Taunggyi hotels for Balloon festival

Hi

I want to stay in Taunngyi for the balloon festival, Nov 10th - 18th 2013.

Does anyone know if I can book a hotel directly or through a local agent ?

I can't find details of how to contact any hotels there.

Many thanks.

I stayed at Hotel KBZ FC (formerly Paradise Hotel Taunggyi) -very basic - a few years ago and booked through

You can also contact a travelagent for other hotels.

Visitors last year had great difficulty getting decent accommodation with some having to accept 3rd or 4th choice.

Start contacting a local Agent now.

Hi all

Thanks very much for your replies.

I have been busy trying to sort out my whole trip and did contact the excellent agency who helped me when I was in Myanmar last month (Exotissimo) but they have not replied!

Any more pointers?

Thanks for that helpful info Jenny c.

I also had great info in a PM from Shwezins. Ki546 also put me on to a good hotel booking agent who are searching for me.

Hoefully all this will result in a bed for a few nights.

Good old Tripadvisor and it's kind users.....

I tried to make hotel reservation for my clients in Nov,but I can't.Mid range hotels told me that they will accept reservatin in Oct and then room rate for Nov will let me know few days before festival.What a stupid idea and how crazy hotelier in Taunggyi is.

Thanks a lot NS.

Do you know if there is a particular local problem in Myanmar with emails?

I emailed you directly a while ago and am still waiting to hear from your head office about a possible tour.

I also emailed One Stop who did not replyand had another email returned from a different agent.

Any ideas?
