The company’s entry into Myanmar marks alignment in two key areas of its Travel with Purpose strategy – Living Sustainably and Creating Opportunities.
Hilton Worldwide made its debut in Myanmar with the opening of Hilton Nay Pyi Taw, in the country’s capital city. Set amid lush tropical landscaped gardens, the 202-key Hilton Nay Pyi Taw spans more than 100 acres of land and is situated within the developing Dekhina Thiri Township.
