Less than two hour drive up in the mountains to the east of Mandalay is Maymyo (Pyin Oo Lwin). A former hill station, used by the British in the 1800’s to escape the oppressive heat of Mandalay during the hottest times of the year. Visit the beautiful Kandawgyi Gardens. Another must is a visit to Maymyo’s vibrant markets, where you can have fun bargaining with the local vendors, for anything from exotic fruit and vegetables to freshly caught fish. During your stay in Maymyo, you will be exilerated by the stuning Dat Taw Gyaint Water Falls in Anisakhan, near Pyin Oo Lwin are an amazing sight.
