Best Western has identified Vietnam as one of its key areas of focus, due to its incredible natural beauty, increasing popularity as a destination, tourism-friendly government policies, and levels of rising domestic affluence. In addition to Saint Simeon Resort, BW Premier Collection, the company also has firm plans to launch an upscale resort on the idyllic southern island of Phu Quoc.
In 2017, Vietnam welcomed a record 12.92 million international visitors, up almost 30 percent compared to the previous year.
