The Union National Races Village near Thanlyin bridge in Thakayta Township of Yangon Region is crowded with people. If the construction of the wharf at the Union National Races Village completes, the sea route will be more transparent and it can lure the visitors more.
The recreation place located near the Bago River can be reached via road and the visitors can get there by riding the Star City water bus that operates from Pansodan Jetty. Moreover, the foreign travellers as well as local visitors can get there by cruise ship from the Pansodan jetty of Yangon.
The wharf will be constructed near the MV-705 shipyard on the side of the Bago River and officials invite the tender, and it is expected to be completed during this year.
“If the wharf completes, we will cooperate with hotels and tourism and expand the water bus station for foreigners. Moreover, we will operate the Star City water bus to dock for local travellers. The staff will provide healthcare services for the public. The people can take a rest by paying K500 for the entrance fee and we invite the public to relax,” said Director U Myo Win of the Union National Races Village(Yangon).
The 186-foot-long wharf will be constructed by the tender-winning company during this fiscal year and the new services will be also provided for local/foreign travellers by River Cruise.
The Village hosts visitors between 400 and 500 per day on weekdays and about 2,000 on weekends. It also provides traditional dance performances of ethnic people daily.
If the wharf on 117 acres wide National Races Village is completed, the services well be provided so that foreigners can cook the traditional food of ethnic people by themselves. — Nyein Thu(MNA)/GNLM
