Elite Notes from the President
New Partner in The Union of Myanmar 

Dear Members,
Welcome to the latest issue of our monthly newsletter. Thank you very much to those members who had kindly given me your comments and feedback. I truly welcome all of them.

In this month’s issue I have the pleasure of telling you about our newest business partner in our neighboring country and about the fantastic launch event we had there. As we move forward, I will be writing more about our signing up of GSSA’s as I believe it is important to keep you abreast of the developments in the business side of things. I will also present some of our partners who have agreed to give you, our members, special benefits when visiting or using their services. That would be towards the end of the newsletter.

In our earlier newsletter I wrote about our first General Sales and Services Agent (GSSA) in Cambodia. We are still forging ahead and partnering with very capable companies in the region to grow our membership base with the aim of offering the benefits of membership. The most important criteria in selecting a partner is being an established company in their own country and being certain that they can service members in their territory. And this past June we have successfully signed a contract and announced our newest and first GSSA in Myanmar, Nice Fare Travel, managed by Mr. Thandar Lay Naing, the managing director. Nice Fare Travel Co., Ltd is a tour and travel company providing services both domestic and internationally. They have been registered and certified with the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism as well as being a member of the Union of Myanmar Travel Association.

For more information and inquiries please contact : 
Ms.Zarni at address No.8, Aung San Stadium, Mingalar Taung Nyunt Tsp., Yangon. Call her by phone at 95-1- 255699 , 393088, 374922, 374933,245378 or by e-mail

And we will continue to announce to you, our members, about our new partnerships as we finalize contracts with GSSA in different countries.





Pruet Boobphakam

Thailand Privilege Card Co., Ltd.


The Thailand Elite Hello Myanmar was held at Sedona Hotel, Yangon and the invitation list consisted of high profile business men and local celebrities. The event was also held to launch the Thailand Elite Card officially and was supported by Thai Airways, MJET, Siam Paragon and Pathumwan Princess. All attendees had a great time and enjoyed the event.


Attractions in Yangon

Yangon, former capital of Myanmar, is still the business and cultural center of the country inspite of having moved the seat of the government to Naypidaw in 2006. 
Yangon’s most famous landmark The elegant Shwedagon Pagoda is an incredible 99 meter high gold plated pagoda with a diamond studded spire set on top of a small hill in downtown Yangon. It dominates the skyline and is visible from much of the city. The very impressive pagoda, also known as the Golden Pagoda, is Burma’s most important Buddhist pilgrimage site. The main stupa enshrines sacred relics of the Gautama Buddha as well as the three previous Buddhas. A great number of intricately decorated pavilions with multi tiered roofs called Pyatthat and several Tazaungs, a Burmese temple pavilion enshrining Buddha images are dotted around the complex.

The Thailand Elite team had the great opportunity to visit this beautiful landmark and had the pleasure of the management team of Nice Fare Travel as the honorary guide. It was an awe inspiring trip to have been witness to the intricate and detailed craftsmanship as well as the culture of Myanmar. If you find yourself in the city of Yangon, do not miss any opportunity to visit this landmark.

Booking Accommodation online by yourself

I may have mentioned before that I do love to travel. And traveling all over Thailand is one of my favorite pastimes. I’ve always had difficulties when it came to choosing which hotel to stay at. Because, and you have to agree with me on this, that Thailand is full of many outstanding hotels everywhere you go. Choosing from many excellent properties is always a hard thing to do. Which makes our new service even more delightful. This month I am happy to let you know that we have compiled a list of hotels all over Thailand, and have made them available for all our members to book and great rates. Whether you’re going up north to Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai or down south to Phuket and Krabi. Or perhaps you want to get off the beaten track and head over to Rayong well known for it beautiful beaches or go on to the island paradise of Krabi. There are many hotels and resorts that you can choose from. Just go to our accommodation landing page at
