Pyin Oo Lwin @ May Myo

Pyin Oo Lwin, previously known as May Myo, this beautiful town in the Shan highlands east of Mandalay began life as a military outpost, and was named after Colonel May who was briefly stationed here. Now a popular resort for both Myanmar citizens and foreign tourists, the attractions on offer include some fantastic examples of colonial-era architecture, as well as the scenic vegetable gardens, coffee plantations and strawberry. Enjoy a stroll around the orchid garden in the botanical gardens – this is a place for relaxation and gentle reflection.
