Myanmar travel website, Go-Myanmar.com, has been relaunched, with enhanced content and design, the firm said.
“We originally launched in 2013 with the goal of helping visitors get the most out of their trip,” Marcus Allender, founder of Go-Myanmar.com, said in a statement. “We’ve grown – and learnt a great deal – over that period.”
The website claims to provide “all the up-to-date information visitors need for this fast-changing country.”
“Myanmar is exotic and fascinating, but also complex and sometimes baffling; our aim is to simplify the planning process by providing detailed and continually updated destination and travel information, as well as essential local knowledge and a variety of booking options,” Allender said.
“The new Go-Myanmar.com is the result of over two years spent listening to our users and customers and exploring every corner of this amazing country.”
This time, Go-Myanmar.com has been revamped with a Myanmar highlights guide and alternative things to do section – the homepage has a map displaying all the must-see spots around the country, providing info on popular destinations and hidden gems, as well as ideas for offbeat activities, from weird propaganda museums to mountainside vineyards.
The company said it has improved functionality of the website, including new transport maps and homepage transport search. Visitors will be able to enter travelling destination and time and get detailed air, bus, train and boat information, including timetables and booking facilities.
In addition to photos on Flickr and Pinterest, Go-Myanmar now has a YouTube channel with videos from destinations around Myanmar.
Hotels across the budget spectrum now have dedicated pages with interior and exterior photos, facilities listings, map location and booking functionality.
Now there’s also an enlarged information and tips section, with a Burmese audio language guide for key phrases and the latest on mobile and internet in Myanmar.
The website has also started offering a range of Myanmar tours, from active and outward bound, to over land trips from India, China and Thailand, to special interest tours such as photography, wildlife, art and rail travel.
