This is Burma's best know colonial hill station. It stands on a plateau, 1000m up in the Shan Hills.

Brick and timber colonial houses which were not destroyed in the war remain as a testament of the British presence.

Botanical gardens and a golf course was carved out of the nearby jungle and still remain a firm favourite for day excursions and picnics.Plants and trees are all neatly presented with name tags. The gardens are neatly kept and the area makes for a pleasant afternoon stroll.

Address: Pyin U Lwin - Maymeo
