Hotel booking site Agoda.com, owned by Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group, has offered a collection of hotel specials in some of Myanmar’s most popular destinations to celebrate Kason, one of the country’s holiest and most important ceremonies.
This year the festival falls on May 2.
The Kason Festival celebrates the birth, enlightenment and death of Buddha, which all took place on the same day in the Myanmar calendar more than 2,500 years ago.
Agoda said it has collected a variety of hotels to enable visitors to take part in the festival in some of Myanmar’s popular destinations. These include Yangon, Inle Lake and Bagan, among others.
