Sagaing Region has become a popular attraction for visitors as the authorities and relevant tour organizations started expanding new destinations in the Region beginning 2016.
According to local tour operators, the number of travellers who enquired about new destinations in Sagaing Region has significantly increased month by month.
One of tour operators said that the authorities should establish some development facilities including recreation resorts and structures in the areas with natural landscapes in partnership with local and foreign investors under the existing laws and regulations.
In modern time, both local and international visitors enjoy travelling not only in nearby destinations but in far-flung regions to get travel experience, he added.
The Ministry of Hotels and Tourism continues to implement ecotourism in resources-rich areas to promote the country’s tourism industry which can help raise the country’s earnings, develop local small-andmedium sized enterprises and create more job opportunities for local people.
Sagaing Region Chief Minister Dr Myint Naing took action against companies which illegally operated mining businesses in the region last year to boost no smoking industry in the region.
Ancient pagodas and temples as well as other historic objects can be found in some parts of the region. Those objects gradually faded away, a resident said.
The region authorities are now trying to introduce Zalonetaung Hill on Shwebo-Myitkyina Road, 28 miles from Indaw Township, Nwenyein Village in Shwebo District where has a lot of glaze ware workshops and Lezin modern village located in southeast of Monywa Town where the ministry targets to develop community-based tourism.
