Myanmar to seek world heritage title for natural Spirulina lake The Nation Myanmar plans to nominate the natural Spirulina Lake, Twin Taung Lake, for inclusion on the Unesco world heritage list, according to local reports.
A dragon fish with intricate, maze-like markings on every scale, a frog with rough, chocolate-colored skin and a ginger plant are among more than two dozen flora and fauna species found in Myanmar since it emerged from a half-century of military rule and isolation.
Phyoe Wai Yar Zar was unequivocal: “Tourism in Myanmar is still in its infancy“, admitted the chairman of the national tourism marketing organization to journalists at ITB Berlin 2014. Increasing numbers of vacationers and business travellers are discovering this country, located between China and India, which only opened its borders three years ago.
Tourism has skyrocketed in Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, since opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi was released in 2010 after 20 years of house arrest. There is so much demand for beds that hotels cannot be built fast enough, leading to shoddy, ill-planned development. Lands are bulldozed with impunity, temples are poorly restored and diesel-fueled vehicles pollute the air in the rush to capitalize on the demand.
For those in Phuket, the Myanmar tourism threat and opportunity remain highly visible, but in many ways the same as our international airport has created a vital hub, a sea hub can easily attain the same desired effect.
I first visited Burma, now Myanmar, in the spring of 1966, when I was 18. It was a few years after the coup d'état; most foreigners had been kicked out of the country, and the government was not welcoming visitors. I fell instantly in love. Even though the ruling military regime was one of the harshest in the world, the people I met were gracious and generous. I wanted to write a book--anything that could get me back there. But I haven't had the occasion to return until this year.
