UNESCO t-shirts for new members


By Gordon…

The Myanmar bid to join the UNESCO train has been going on for a long and bumpy 25 years.

Last month it finally stopped at our station and UNESCO awarded the historic area of Bagan a gold star for excellence and we gained entry onto the ‘World Heritage ‘List’.

What this means for businesses, shops, tourists, e-bike operators, taxis, tour guides, restaurants (like Sanon), the trains, planes, and buses remains to be seen.

Quite a few hotels located in the middle of the designated historic zone will be impacted. A UNESCO condition dictates that they will need to โ€˜moveโ€™.

Now… In my experience moving a chess piece โ™Ÿ or a dog ๐Ÿ• or even a car ๐Ÿš˜ can be done fairly easily however, the logistics of moving a hotel (including a swimming pool) will certainly take a gigantic effort.

We will all be watching this space to see how things unfold. It’s perhaps a good time to come to Bagan now before the world discovers this hidden gem!
