Three-storey vessel designed into floating entertainment centre at Botahtaung jetty bridge

Taw Win Chan Thar Co., Ltd. has rented a three-storey vessel named Pyigyidagun No 3 from the Inland Water Transport for a long term and has been refurbishing the vessel to establish it as a floating centre at Botahtaung Jetty Bridge No 5 in Yangon within six months.
“Since we rented the Pyigyidagun No 3 three-storey vessel in November, we have been decorating it at a shipyard. Jetties are also being renovated,” said Inland Water Transport (Delta Area) Manager U Kyaw Htoo Aung. “The floating restaurant is a long-term lease from the department in order for the middle class to visit there. Construction is underway with the permission of the Port Authority at the Botahtaung Bridge No 5.”
Managing Director of Taw Win Chan Thar said, “We will implement this three-storey vessel to provide public recreation at a reasonable price. As an ethnic business person, we are preparing the vessel. Families will be able to stay there. The vessel is repaired by the department. Our company has been renovating the interior decoration for about two months. We are working hard to complete it early. The current plan is that we are allowed to open it as a bar and restaurant. If COVID-19 measures are lifted, we will be able to launch it within six months.”
In addition, since early January, the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism and the Union of Myanmar Travel Association have rented two cruise ships from the Inland Water Transport and have been operating the two ships as a pilot project in order that the general public can go on vacation on holidays.—Thant Zin Win (Translated by Maung Maung Swe)
