MAY MYAT THU
According to U Ko Ko Latt, secretary of the Myanmar Tourist Guides Association (MTGA), the Myanmar Tourist Guides Association will post travel news and information and photographs on its website.
The MTGN’s website is www.myanmartouristguidesassociation.org and travel news, information, travel documentary photographs, web links of tourism organizations and NGOs abroad and web links to books that should be read by tourist guides are posted on it.
U Ko Ko Latt said: “Presently, we have posted the Guide Directory on the website for the provision of guide service to foreign tourists. We will make the Directory more comprehensive later on”.
It is learnt that a forum on which guides could write would be added shortly to the website. On the forum, guides could provide their personal data, travel information, travelogues and photographs. They could also use the forum to learn what they want to know.
The Myanmar Tourist Guides Association (MTGA) was established in 2011 and presently has a membership of over 3000 tourist guides.
