Hotel Industry booms with tourism year approaching
With the National Tourism Year 2011 at the door steps, the hospitality industry in the country is making some significant changes.
It is the first time in almost a decade that the country is seeing such a shake-up. In 1998 the government had called Visit Nepal Year.
Existing four-star properties are in the process of upgrading themselves, while three new four-star hotels are expected to come up soon.
Some five-star hotels are planning on adding on more keys, while still others are improving on existing facilities.
The event has also attracted foreign investment into Nepal’s hotel industry.
The government is celebrating the dream plan NTY 2011 with its focus on welcoming at least one million tourists in the year.
