Myanmar: Pyin Oo Lwin

‘It will be quite unlike any land you know about.’

Myanmar is one of the most magical countries I’ve ever been: a land of breathtaking beauty and charm with a fascinating history and rich traditions. Compared to bordering countries such as Thailand and Laos, this land is still very untouched and non touristic. Only five years ago it opened it’s borders to tourism. That’s why the locals are very welcoming, gentle and friendly and you don’t get sick people who want to sell you stuff.

Pyin Oo Lwin

From Mandalay we take a two hour shared taxi to Pyin Oo Lwin, a place designed to escape the heat of the capital city. This place used to be the summer capital for the British colonial administration. And indeed, it’s colder and rainier (when we got there), but at the same time most charming with all the old colonial buildings and even carriages you’ll find on the road. The hotel we stay at, Nan Myaning Hotel, lend us bikes to get around this charming getaway.
