07 Jan 2021 - Source: Global New Light of Myanmar - A private business has introduced floating bicycle rental services near the township development committee office at the bank of Ayeyawaday River in Myitkyina Township, Kachin State."The services are aimed for fun and fitness of the youth to stay themselves away from the narcotic drug while schools are closed during the COVID-19 crisis," said U Sai Khum, the owner of floating bike rental shop.
The rental of each bike for 30 minutes is K3,000 per person, and K5,000 for two persons.
The user has to wear a life jacket before riding the bike. When they feel exhausted and need any help, they can blow the whistle on the life jacket. Then, the rental shop will bring tired users by a motorboat.
The floating bike rental services will be available from 8 am to 5 pm, and the business will be expanded to Indawgyi area and Bhamo Township in Mohnyin district.—Sein Win (IPRD) (Translated by Aung Khin)
