Myanmar expects 35 percent increase in Singaporean arrivals
Tourism ministry expects 35 percent increase in the number of Singaporean tourists due to the visa exemption between Myanmar and Singapore started on December 1.
In the announcement released by Myanmar Tourism Marketing (MTM), union minister for tourism U Ohn Maung said more Singaporeans will visit Myanmar if the country can attract them.
“I do expect a 35 percent increase of Singaporeans travelling to Myanmar if we successfully promote the variety of tourist attractions the country has to offer. Myanmar is safe, excellent to travel the whole year round, and Myanmar food is certainly something to come back for over and over again,” the minister said.
The visa exemption between Myanmar and Singapore allows 30-day stay without applying visa.
There was also a high-level tourism business matching among Myanmar and Singapore companies this week and served a lead up to the first Myanmar Tourism Festival, which is set to hold in Singapore in January next year.
MTM is a part of Myanmar Tourism Federation and aims to promote the country as a sustainable tourism destination.
