Colonial History Tour of Pyin Oo Lwin

Ascend from the heat of the Mandalay plains to this hill station from yesteryear, where grand mansions have retained their elegance, even though the town has been renamed from Maymyo to as Pyin Oo Lwin. 

This is a place to relax and uncover another side to Myanmar’s history, one of sweeping botanical gardens and clock towers from Rupyard Kipling’s fiction. 

Go slow. Relax. Find a sprawling mansion with the atmosphere of colonial times. Experience afternoon tea and gracious wooden balconies. 

You’ll explore on a horse-drawn carriage and meet colorful locals, who are remarkably open in telling their story of Myanmar’s recent history.
