With the increase in the number of tourists visiting Myanmar every year, the country’s hotel business is developing at a rapid rate, said U Kyaw Khaing, the Vice Chairman of the Myanmar Hotelier Association.
“The Myanmar Hotelier Association was formed in 2002. The association is the main supporter of the development of the hotel industry. Myanmar has about 1,312 hotels, including 1,286 private hotels and 26 foreign joint-venture hotels, with over 70,000 rooms. This is one of the developments of the hotel industry in Myanmar,” said U Kyaw Khaing at a press conference on Food and Hotel Myanmar.
There are about 19 hotel zones in Myanmar, including Shan North and Shan South in Shan State, Ngwehsaung and Chaungtha in Pathein zone, Mandalay zone, Bagan zone, Sagaing zone, and Inle zone.
A total of 3.5 million tourists visited Myanmar in 2018. The association aims at improving tourist flow and targets to increase arrivals to 7 million across the country by 2030.
Altogether 21 countries will participate in the Food and Hotel expo, which will be held in Myanmar soon. The expo will help educate entrepreneurs from the hotel industry on food preparation and related technology. —Myint Maung
