Yangon Orders Closure of Unlicensed Luxury Spa in Myanmar’s Historic Secretariat

A newly-opened deluxe spa at Yangon’s Secretariat will have to be closed because it has no operating license, according to the Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC).

“We have not officially issued a business license to the spa at the Secretariat. As it is operating without a license, it has to be closed,” U Than, the joint secretary of the YCDC, told the media.

The Yangon regional government has not granted permission either, said Regional Minister Daw Naw Pan Thinzar Myo at a press conference regarding the high-end spa on Thursday evening.
