MYANMAR’S Ministry of Hotels & Tourism has banned foreign tourists from visiting several attractions sites in Rakhine and Shan States until further notice due to instability caused by ethnic clashes.

Banned sites include Sittwe, Mrauk U, Vesali and Mahamuni Pagoda in Rakhine State and Mong La in Shan State, according to a spokesperson from the ministry.

Other off-limits areas include all of Kachin State, as well as Mogok and Nay Pyi Taw – including nearby townships of Pyinmana, Lewe and Tatkon – in the Mandalay Region. “We have restricted access to these areas due to the current situation. I am sure we will allow the tourists (to visit) very soon,” the spokesperson said.
