Naga New Year Festival to draw larger number of foreign visitors



Yangon December 15

Naga Traditional New Year Festival is an annual festival of Naga tribes held in Naga Self- Administered Zone in Sagaing Township and is one of few tribal festivals in Myanmar that particularly attracts foreign tourists.

According to bookings so far, local tour operators predict that the festival which will be held in January next year would draw larger number of foreign visitors compared to previous years.

“Until four-five years ago, foreign travellers did not know about that festival. But the festival became popular online two years ago, and foreign visitors started to visit the festival,” said Daw Myint Swe, owner of Myint Travel Agency.

The festival will be held on January 12 to 16. According to tour operators, most of the foreign travellers are from Europe. 

Last year, the self-administered zone which is made up of Lahe, Leshi and Nanyun townships, received 48 foreign travellers. The coming festival is also expected to draw local travellers from four corners of the country.
