New Destinations Ayeyarwady

Community Based Tourism on the New Destinations Ayeyarwady River – Hsithe and Myitkangyi

The fishermen and women of two traditional fishing villages (Myit Kan Gyi and Hsithe) invite you to come and visit them. The new destinations on the Ayeyarwady will be ready and in operation from November 2016. The development  of the destinations is part of a community-conservation project funded by the UK’s Darwin Initiative. It is a partnership between the Myanmar non-profit organisation ‘Grow Back for Posterity‘ and the UK’s Harrison Institute. The project has also received valuable support from the University of Mandalay.

Exciting, interesting and unusual activities, including:

1: boat trips with fishermen/fisherwomen (great for photography)

2: learning to cast a fishing net (fun, interactive, and suitable for men and women)

3: village tours (a great way to see the real Myanmar)

4: a visitor centre (learn about the culture and wildlife of the river)

5: a shop (buy village handicrafts from the people that make them).
