Myanmar approves new hotel zone at Inle Lake
Rahul Khanna, Yangon, May 22, 2012

THE MYANMAR President’s Office has approved an application by the Ministry of Hotels & Tourism to develop a new 250-hectare hotel zone at Inle Lake.


Set on a hill to the east of the lake, the site will be divided to accommodate 16 hotels, for which development plans are already underway.


Moe Zaw Htut, deputy head of office for the Minister for Hotels & Tourism, said the new hotel zone would boost room inventory and cater to growing tourism demand at Inle Lake.


The Ministry of Hotels & Tourism had originally applied for 810 hectares, but the Union Government slashed this by more than two-thirds following consultations with the Ministry of Environmental Conservation & Forestry and the Shan State government.
