After playing around and having fun throughout the country, the city-dwellers welcome the New Year on the 17th by cleaning the floors of the pagodas and monasteries, washing old and aged peoples' hair, helping to cut them their nails. Some offer free food and drinks for everyone who visits the pagodas, some make other donations. If you can be here with us, you will never forget the true joy.

Myanmar is a truly golden land. It represents not only the sparkling gilt pagodas but also the golden hearted people, on the plains and on the high mountains, smiling and forever hospitable to visitors.

It also represents the ripe golden stalks of paddy in our rural areas waving in the evening breeze where many Myanmar people grow up.

We are also proud of our country and our heritage and forever searching for ways to tell this to the world. That is why we had established our travel agency-to bring friends from all corners of the world to our Golden Land.
