Myanmar Tourism Marketing Launches Revamped Social Media Channels at WTM 2017

November 7, 2017 Trade Events No Comments Email Email

Myanmar Tourism Marketing launches during the WTM 2017 in Londonits completely revamped social media channels which they have been working on for many months. The updated national website for consumers ( includes information of destinations, blogs, festival information and much more. A YouTube channel, Twitter account, Instagram and a very active Facebook page are integrated in a social media strategy that focuses on key messages such as Myanmar being a magical place to visit all-year-round; its safety and security; and that Myanmar is not only known for its temples but also for its food, festivals and warm & friendly people.

The introduction of these new channels comes at a time when the country is in the world’s media spotlight. Myanmar Tourism Marketing has used these channels to communicate with the tourism industry and media overseas and with travelers directly. Myanmar Tourism Marketing’s first posts were initially focused on expressing its support for all displaced people in Northern Rakhine State and Bangladesh and indicating that traveling to Myanmar continues to be safe.

The new social media channels have also been used to explain travelers with moral concerns that traveling to Myanmarcontinues to support people all over the country from any race of religion. “Myanmar is a huge, multi-racial country offering colorful festivals, beautiful beaches as well as stunning nature for tourists,” says May Myat Mon Win, Myanmar Tourism Marketing Chairperson. “Missing out on this would be a big loss for yourself as tourists, but also a big loss for those thousands of people working in tourism in Myanmar who have nothing to do with the issue in Northern Rakhine State,” she continues.

Myanmar Tourism Marketing has actively invited travel journalists and Instagrammers to visit the country and share their experiences. English-born travel writer Andrew J. Wood published recently an article mentioning that “visiting Myanmar is the right thing to do” while Instagrammer Hayley Anderson, with more than 120K followers, said, “Love how everywhere we have visited has been so different!”

Myanmar Tourism Marketing continues to invite bloggers, Instagrammers and other social media influencers to share their experiences under @visit.myanmar or by using the hashtag #MyMyanmar. Our Facebook account will be used to share stories and interesting information about tourism in Myanmar and newly produced movies about Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan, Inle Lake and Mrauk U are shown on the YouTube channel The Twitter account is used for last-minute News on Tourism.

While working on all the above Myanmar Tourism Marketing is also working on a revamp of their own website, that will soon be launched and focuses more on the activities of this organization as well as all their members that support the organization and make this launch of social media channels possible.
