Myanmar joins Cuba as ‘hot’ tourist destination

Myanmar joins Cuba as two of the “hottest destinations for 2015,” according to members of the US Tour Operators Association.

The association has named Cuba to the organization’s list of top emerging travel destinations in 2015 along with nations such Myanmar, Croatia and Iceland and Myanmar, according to the Columbus Dispatch on January 4.

A destination may become “hot” because it is in the news and has only recently opened up, as in the case of Myanmar and the tentative opening of Cuba.

After years of isolation, the Myanmar government has opened the door to tourism after the government of President U Thein Sein took power in 2011.

The announcement that the United States might relax sanctions on Cuba, possibly opening up more tourism there in the near future, could well make the island nation a “hot” destination this year, depending on how events unfold, according to the report.

Brazil will potentially provide the best travel value for tourists in 2015 because of the large number of hotel rooms in the country.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
