Mawlamyaing Strand , Mawlamyine
Myanmar, Mawlamyine

Info : Mawlamyaing Strand

Mawlamyine (formerly Moulmein), inspired both Rudyard Kipling and George Orwell and is a fascinating place where palm trees and meandering vines crawl amidst the crumbling mosques and distressed colonial buildings. With few visitors accommodation is a little limited, and the Mawlamyaing Strand is about as good as it gets. It’s a standard hotel with spacious rooms and adequate facilities in the centre of the town. Don’t expect anything close to luxury, but do enjoy its fabulous riverside location. Take an afternoon stroll along the stupa-capped hills for amazing views of the town and the Salween River as it stretches out towards the Andaman Sea.

There are 47 superior rooms, 6 royal deluxe rooms and 4 deluxe rooms. They are sparsely decorated but certainly spacious, functional and clean. The rooms all feature private bathrooms that are clean, but by no means modern or luxurious. 


Comfort - This is our lead in category. There will generally be a no frills approach and while some will be characterful, some will do exactly what it says on the tin - provide a clean, comfortable and good value place to spend the night. These places are normally 3* hotels.

Customer Feedback
We enjoyed a 3 week trip exploring both the well known places as well as the less developed areas. We also balanced the trip with a variety of walks and activities as well as time for several half day breaks to relax. The Myanmar people are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The colours of the country are outstanding, wonderful dusty landscapes with rice fields and palm trees as well as so many amazing pagodas rich in colour and symbolism. Our best parts were the less well known places but Lake Inle and Bagan are must do places and are still not overrun by tourists. Experience Travel Group tailored a trip for our needs and knew how to do so and suggest appropriate hotels and means of travel.
