Myanmar is increasingly a tourism destination of choice for adventure and family travel alike. The Ministry of Hotels and Tourism plays a key role in increasing the number of people travelling to Myanmar and ensuring that they know about tourism products that are available.
The Ministry of Hotel and Tourism has provided travel information counters throughout Myanmar. However, one of the biggest challenges that the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism face is building staff skills on customer service, English language skills, and building an understanding of the role of the tourism information desk in the various states and regions of Myanmar.
As a Tourism Information Advisor, you will work to support local staff and the larger Ministry of Hotels and Tourism in Tanintharyi Region to ensure that the tourism information counter is well organized, that the staff are ready to serve tourists as needed, and that tourists can easily find the information they need to make decisions about their trip to Dawei and beyond. Your role will ensure that tourists can gather information about locally owned businesses and can support local communities in a sustainable and inclusive way.
