Snow white tiger makes appearance at Night Safari
Mai Night Safari has recently introduced the rare stripeless white Bengal
Tiger, the 8 month old male is a result of breeding at the Cincinnati Zoo
between Bhim and Sumitab. Their progeny have been sold to zoos around the
world, occasionally producing a stripeless snow white tiger. The coloration
is caused by a recessive gene, that can produce such animals without
selective breeding, but very rarely. White tigers are not albinos, even the
stripeless tigers have very pale stripes, a true albino would have no
stripes at all. White tigers have enzymes in their fur that that cause the
fur to darken in colder weather. CEO of the Chiang Mai Night Safari, Dr.
Sarawut Srisakun announced the latest addition to the Chiang Mai Night
Segway Gibbon offers fun, new way to see the city
Thomas, left was quite helpful and patient in explaining how to ride the
Segway, so that we arrived at 3 Kings Monument safely and having fun.
By Shana Kongmun
Flight of the Gibbons is now offering a
unique and fun way to see the old city; via Segways. Segways are those
strange looking two wheeled vehicles you can see in the West, with the rider
balanced on top. They look difficult to steer but really, with a bit of
practice, they are quite fun and easy. I am sure everyone who has walked
away from riding one thinks, “Ooh, I’d like one of those!” And except for
the rainy season, these quiet electric vehicles would be great replacements
for polluting cars and motorbikes on Chiang Mai’s clogged roads!
took a little bit of practice to be able to balance on the Segway and take
photos of all the beautiful temples we visited, although some did come out a
bit crooked at the start!
The new tour is called Segway Gibbon
and can be booked out of their Tha Pae Gate office, through an authorized
agent, or online at their website;
www.segwaygibbon.com. The charge is 2999 per person for a two hour trip
that includes an English speaking guide and drinks and a snack. The tour
itself is quite good and its really nice to be able to see the city at a
more leisurely pace, although the guide, Thomas, said the Segway can reach
up to 30km an hour, none of us were quite willing to zip along at those
speeds! The Segways are allowed inside the temples because they are silent,
unlike most vehicles, of course, it is important to dress politely when
visiting temples and you had best wear sensible shoes!
The tour starts out with practice
zipping around the Tha Pae Gate plaza, an area that our guide informed us
used to be moat. Once we got the hang of things, we moved on across the
road, our guide ably pushing the crosswalk button to allow us to cross the
street safely. But, it must be noted that traffic tended to give way as we
rolled down the city streets. Another plus of riding one of these vehicles
We visited the highlights of the old
inner city including Wat Chiang Man, Wat Phra Singh, the 3 Kings Monument,
Wat Pan Tao and Wat Chedi Luang. We had a look (from the outside of course
since no women are allowed) at the Inthakin as well..
The two hours literally zipped by and I
was a bit disappointed to have to return the Segway! This is a great way for
people to see the city up close and learn more about it and one I would
highly recommend for both visitors and residents alike.
Danang welcomes first AirAsia flight
By Reinhard Hohler
According to media news from Viet nam,
AirAsia flight 868 touched down in Danang just after 9 o'clock this morning.
It marked another milestone in the central coast region's surge toward bona
fide international tourism destination status.
In 2009, Singapore-based SilkAir became
the first foreign carrier to operate in Vietnam's third largest city. Now,
Danang is also accessible via Kuala Lumpur, AirAsia's headquarters and
"The fact that this continent's largest
low-fare airline has elected to fly here speaks volumes on the area's appeal
and potential," said Ed Linsley, general manager of the award-winning Nam
Hai resort in nearby Hoi An. "We've got the room supply, and we've got a
brand new airport terminal. Danang and Hoi An are ready to step into the
The two-hour, 40-minute flight to
Danang was made today by a 180-seat Airbus A320. The aircraft began its
return to Kuala Lumpur at 9:45 a.m., as it will every Monday, Wednesday,
Friday and Sunday.
"We fully expect to achieve a load
factor of 80 percent between KL and Danang," said Kathleen Tan, AirAsia's
regional head of commercial. "Combine the presence of international hotel
brands, three UNESCO World Heritage sites and new golf courses designed by
some of the game's biggest names, and we have every reason to believe Danang
is going to be a popular destination for us."
There's also speculation AirAsia will
commence service to Danang from Bangkok, in February. But Tan said: "It's
not confirmed, and we are unable to reveal any further details at this point
Confidence in the central coast has
grown by leaps and bounds since The Nam Hai opened in December 2006 as the
region's first upscale property.
In recent months, Hyatt,
InterContinental and Crowne Plaza have all moved in along the same stretch
of beach that during the Vietnam War served as the U.S. military R&R center.
A pair of legendary golfers put their
stamps on the area, as well. On side-by-side parcels of seaside dunes,
eight-time European Tour Order of Merit winner Colin Montgomerie formed
Montgomerie Links Vietnam and two-time British Open victor Greg Norman
crafted the Dunes Course at Danang Golf Club.
Six-time major champion Nick Faldo and
current world No. 1 Luke Donald each have a course in the works on the
outskirts of Danang. Both are scheduled to open in 2013.
"I can't think of a better golf
destination in Asia," said Craig Douglas, general manager of Danang Golf
Club, which last month won 'Best New Course in Asia-Pacific' at the annual
Asia Pacific Golf Summit. "We've got two great courses here already. When
the other two come online, Danang will be right up there with the best
places to play in the world."
