Pyin Oo Lwin (Maymyo)


Pyio Oo Lwin is a well-known place in Myanmar for flowers in the Botanical Garden now called as National Kandawgyi Garden, waterfalls, beautiful buildings left over from the old colonial time, churches, a mixture of ethnicities, and a hill station which gives comers an escape, especially from summer heat. Like other places in the country, it became a planned town, named as Maymyo after Colonel May of the 5th Bengal Infantry, and quickly gained fame due to the beauty of the surroundings and very humble heat even in the Burmese humid summer, and was promoted to a summer capital by the British during their rule. It is also where people start their railway ride to famous Gokteik Viaduct and to the northern Shan State where they spend their time by trekking through Palaung tribal villages.
