U Htay Aung, Union Minister for Hotels and Tourism said at the press conference, Myanmar still keeps the target of 5 million tourists, satisfying the ministry plan. In the coming time, Myanmar tourism is expected to attract a huge number of visitors in the coming time. At the end of December, Myanmar welcomed 4,7 million and we’re awaiting 5 million by the end of March next year. Ministry for Hotels and Tourism forecasts the figure will be increased up to 7,5 million by 2020.
“Myanmar tourism will be more developed if transportation is improved,” said he. Myanmar has a lot of tourist spots, but they need better transportation. Travelers find it is faster to get Mount Hkakaborazi in northern Kachin State or Myeik Archipelago. In addition to abundant natural resources, Myanmar is making news attractions in some destinations to extend tourism, improve the basic infrastructure.
