This is a great source of pride for our historic company.

“With the incredible growth and development currently being seen in Myanmar, and incredibly bright forecasts for the future, I am extremely confident that BEST WESTERN Green Hill Hotel will be a huge success. Best Western International sees huge potential in Myanmar, and we intended to be here for the long-term, helping to grow the country’s tourism industry,” Mr. de Souza added.
