Myanmar’s Ministry of Tourism estimates there are 8,000 hotel rooms in Yangon, of which 1,500 to 2,500 are of international standard.
Officially, the country has six five-star, 17 four-star, 83 three-star, 116 two-star and 102 one-star hotels as well as ministry-approved 599 hotels, motels and inns.
The combined capacity is 38,722 rooms, but still some distance off to meet the growing holiday travel demand.
More than 70% of all arrivals are from Asia, with Thailand the leading supplier followed by China.

Myanmar’s hotel and tourism industry is fifth among the top sectors that attract the most foreign investment. Others are energy, oil and gas, manufacturing and mining.
