Authorities urge the companies which are building Shangrila Residence and Rose Garden Hotel to be operational for the upcoming SEA Games, according to an official from Ministry of Hotel and Tourism.
Yangon and Nay Pyi Taw will be the two major locations that will have to provide the needed hotel rooms for the visitors.
The government is hoping that the Shangrila Residence and Rose Garden Hotel would be ready for the upcoming event, according to Director Kaung Htut from Ministry of Hotel and Tourism.
The two buildings are targeted to finish in late 2013 and will provide accommodation about 500 rooms, according to the ministry.
Shangrila Residence and Rose Garden Hotel are invested by Thailand and Hong Kong respectively. Now the two buildings are in renovation state because there is demand for hotel rooms.
“Now we have little hotel rooms with international standard. Thus we are providing what we can to help the constructing for international standard hotels,” the director said.
Myanmar will provide more than 7,000 hotel rooms for forthcoming SEA Games held in Nay Pyi Taw, Yangon and Mandalay.
