists from those countries can visit without a language barrier. — ASH/TH
