Singaung Hill welcomes surge in visitor arrivals

The number of people who went on vacation to Singaung Hill, one of the tourist attraction sites in Myanmar, has increased, according to those who have visited there.


Located on Kyaukse-Ywangan road near Mandalay, Singaung Hill was crowded during the Thingyan holidays.


During Thingyan, numbers of visitors, from elders to young people around the country, such as Yangon, Mandalay and Taunggyi, come there by car or motorcycle to take a bath in the Zawgyi River, which is near the mountain and go boating and photo shooting, and their visitors are still until now.


“We visited there together with friends in Thingyan. There were a lot of people who took a bath in the Zawgyi River. It is a beautiful place for photo shooting, so there were a lot of people who came to take photos. We had fun. I’m not sure it was thronged because it was Thingyan. People from Yangon, Mandalay and other regions came to take a vacation there,” said one of the visitors to Singaung Hill.


Singaung Hill is located between Mandalay Re­gion’s Kyaukse township and Shan State’s Ywangan township. Through the Yangon-Mandalay Highway, visitors can go there along Hanmyintmo-Ywan­gan-Taunggyi Road, located beyond Kin village. People from Mandalay can go on a day trip there.


“There are still visitors until now. People come here for relaxation. Singaung Hill is a new place for relaxation. We invite you to come here to relax. Here, people can enjoy nature. It is a beautiful place. The number of visitors has been larger these years,” said a resident Ko Maung Ko.


The water of Zawgyi is clean, and there are riverfront restaurants where people can take a break while playing water in the river.


It is a must-visit place, especially during this hot summer. Officials warned visitors to take a bath in the river in the morning and evening only. — MT/ZS
