The first ever floating hotel will open its doors in Botahtaung harbour near Yangon by the end of this year, according to the Myanmar Ports Authority.

Myanmar company, Hla Hla Pa Pa won the approval to invest in the floating hotel project buying a 2,000 tonne engine-less vessel from Finland to build the floating hotel. After the vessel arrived here on August 18, Myanmar Shipyards carried out renovation tasks to provide 104 double rooms, two dining rooms and bars.

Myanmar has involved foreign and local investors to build floating hotels by the Botahtaung jetty.

The Yangon Port Development has already expanded as a Botahtaung port area. The land area of the port was extended towards the Yangon River in July last year. A local company, Pearl Myay, worked on the port expansion project.
