Pyin Oo Lwin is a cool alpine scenic hill town, formerly known as Maymyo, located in Mandalay Division in Myanmar. Just over an hour drive from Manadalay, Pyin Oo Lwin offers visitors cool days and nights, peaceful rural roads and tracks for hikers and cyclists, where on can meet up natives bringing in their produce from the fruit and flower producing country side. Old times can be relived with coach rides and many historical and beautiful places are within easy reach.
The pleasant cool weather is conductive to flowering plants growing; thus Maymyo is home to the Botanical Garden, noted for its beauty and earning Pyin Oo Lwin, the nickname of “Town of flowers”. Be waterfall and Pate Chin Myoung Caves are popular places to visit and explore. In tropical Myanmar, a visit to Pyin Oo Lwin gives a much-needed respite from the heat and humidity common to tropical areas.
