Bagan’s tourism zone entrance fees could soon be collected by the Myanmar Tourism Federation, with part of the proceeds funding the development of Myanmar tourism and travel facilities in the Bagan region.
The tourism federation’s joint general secretary, U Khin Aung Htun, told local media that the fees are currently collected by the Ministry of Culture, but the federation is negotiating with the government to take over that responsibility. A deal could be reached as soon as April.
“We will begin collecting fees no later than 1 October. It could be sooner depending upon our discussions with the government,” he added.
