Maymo Myanmar

Myanmar Maymo

It is hard not to dream of coolness before the first rains of the monsoon these days of suffocating heat in Untermyanmar. Myanmars Maymo - A small piece of the old land Embedded in the hill above Mandalay lies the old Britains Hill Station of Pyin Oo Lwin. Maymo was the name given to the town by the Brits, who every past sommer relocated their capitol there to avoid the scorching and dusty Yangon. Nowadays Pyin Oo Lwin preserves much of his Colonian heritage from the Strawberries and National Kandawgyi Botanic Gardens, which look as if they have been directly transferred from England to the ranks of 19th and 20th centuries England cabtages and houses and the large number of India and Nepali homes that were purchased here as part of the Colonian administration.

Probably the best accommodation in Maymo - review of Kandawgyi Hill Resort, Pyin Oo Lwin (Maymyo), Myanmar

As we planned our journey to Pyin Oo Lwin, we booked this accommodation on the basis of our readings (LP and another travelling magazine). It is a historic building, once the headquarters of the UK secret service, and it is ideally situated next to the botanic gardens (5 minutes on foot, or 10 minutes if you are walking slowly).

It is almost the best part of the city, next to the gardens and opposite the sea, although a little away from the city centre. On the outside, the old farmhouse was modest. The guesthouses were further behind the central building. Allegedly only the front building was originally (now used as a welcome and restaurant).

The bath room was a little old and probably just like a guest house. Being a little away from the city centre, as already noted, the catering facilities were very restricted. Fortunately, the lodge canteen was not too poor and the proportion was high. As an alternative it would be a drive of 6 to 8 US dollars to the city or to the few local shops and bars.

Remain here for the situation or your past of colonialism, but granted, it seemed like recently established facilities elsewhere in the city that seemed more upbeat. I' ll be recommending this place, but there are also better places in the city if you have a high quality and don't worry about the past or the situation (above all you have to rent a carriage anyway, unless you just want to see the botanic garden).

P.S.: The LP says that the botanic gardens are open to visitors to the hotels; this is no longer the case.
