The Strand was one of the three great hotels of British colonial Asia. It was where Orwell, Prince Edward and other notable travelers would stay during their travels.
After a long period of decline it underwent a huge renovation and has reopened to acclaim. Modern appointments have been added yet the hotel continues to feel like a masterpiece from 1901.
Spend the night and stay for afternoon tea, the perfect way to escape Yangon’s mid-afternoon heat and recreate a bygone era.
