Jovago linking with hotels in border areas

Jovago is attempting to expand its network in the border areas of Myanmar because the number of tourists entering Myanmar through border checkpoints has risen dramatically after eVisa allowed foreigners to enter Myanmar through three checkpoints: Tachilek, Myawady and Kawthaung starting from 1st September.

The visitors can easily book a hotel online while travelling. Jovago is gearing up to link with more hotels in border areas, said Abdesslam Benzitouni, head of Public Relations from Jovago.

Currently, Jovago has established a partnership with about 20 hotels in Tachilek and Keng Tung, about 40 hotels in Kawthaung, Myeik and Dawei and 40 hotels in Hpa-an and Mawlamyine, it is learnt.

In the first half of 2016, 70 per cent of foreign visitors entered Myanmar through border areas.

The increasing number of visitors in border areas will enhance the hotel business, the travel and tourism business and the transportation business, said U Htin Aung Naing, the director of Taunggyi hotel and tourism ministry.

Tourists who enter via Tachilek usually visit Taunggyi, Inle, Bagan, Mandalay, Kyaikhteeyoe and Yangon. Tourists who enter through Myawady border visit Hpa-an, Toungoo, Mandalay, Pyin Oo Lwin, Inle and Taunggyi and exit through Keng Tung and Tachilek.

Some visitors entering Myanmar through Myawady visit Myawady, Hpa-an, Thaton, Kyaikhteeyoe, Toungoo and Tamu and then exit through Tamu to India.
