Myanmar Tourism

Myanmar is slowly emerging as a tourism destination in a region that is a favourite among travellers worldwide. It has a wealth of attractions to draw visitors from abroad, including Yangon’s Shwedagon Pagoda and many other diverse cultural and historical sites. One of the main challenges is developing the accompanying tourism infrastructure and ensuring an adequate skills base to keep pace with the sector’s growth. This has proved difficult in the past for some of Myanmar’s neighbours, and many wonder if the country has the foundations in place to do a better job of balancing growth with sustainability and conservation. This chapter contains interviews with Daw Moe Moe Lwin, Director, Yangon Heritage Trust; and Jean Michel Romon, Managing Director, Balloons over Bagan.
