Yangon: Some 1,670 new hotel rooms will become available in Yangon next year, but officials say it will not be enough to meet an expected the surge in demand, reports said Sunday. Myanmar’s main city and former capital will receive an estimated 600,000 tourists this year, and up to 900,000 in 2013, said Aung Zaw Win, chief of the government’s Directorate of Hotels and Tourism. Yangon currently has 8,319 hotel and guest house rooms, sufficient to handle a maximum of 750,000 tourists a year.
