As I am a local of Myitkyina, I frequently visit Myitsone during public holidays. I used to bring my guests
Ma Ohn Mar Myint (Monywa)
This is my first visit to Myitsone. The natural sceneries have caused relaxation although we got tired of a long journey by car. This environment is totally different from our central zone of the country. There are also some other places worth visiting in this area.

A professional photographer needs to have good public relations with visitors. We also have to give information about some interesting places
Daw Aye Myint (Yangon)
This is my first visit to Myitsone. This environment has refreshed me as we got stressful in city life. I come here with my family members. As I become older, I have preferred natural places. I will try to visit here again.
Shun Lei Phyo (Student, Mandalay)
My dream has come true to visit Myitsone. I just passed the matriculation exam this year. I come here with my parents and friends. I had the photos taken in the dress of ethnic traditional costumes. The pleasant environment has refreshed me although I was so tired of taking a long journey by car. I will come here again with my friends.
Daw Jar Nu (Mali Inmai Kachin Traditional Restaurant)
We sell Kachin foods at the resting camp, and the business was expanded with hiring Kachin traditional costumes. We also sell local souvenirs. The hiring rate for each dress is K2,000. Demand in this Thadingyut Festival is higher along with the increasing number of visitors. — Kay Kay (Translated by Aung Khin)
