The botanical gardens nearby are home to thousands of rare trees and flowers, including a prize orchid collection, a walk-in aviary and acres of open parkland full of strutting peacocks. Meanwhile, Pyin Oo Lwin’s high altitude ensures pleasantly cool weather and fresh mountain air, making it a delight to explore. Discover its historic monuments, find out about its British colonial past, and visit markets and flower gardens – see it all leisurely on a carriage ride, and if that gives you a taste for more, venture further afield by trekking or biking, to see lush green landscapes and gushing waterfalls. Back at the hotel, there’s a pool, a fitness centre and pretty gardens to relax in.
