respected travel website Go-Myanmar.com has teamed up with INGO Business
Innovation Facility to establish the country’s first Travel Hubs in Hpa-an and
Travel Hubs aim to give
more comprehensive, on-the-ground information and connections to travellers in
the locality and assist them with booking guides, transport and accommodation.
Displays at the Travel Hubs present tourists with options of activities to do,
sights to see and experiences to have in and around the area.
The Hubs also support
local businesses and tourism services by sharing information about them and connecting
tourists to them directly without any cost.
In Hpa-an, where the
Travel Hub is located in Veranda Cafe near Kanthaya Lake, one can book a guided
tour of the famous caves with local English students for example. But lesser
known activities around Hpa-an are also listed as options – namely visiting a
traditional weaving workshop and learning to weave.
The Dawei Travel Hub is
located in Tavoy Kitchen, a restaurant just off the main street in the town and
it offers travellers information and facilities for making bookings for Dawei
as well as for the rest of Myanmar.
It is planned for more
Travel Hubs to be established around Myanmar in the future.
