Pyin Oo Lwin has hotels from top class down.
Comfortable country inns with good food and service, medium range hotels,
and budget hotels - all give an old-fashioned individual attention and
assistance to visitors.
Overall, price is a good
guide to quality and comfort. Despite
inflation prices have remained quite stable. Best
bargains are about $15 in the lower bracket and $40-75 in
the upper. Budget
travellers should check out Royal
Flower Guest House and Dahlia
Motel, too. (Check out Agoda.com and Expedia.com etc). See Where
In the off-season (after
mid-April to end September) bookings aren't needed. It's worth calling in
advance for rooms in the better hotels since they do fill up occasionally
- on the weekends near
Full Moon days, for example.
Lots of places to eat,
ranging from Feel and Woodland (European,
Japanese, Thai and Myanmar menus, international quality and ambience) to
Chinese restaurants and roadside Food Markets
which are set up outside the Main market and the Shan market from about
4pm onwards. Quality and hygiene varies, and MSG is on the wane.
An excellent and busy farm eatery is at December, a mile further towards
Lashio from the Reluctant Buddha Pagoda.
