Best Western debuts in Myanmar.

BEST Western International (BWI) has announced the opening of its first hotel in Myanmar, the Best Western Green Hill Hotel, Yangon. The contemporary, 189-room midscale hotel is located in the heart of Myanmar's largest city, with views of the stunning Shwedagon Pagoda. Glenn de Souza, BWI's vice president of International Operations for Asia and the Middle East, says: "Our arrival in Myanmar makes Best Western the first US-based hotel company to establish a presence in this exciting country. Best Western International sees huge potential in Myanmar, and we intend to be here for the long-term, helping to grow the country's tourism industry," de Souza adds.

The new hotel offers a range of modern amenities. It also features a restaurant serving Asian and international cuisine, while the corporate and events markets are well catered for, with three meeting rooms offering more than 200 sq m of function space.

The opening of the Best Western Green Hill Hotel, Yangon, marks only the start of BWI's expansion plans in Myanmar. Next year the company will launch its first hotel in the country's capital, Nay Pyi Taw. Copyright 2008
