Myanmar sees influx of tourists since April

Over 300,000 international visitors have entered Myanmar since the beginning of the fiscal year on April 1, most coming from Thailand, according to immigration authorities.

“Visitors from Thailand rank first with over 50,000 in number, followed by China and Japan,” said an official from immigration control in Yangon International Airport.

Thai visitors mostly tour famous sites such as Shwedagon Pagoda, Kyitehteeyoe and Botahtaung pagodas.

According to the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism, Myanmar’s tourism sector seems to have developed more this year. Thailand has been top on the list of foreign visitors to Myanmar since last year.
