Rangoon River cruises expand tourist service

The state-owned corporation Inland Water Transport (IWT) is to introduce three more cruise boats on the Rangoon River in addition to the six currently in operation. The IWT has revealed a plan to transform three boats currently under use for different purposes into cruise boats to promote tourism on the river. Three-hour Rangoon river cruises are available at the city’s Wadan and Botahtaung jetties for US$30 per passenger.
