As tourism in Myanmar is booming, the demand for a wider range of accommodation options has also spiked accordingly.
Unfortunately, it does seem that the Southeast Asian country is currently unable to keep up with the rising demand. Thus, the prices of hostels, hotels, and guesthouses have been steadily increasing year by year.
Book Your Accommodation(s) In Advance
Of course, there are budget-friendly options in the bigger cities as compared to a few years back. But it remains to be seen how much of an impact this current situation will have on its tourism industry.
Be that as it may, with the current trend of Myanmar’s short supply of accommodations and increasingly pricey hotels, it is definitely suggested that you book a hotel room in advance — especially during peak seasons to secure your accommodation.
And if your point of origin is a country that requires a visa, another reason to book in advance is that the application process does require visitors to fill out a hotel or hostel address when applying.
