Ngapali Beach Front FREE ZONE – Arrakan State Myanmar May 2021


1995 I arrived in Myanmar and next to be in the management team to open the very first International standard First Class Hotel in Myanmar,- I was in charge for all Culinary trainings, menus and curriculum of Myanmar Hospitality Training Center in Yangon. All much needed for the highly anticipated 1996 “ Visit Myanmar Year “ by the government.


Much efforts by than Tourism Minister General Kyaw Ba,- with a highlight to have the prestigious Singapore SHATEC Hospitality professors conduction the 11 module – over 1 year “ Hospitality Management Diplomas “. Continue with Chef Andreas Vogt and Renato, U Tin and one of the best knowledgeable Hospitality Expert U Than Lwin – Mr Robin, U Tin and Myanmar Chefs to start the Myanmar Chefs Association blessed by Tourism Minister General Saw Lwin and General Aye Myint Kyu. Our efforts were honored with the full membership as MCA in the World Chefs Association,- for many years the only Hospitality Association as such in Myanmar on a global stage since 1998 at Kyoto World Chefs Congress. 2002 Pyay Pyay Culinary school was established with high class lectures – culinary masters from Germany through SES “ Senior Expert Service “,… the here MCA Certificates were the only that time recognized as needed document for a seaman passport ( next to the State Hotel School ). 


First Ever Olympic Gold for Myanmar by Chefs in 2016

Many International Awards and Medals – Winner trophies were possible through constant training of your Chefs in & for Myanmar`s Hospitality Industry with the top highlight of the 2016 Culinary Olympics in Germany and the Myanmar Chefs team with Zin Maw Win, Moe Moe Khaing, Shwe Moe Thar, Roshan and Pastry Chef winning the first ever Gold Awards at a Global Olympic Competition. 


20 years Hospitality Training in Ngapali as early as 2001 

German Senior Expert Service at best Vocational Quality 

Initiated by “ The Vision “ of Dr Christian & Ilse Runge, “ Myanmar Partners “ in 2001 started at the today well known Rakhine Community Medical Care center – “ Solar Workshop “. Foreign languages as German, French, English, Spanish,- Computer trainings, Carpenter & Hotel Engineering,– Solar Cooking as well Housekeeping and Tailor all at 1 year training courses. Away from the in Myanmar ONLY 2 or 3 month short courses where one just touch – so sure not learn the jobs – profession. Today Dr Christian is 92 years old and still manages from Germany the Hospitality Institute at “ Mafel`s Ground 2 “ vocational training center at the doors of Mandalay – after setting up Hospitality, Computer, Language – Solar education at the with over 7000 students “ Paung Daw Oo – Monastic School “ of and much with U Na Ya Ka Seyadaw over the past 18 years. Over the past 20 years many young Rakhine – Ngapali, Mandalay – nation wide people learnt a profession – to be proud and able to make a living independent – support parents and build up own families being economical save through a good “ German Way of Dual Vocational Training “ system ( school as well on the Job ).  In Ngapali Beach one can easy find the Hotel & Restaurant staff – today in the mid 30ties at Bayview, Amazing, Hilton, Sandoway, Art of Sand, Laguna ECO Lodge, Aureum, Thande, Amata Hotels which all attended these 2001 “ First Vocational Training s in Rakhine State s – Hospitality Industry “ – near all of they are in top position, leader and guiding the new generation – earning well and rose their all families status and living conditions to a well good level,—- Unique in Arrakan today still as State or Union Vocational Training Centers were barely a concern for successive Governments from 1995 to 2015 in Myanmar as well Rakhine. 


The 2021 Union Tourism Minister urgent requested Tourism Training in 2013 

So only Short Course,- not Quality Education – Let`s call it Show Course 

Late U Than Lwin – Mr Robin made it all possible,

Thanks Teachers Daw Sie Sie, U Kyaw Myo Aung and U Tun Myint Oo.

265 Hospitality Students Trained at Laguna ECO Lodge Ngapali

In early May 2013 the also present time Union Tourism Minister asked me urgent if we can arrange “ Short Training Courses “ ( actually I hate such as it betray the young Myanmar with a wrong idea of Quality Education,- Sorry I am German trained and we need 3 years for a Certificate – in Myanmar still 2 month s ONLY at the Tourism school – NOT my Thing ) ,- for this monsoon season at Laguna ECO Lodge – Ngapali a series of all chapter of Hospitality and Management trainings – Education.  

,…. It was an easy for as in the Monsoon season the all rooms were empty,– great friends from the old Myanmar Hospitality Training Center ( from UN ILO 1982 ) teacher s were our all best Hospitality Industry friends and the team for all departments was quick arranged. 

Yangon Principle U Win Kyi arranged all professional text books to be printed and sent to Ngapali Beach – Laguna ECO Lodge. The teachers and all schedules were quick arranged by U Than Lwin – Mr Robin the so called “ Myanmar Professor for all Hospitality Departments “,. A walking dictionary and a “ living WIKIPEDIA on Tourism Industry “ – his all live at the Ministry of Hotels & Tourism, a first Manager at The Strand Hotel and many more. The man which any General cum Minister would call if there were VIP treatments, foreign dignitaries – state functions – U Than Lwin s “ Old School – Hands on, NOT Talk ONLY “ was always a grant for success.  All 265 students – all young Arrakan passed the exams by the Teachers of Myanmars Hospitality Training Center of Ministry of Hotels Tourism MOHT Yangon. 


