Tourism in Myanmar 2016Myanmar Tourism 2016
Myanmar's tourism will decline by 38% in 2016 as domestic problems intensify.
In spite of its touristic initiative, the Myanmar hotel has been abandoned. Bloomberg Businessweek said Myanmar was set to become a hotspot after the fall of the regime, but due to policy and business problems and tourism sector expertise, the trip to Myanmar has declined further. Myanmar's Ministry of Tourism and Hotel has said that the number of trips to Myanmar has fallen 38% in 2016 to 2.9 million from 4.7 million in 2015.
These new figures follow the years in which the Tourism Department inflated the figures, particularly when it drew up the master plan for Myanmar's tourism sector in 2013. Myanmar's World Bank currently puts the value of its domestic economies at around $63 billion. Not able to achieve this objective, the Department has reduced the number of visitors as it has been criticised by tens of thousand of travellers for the falsification of itineraries.
But this is not a surprise challenge for a less developed nation trying to stimulate its economies through tourism as well.

As the new administration swore to end racial conflicts and open the economic system, Myanmar has stayed one of the worlds impoverished nations with a militarily strong political force and continuing racial outrage.
Inflows of international investments resulted in the first West German grocery stores, a Coca-Cola filling line, mobile phone services and rooms in hotels. According to the Tourism Department, the number of hotels has almost nearly doubled to 1,300 in the five years up to 2015. International business undersigned hotels capital expenditure agreements totalling $2. 7 billion during this period.
Myanmar's present westerly chain includes AccorHotels and Hilton Worldwide. Hilton Asia Pacific President Martin Rinck said to Bloomberg Businessweek that capacity utilization and profits at the two Hilton Myanmar sites have grown at double-digit rate each year since opening in 2014. Group is planning to build three more hostels in the state.
In Myanmar's capitol, Naypyitaw, overdevelopment is particularly pronounced. After the new capital's fast-paced growth, the Union of Myanmar Travel Association reports that the resort has become a haunted place with empty 14-lane motorways, enclosed stores and 5,000 mostly free rooms. The Union of Myanmar Travel Association reports that capacity utilization fell below 40 per cent in the humid winters of this year.
As a reaction to this, the Department of Tourism in September had envisaged restricting new hotels in many important travel locations, such as Yangon. Thailand is a neighboring country and its sector has been successful, indicating that Myanmar still has room for expansion. According to officials, Thailand's tourism sector represents about 11% of the country of $395 billion.
Myanmar's tourism sector represents about 4 per cent, according to the latest survey. Myanmar's disorderly growth could harm the country's environment and reduce its appeal even before tourism can skyrocket, Oliver Esser tells Bloomberg Businessweek. Myanmar's present administration is conscious of the harm the trend is doing, but tourism for Myanmar still has great promise, Sean Turnell, an economics advisor to the administration and lecturer at Macquarie University in Sydney, said in the newspaper.
Myanmar's agencies do not impose legislation that prohibits the extraction of sands. "The former army regime built an 18-hole course and tens of hostels within the Bagan archeological site with tens of tenth cent. Also after an eartquake in 2016, the site is still developing properties.
