So We have some interesting areas where people can learn what we come Macao in number. We used to one to ten talked about interesting facts about Macao. There are always a little bit of interactive games and location where Myanmar public takes photos about Macao.”
Last year, about 8000 Myanmar people paid visit to Macao. Myanmar Tourism Industry had developed but it lags behind if compared to the neighbouring countries, the Director General of Directorate of Hotels and Tourism said.
Director General, Directorate of Hotels and Tourism, Tint Thwin said "The government should spend more budgets for tourism sector - I think weakness in promotion and high cost of transportation and accommodation are the reasons – to attract tourists, we also need to focus on human resources development."
