Myanmar wants to lure Japanese tourists for best vacations

 Thursday, March 22, 2018 


Myanmar is targeting more Japanese travellers and tourists to visit the destinations for both long and short holidays.



The Myanmar Tourism Marketing Association is aiming 90% Japanese tour and media companies in an effort to attract more travellers from the country.



Myanmar Tourism Marketing Association is currently holding a familiarization trip for a Japanese group, which is touring marine and diving sites in Kawthaung. The group headed to Kawthaung where they visited hilltop pagodas and the Bayint Naung View point. Later they headed to Nyaung Oo Phee Island for snorkeling and diving.




Myanmar Tourism Marketing Association is supporting the Japanese tourism organizations and media companies because they believe such trips can achieve really good results. They are starting with Japan, and will organize more trips with people from other countries like South Korea.



Yasuyuki Suzuki, general manager of All Nippon Airways, said that the Japanese tourists don’t usually take long holidays like people from Europe, so they don’t have much time to stay in one place.



Japanese travellers want easy access to destinations for short periods. Currently, they have daily flights between Yangon and Japan, but the flights are not always full.


If the travelers can make a direct transit flight to Kawthaung or other destinations, that would be super.


The Myanmar Tourism Marketing Association chose the Tanintharyi Region on the Andaman Sea coast because it boasts 800 islands, most of which are still unspoiled. The underwater environment around the islands is pristine, the beaches are covered in white sand, and the coral reefs are amazing.
