Iconic Yangon Hotel Caught Ablaze

Dear partners and friends

Last night, at around 03:30 AM, the iconic and historical Kandawgyi Palace Hotel in the former capital of Yangon, Myanmar reported that a fire engulfed large parts of the hotel property, resulting in severe damage at almost every floor and area. According to the Myanmar Fire Service Department, the fire broke out on the fourth floor and spread rapidly through the property, resulting in minor injuries among the guests and staff. The cause of the fire at this stage remains unknown and pending further investigation from local authorities.

At the time of the fire on 19 October 2017, no Asian Trails guests were staying in the hotel. The damage done to this legendary property is extensive and alternative accommodation is now being sourced for arriving customers for the coming period. Due to the severity of the damage, Asian Trails Myanmar will no longer offer this hotel until further notice.

For questions, information or alternative accommodation for your customers, please contact is via or contact your main contact directly at our Asian Trails Myanmar head office.

With kind regards

Asian Trails Myanmar
