Authorities to develop new hotel zone in Ngapali
Rakhine state government is planning to implement a new hotel zone near Myanmar’s famous Ngapali Beach in Thandwe township.
Local newspaper The Myanmar Times reported that the new hotel zone is being planned to encourage long-term sustainable tourism as some hotels were built at the beach without following the regulations.
The government has not decided on the location of the new zone but will conduct assessment in the area to continue the process.
There are about 26 hotels at Ngapali Beach and they offer about 890 rooms. 18 hotels which have about 600 rooms are under construction.
Total of 70,000 foreign and local visitors came to the beach in 2016.