2014 October Hospitality Training Ngapali “ BY FORCE “,… 

2014 all Hotels were ordered “ By Force “ that staff must attend a training in mid October otherwise the operating license could be revoked. Nothing against training the best one can do for good development – so after 5 month s every one was free to do so at that time every one was busy to reopen, renovate make the hard ware the hotel, restaurant, garden ready for the guests to come. It was one of the show off issues as many might know to well.


Myanmar Hospitality Changed much from 2014 to 2021,- 

2021 Training is prohibited, can result in Legal Court cases,…… ?

When 2021 Union Tourism Minister urgent requested Tourism Training in 2013

,…. As we all are here and work 26 years in and for all Myanmar, specially hospitality & tourism training,- as above different schools =, in charge for the Hotel Training Center for Chefs 1995 to 1997 by MOHT in Yangon. Pyae Pyae Culinary Training Center 2002 with all German Expert – Master Chefs – Trainer and granted “ Seaman Passport Certification “ when passed as it had a highest international standard. General Tourism Minister Saw Lwin,- General Ayer Myint Kyu supported. The short courses the in 2013 tourism Minister to be and today again is – requested most urgent Tourism – Hospitality Training “ Mr Oliver do it short course for Ngapali Tourism Destination… “ the than at late September announced Tourism Minister in 2013 told us in May 2013 at a Ngapali Beach Development meeting “ Tourism Master Plan. Community Based and Supportive Tourism……….

In 2021 May all was different,– strict order by the highest authorities in writing it was said ( I never got one ) ordered that any training would not be permitted and is against present laws and orders. At a second attempt a court case was threatened. In October 2021 the same again – same papers ( I never got or saw one ) . “ NO Training allowed at all,… ???


Yes it looked a bit contraire to the past 26 years Myanmar Tourism & Hospitality Industry, Ministers as Army Generals, Prime Ministers and Presidents to State Counselor,—- Training, Education, Vocational Training, Sustainable Tourism Development were 26 years the highest one could do and very much welcomed, promoted and supported by the MOHT Generals from General Kyaw Ba, Saw Lwin, Aye Myint Kyu, Soe Naing and even the present Union Minister. The Aid and main goal was always clear:” Training – Training – Training – Training”.


NO Training just Hire Young People for Jobs – The Solution

,…. When most Hotels & Restaurants laid off near all or all of their young Ngapali Tourism staff during 12 month s COVID19 and then again much more after the 1.2.2021 events as the economic crisis would not result into profits from Tourism to pay staff salaries and other costs. Let alone that at same time the electricity supply got very unstable with many and in May weeks long cut later again,— today December 2021 daily many hours without electricity,– Hotels which stay open must run generators and spend hundreds and thousands of $ US for electricity alone. Great of course for the one which sells the Diesel all in Thandwe – Ngapali “ High Time Business & Profits “ one can guess.

It was the Idea despite all the miserable conditions to find ways how young Arrakan people as well young people from all over Myanmar could be able to learn a profession, – to be proud about, create the first steps into an independent adult live,- create a new or support the old own family with a learnt profession. 
the second thought was also to get young people of the Myanmar roads which are in 2021 some of the most dangerous health wise – globally and daily until today. 

We Hire,- We Not Fire – We Internship Work for Tourism Myanmar

UK City & Guild, World Chefs & TYPSY provided online Certification

,… We made up a budget and hired many young Myanmar people based on each of them with an Internship Work Contract – 1 $ US a month salary. Our Department Heads managed the daily works – everyone had to be hand s on and work for each other in his / her respective work field as Front Office, Housekeeping, Kitchen, Service , Management. Extended to Ngapali Beach – Arrakan Environmental protective daily work. 

,… The work was divided into live work at the departments and individual online learning one by one internship staff alone with his mobile phone and International Standard Hospitality Certifications. 

Individual Online International Certifications in Hospitality

Next to the daily work schedule all over the Hotel in their departments,– each Internship staff was connected for his individual work with his private mobile device to:

All interns passed and achieved the UK City & Guild & World Chefs Academy “ Pro Commis “ Certificate which was a great success. Mobile phones, laptops and tablets were arranged for staff without. Mobile data was bought and provided by partner & donor funding to ensure everyone got the same chances to learn online and achieve “ International Quality Education & Vocational Online Training “ in Myanmar in 2021 – 22. When the authorities announced that Training is illegal and can result in a court case and the respective negative effects. Here a Great Thank YOU to President Thein Sein for his arrangements to make ONLINE – Global Quality training and education for all individuals possible since 2013 – 14 in Myanmar. Without President Thein Seins vision it all would not be possible.

In Yangon “ Training “ is allowed !!!???

2 Internship Staff won Scholarships at SSB Educational Center Yangon

All Internship Staff of Laguna ECO Lodge Hotel, Ngapali Beach @ Arrakan State Myanmar received well recommendations from their Department heads and many enjoy these days a Job in Ngapali s Tourism Industry. Some went for higher ground and earned Scholarships for further Tourism – Hospitality Education & Training. Mainly as in Yangon Training & Education was always and is still very much allowed. A strong difference to Ngapali – Thandwe Tourism region which sure the one or the other would try to explain if one would like to know why in Ngapali –  Arrakan Tourism Industry training is prohibited in 2021.
