Full day Itinerary
Visiting in Pyin Oo Lwin
The journey starts by picking up at your hotel in Mandalay at 8:00 and drive to PyinOoLwin, once the capital of British Burma. Pyin Oo Lwin is famous for its flowers and vegetable industries, aided by a cold climate that made it popular among the British during colonial rule. Our tour guide will explain about the Pyin Oo Lwin and its historical background. After about one hour’s drive, we will stop at the point, and you may enjoy some tea or traditional food at a local shop before continuing to Pyin Oo Lwin. Along the way, soak up the natural beauty of the surrounding hillside area as you leave the town and travel out into the hill region. You will enjoy the beautiful scenery, friendly people, fantastic experience, and even good food.
Upon arrival in the morning, visit the Governor House, a colonial building where you can have a glimpse the real sense of distinctly British architecture, complete with mock Tudor boarding, set amid deeply forested hills behind, with perfect lawns surrounding it, like a little piece of English Home Counties.
Then we will visit the busy market in the center of Pyin Oo Lwin is the typical Myanmar experience. There have a lot of products from the fields, especially wines, strawberry jam, and coffee. Various kinds of woolen clothes; the top-rated product of Pyin Oo Lwin, are available at the market.
Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant close to the market before taking a traditional horse cart ride (on your own account) which has become synonymous with this colonial hill station. The horse cart is a very different style to the one you experienced in Ava. It will allow you to discover more of the town’s colonial past before ending at the Botanical Gardens in the late afternoon when they are at their most lively.
The 175-hectare gardens are a pleasure to walk around, to take in all the sights and smells. The landscaping is beautiful, and nature enthusiasts can readily spend up to two hours wandering around before heading to the Maha Ant Htoo Kan Thar Pagoda which is one of the most significant pilgrimage destinations for local Buddhist.
After some time in Maha Ant Htoo Kan Thar Pagoda, you are taken back to Mandalay after a beautiful experience in Pyin Oo Lwin.
