The recently-opened Best Western Thousand Island Hotel is located 28 kilometres from Heho Airport that provides several domestic flight connections to cities such as Yangon and Mandalay.
The hotel will also provide 48 rooms on the busy riverfront of Nyuang Shwe.
The city is located north of Inle Lake, which is known as a main trade and transportation gateway to Inle.
Recognised as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Inle Lake is also one of Myanmar’s most iconic visitor attractions as it is famous for the Intha fisherman and floating gardens.
The new hotel is Best Western’s third property in Myanmar alongside two other properties in Yangon: Best Western Green Hill Hotel and Best Western Chinatown Hotel.
