A Chinese tourist was forced to buy hotel supplies to survive as his Myanmar hotel fell prey to a $30 million flood.
The hotel in Yangon, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) southeast of Mandalay, had been operating without power since July and was expected to be shut down on Tuesday, but it did not go down.
The cost of supplies was about $40 million, said Nung Chin-pyo, owner of Hotel Yangon.
He was trying to save money to open a new hotel, he said.
The tourist had paid about $2,200 for supplies and other expenses, he told Reuters.
The flood damaged a hotel pool and forced people to use a nearby lake, which is protected by a river, to get water.
Some hotels are still functioning, he added.
