South East Asian Games, Myanmar, December

March 27, 2013 – 6:08 pm

The 27th Sea Games will be held in Myanmar (Burma) in 4 locations: Nyapitaw, Yangon, Mandalay and Ngwe Saung Beach between 11 and 22 December, 2013.

All hotels in these cities have received an order from the government to “block rooms”, without mentioning the exact number of rooms. Hotels in Bagan and Inle are not involved, so far.

There will be approximately 7000 Athletes and 2500 officials from South East Asian countries, and the total room capacity is just 8314 in Yangon, 3268 in Mandalay and 2022 in Naypitaw!

If you were hoping to visit Myanmar during this period, think again. Even if rooms are confirmed now, it’s possible that the Government’s will ask the hotels to cancel existing reservations. No alternatives are likely to be offered in such case. We also predict that domestic flights confirmations will be pretty much impossible.
