Abstract

<p>Being a developing country, the balance of development and nature preservation is the essential role in Myanmar. Urban National Parks are important for nature preservation and recreation opportunities for visitors. It is a place where the communities can have experience the nature landscape, different from city landscape. Hlawga National Park is considered as study area which has easy access from Yangon urban area and connects with Bago Yoma. This study aims to examine the characteristics of park from the preferences and attitude of visitors and the nature of forestry. We consider (1) the present nature of park, (2) the preference and attitude of visitors, and (3) problems for sustainability of nature environment. Our findings will generate further discussion on the planning for conservation management of nature environment and biodiversity with the collaborative processes of visitors and tourists.</p>
