A total of 400 hotels, motels and guest houses are situated in Shan State, and currently, 337 are operating, so southern Shan State is a region that can attract tourists all the year round.
Currently, Kalaw in southern Shan State is being developed and implemented as a tourist town, and Chinese and Russian language courses have also been opened as basic language courses for employees working in hotels and motels so that foreign tourists can visit without difficulty. — ASH/KZL
