Community Based Tourism
Community participation is indispensable for sustainable tourism development in Bagan. In this sense, CBT can be a potential tourism product that benefits the local people not only through selling traditional handicrafts, but also giving more experience for tourists to communicate with local people. Through this pilot project, JET conducted 20 cooking tours at West Pwa Saw Village, 20 group tours at Thae Pyin Taw Village, and more than 500 tourists were mobilized. It is expected that CBT will be one of the tools to make a sustainable society through tourism development.