Other area tourist draws include the
three UNESCO World Heritage sites:
• Hoi An, an ancient trading port
that has retained its Old World charm while becoming a culinary hotbed and
tailor-made clothing Mecca;
• My Son, a complex of ruins left
over from the Cham civilization; and
• Hue, the former imperial capital of
Given the array of amenities on the
central coast, Linsley believes it won’t be long before another
international carrier sets up shop at Danang airport.
"It feels like everything's starting to
come together here," said Linsley, who lived and worked in Hawaii and Bali
before joining The Nam Hai in October. "What airline will be next? There are
rumors, but we'll see."

Travel Leaders Symposium Assesses Myanmars Potential in Sustainable Tourism
Local hosts at the co-located
GMS Travel Fair demonstrate the art of horse hair lacquerware crafts to Mr
Sounh Manivong from the Lao National Tourism Administration and PATA CEO
Martin Craigs during the Travel Leaders' Symposium on Sustainable Tourism,
the first-ever international travel trade event to take place in Myanmar.
The landmark hosting by Myanmar of the first-ever Travel
Leaders' Symposium on Sustainable Tourism has been a historical opportunity
for over 100 travel industry representatives from the Greater Mekong
Sub-region (GMS) and around the globe to gather, share their experiences and
learn more about Myanmar.
Termed a great success by participants
and observers, the Travel Leaders' Symposium was held at the Nann Myint
Viewing Tower, Aureum Palace Hotel Bagan, under the joint sponsorship of
Myanmar's Ministry of Hotels and Tourism and the Myanmar Tourism Board, in
conjunction with the Mekong Tourism Coordinating Office.
"We have been very pleased to welcome
all of the local and international travel experts for this event, and we are
delighted to have their knowledge and input as Myanmar returns to the
world's spotlight as one of the newest and most exciting tourist
destinations," said Dr. Khin Shwe, Chairman of the Myanmar Tourism Board.
Myanmar is viewed by many as among the
world's most promising emerging travel destinations, and should remain so
for many years into the future. The meeting featured top speakers from the
public and private sectors, as well as international organizations, who
talked about the pros and cons of the expected growth and addressed various
issues, from visa facilitation to potential destinations, from sustainable
tourism destinations including National Parks to community-based tourism
along with the better development of local handicrafts and cottage
Myanmar is experiencing rapid growth in
arrivals as the country is now opening up politically and economically.
According to the latest figures from Myanmar Directorate for Hotels and
Tourism, Myanmar received from January to October this year 302,236 air
travelers, which is almost as much as for the whole year 2010, when the two
international airports in Yangon and Mandalay welcomed 310,688 foreign
travelers. An additional 350,000 travelers arrived overland to Myanmar from
January to October 2011. According to data from the Pacific Asia Travel
Association (PATA) Myanmar is projected to be among the world's fastest
growing markets, with tourism increasing by 25% for the whole year 2011.
Myanmar has lagged behind much of Asia
in developing its tourism industry, but the potential is enormous. The
symposium noted Myanmar's wealth of untouched cultural and natural assets,
and highlighted the need for the country to learn from mistakes and
successes of other destinations, including the ones in the GMS.
One of Myanmar's greatest assets is its
local population with its sense of genuine hospitality and friendliness.
Some of the speakers urged Myanmar to develop an overall tourism master
plan. Some urged the government to set sound polices and ensure that the
private sector abides by the rules. "We want to expand tourism and bring
more development to the country, and we realize the need for good planning
and clear guidelines, "said H.E. U Htay Aung, Deputy Minister for the
Ministry of Hotels and Tourism.
For many years, the Asian Development
Bank has been supporting sub-regional tourism cooperation in the GMS. In his
presentation, Steven Schipani, ADB Social Sector Specialist, stressed that
although the outlook for GMS tourism remained favourable, there was no doubt
that brisk growth would put tremendous pressure on the sub-region's tourism
assets. "Innovative approaches are needed," he said, "along with better
tourism management to make sure benefits flow to the poor." Among his
suggestions: more community-based tourism and development of pro-poor supply
chains; strategies for preventing and managing negative social impacts of
tourism; mainstreaming environmental sustainability in the tourism sector;
improving the protection of precious heritage assets; and policy and
regulatory reform aimed at accelerating sustainable tourism investment.
PATA CEO Martin Craigs added: "The
private industry is the one that will look at developing business. However
they will not regulate themselves. It is up to the government to create the
right balance for the benefit of all, and the job of business enterprises to
voice their opinion to governments. PATA will then help facilitating the
dialogue between the various players of our industry." During the opening
ceremonies of the Symposium Mr. Craigs was joined on stage by H.E. U Htay
Aung, Deputy Minister for the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism, to announce
the official launch of PATA's Myanmar Chapter.
The Travel Leaders' Symposium on
Sustainable Tourism concluded that to help achieve good sustainable
development of any destination, attention must be paid to the preservation
of landscapes, cultural protection and empowerment of communities.
Additionally, more attention should be paid to involve Myanmar's younger
generations in the future of tourism.
"We not only want to grow tourism in
Myanmar, we want to expand across all sectors, and showcase our culture and
rich heritage, but not at a pace that will harm the environment or exceed
our capacity to deliver a unique and satisfying tourism experience for all
visitors," said tourism consultant Daw Kyi Kyi Aye.
