Eager local visitors have already booked some tour packages for Thingyan, which is due to arrival in April, according to travel companies and visitors.
“There are ticket bookings for Thingyan. Advanced bookings have already been made at Chaungtha and Ngwehsaung, and they are likely to be larger in the second half of the month. People go on vacations in Thingyan because it has long holidays,” said an official from a travel company.
A woman who had made preparations to take a vacation in the Thingyan period said she had booked a trip to Chaungtha Beach to relax with her family.
“Thingyan has long holidays, so visitors usually flock to beaches. That is why I have already booked. We are planning to go to Chaungtha for relaxation,” said Ma Yati from Botahtaung township.
In addition to Bagan, Kalaw, Inlay, Taunggyi, Chaungtha, Ngwehsaung and the beaches near Yangon, domestic travellers have also taken day trips to newly developed destinations and overseas trips in recent years.
In Myanmar’s tourism industry, the domestic tourism sector has sharply increased, and foreign tourist arrivals have also mounted in 2023. By November 2023, local visitor arrivals were 8.85 million, and foreign tourist arrivals again reached more than one million, enormously increasing year on year, according to the statistics of the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism. — MT/ZS
