Burma’s much of the visitors are Thai and Chinese groups

According to an Asian tourism and travel report, the most of the visitors that visit Burma are from the continent of Asia whereas the Thai and the Chinese contain the majority of the nationality groups.

One of its estimation suggests that the percentage of tourists that visit Burma is 12 from China while it is 16 from the Thailand.

Although the tourism is contributing much to the gross domestic production of the countries as in case of the ten member countries of ASEAN, that is the Association OF Southeast Asian Nations, there average tourism contribution is 4.6 while the contribution of tourism to the gross domestic product in the case of Burma is only 0.2 percent in 2011, in spite of the fact that the tourists are growing in number.

Now this scenario of Burma can be changed if the government becomes successful in catching the attention of the tourists to a number of at least 3 million instead of only 1 million in 2012.

But according to the facts and figures presented by the TTR Weekly travel and trade magazine which is Bangkok based, the government of Burma and the infrastructure made has so far been failed to keep growing the number of visitors which is not good for the economic betterment of Burma. Some efforts by focusing the right prospects can help them solve this issue and thus strengthening their economy
