If you are looking for British Colonial Architecture, Multi Office Road is your place. This shady road is lined with grand colonial administrative buildings, many of them used today by schools or the government. It is like a trip back in time! Don?t miss other impressive examples of colonial mansions not far from this road : Thiri Myaing Hotel (former Candacraig Hotel), Gandamar Myaing Hotel (formerly Croxton Hotel) and Nan Myaing Hotel (formerly Craddock Court). Walking around in the south eastern area, I also found an empty house that still has some of its past grandeur. Although the iron gate was closed, I asked some locals who were taking some tea not far from it if there was someway to visit it. They opened the door for me and let me go in. It was like entering in a phantom house. It was not difficult to imagine how life was in these elegant saloons downstairs and beautiful sunny rooms upstairs.
