Tell us about your journey to Khiri Travel

I was born in 1989 and joined Khiri Travel Myanmar in October 2012. Before, I was a purchaser at Blazon supermarket in Yangon. My nickname is Yimaw, and together with my sister I moved from Taunggyi in Shan State to Yangon in 2006. I attended the Yangon National Management College where I earned a Bachelor of Business Management. My job with Khiri is to take care of sales and reservations for agents from the Netherlands and Australia.

Could you please kindly explain about the traditions of your country?

I am an ethnic Pa-O. For us it is tradition to keep the mother tongue of our region alive. Besides Pa-O, I also speak Myanmar and English. One of the festivals in my country that I like a lot is the balloon festival in Taunggyi. This year it takes place 19 to 24 November.

What are unique things about Myanmar?

The outlook of Myanmar people makes it a unique and welcoming experience. I think people can respect our culture, for example by adjusting their dress when visiting religious sites. Another unique part of Myanmar is our festivals. For example the Taunggyi Balloon festival should not be missed.

What do you like to recommend to visitors to Myanmar?

I would like to recommend people to stay at Ngapali Beach because the scenery is pretty. I also like shopping malls and good food. I like to advise guests to taste our food, especially seafood. A good place to taste this is at Min Lan Rakhine Seafood Restaurant in Yangon.

Where’s a good place to buy gifts in Myanmar?

Bogyoke Market in Yangon is a good place to shop for souvenirs. People could buy many things there. A couple of my favorites are the Myanmar traditional make-up called Thanakka and, of course, beautiful laquerware – a unique symbol of my country.

What is your opinion of travelling abroad?

I have traveled to Thailand and Singapore. There is a big difference with Myanmar. Both of these countries are more developed than Myanmar. Singapore is more developed than Thailand. I liked traveling to Thailand because of the shopping and the great choices that you have there.
