Pin Oo Lwin

Pin Oo Lwin Candacraig Hotel Old Colonial Style.


The Candacraig hotel in Pin Oo Lwin was built by the British colonialist and is still operating the pictorial representation of the place is better than any description by words. The place was built to function as the terminal for the train from Mandalay to let the English escape the extreme summer heat in Central Myanmar.

The town looks like a copy of an English village in the early 19.th century. it includes a interesting botanical garden and the environment is real pretty including the houses which are the only buildings in this part of the world with chimneys a great nostalgic environment. The local people are mainly descendant of Indian / Pakistani soldiers so plenty of people from the Indian subcontinent are around at Pin Oo Lwin.
