Myanmar Tourism Marketing (MTM) and the Myanmar Tourism Federation (MTF) have signed an MoU with Myanmar model-actor Paing Takhon to collaborate on a number of market development initiatives to encourage more Thai tourists to Myanmar.
Paing Takhon was also appointed by MTM in a year-long role as Myanmar’s tourism ambassador to promote the country among the youth population in Thailand.
Thailand is the second largest tourist market source for Myanmar, after China. There are about 25 daily direct flights between Thailand (Bangkok and Chiang Mai) and Myanmar (Yangon, Mandalay and Naypyitaw) which opens many opportunities to further boost tourist arrivals from Thailand and beyond.
Targeting the regional markets, MTF will continue to promote Myanmar’s core destinations as well as new destinations through roadshows, trade shows and media fam trips for journalists.
