Mandalay gets 20 new hotels

sedona-hotel-mandalayTwenty hotels providing over 1,400 rooms will be built in Mandalay, the top tourism destination in central Myanmar,  to meet growing demand for hotel rooms, the Mandalay Region’s Hotels and Tourism Department announced on May 7.

“The number of tourist arrivals kept increasing in Mandalay over the years, but we never have any hotel shortages before. At present, about 20 hotels are being built in Mandalay with permission from the authorities,” Myo Myint, head of hotels and tourism department, Mandalay Region, was quoted as saying by news service Eleven Myanmar.

He added that some hotel projects were originally planned as housing projects but were allowed to change in accordance with regulations.

Tour guides say the city might not be able to cope with tourist demand when an influx of tourists arrives. At present, Mandalay has a total of 83 hotels, providing over 3,500 rooms.

In 2013, Mandalay’s tourist arrival rose in January, attracting over 22,000 visitors, but has been declining since February. The city received over 21,000 visitors in February and over 20,000 visitors in March 2013.
