Accommodation In Myanmar
History and culture in Yangon
Despite losing its capital city status, Yangon remains Myanmar's largest city, boasting an array of photo-worthy architecture including the Shwedagon Pagoda, Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue and the Holy Trinity Cathedral. You can enjoy the opulence of Asian-inspired accommodation, opt for more Westernised elegance or combine the two.
With award-winning hotels such as the 5-star Belmond Governor's Residence and The Strand Yangon, luxurious surrounds and unbeatable hospitality is never far away. Alternatively, you can find more affordable accommodation that still delivers a stylish edge and generous services such as the Hotel Windsor and Thamada Hotel.
Mandalay and the Royal Palace
The city of Mandalay is based predominantly around the Royal Palace, but you'll be able to see so much more during a visit to this culturally rich city including several monasteries, temples and statues. There's also an abundance of restaurants and outlets selling local and international food.
Accommodation in Mandalay has a way of making you feel like royalty, thanks to the collection of sumptuous hotels such as the Triumph Hotel, Hotel by the Red Canal and the Hotel Yadanarbon. Those seeking a bit more of a bargain might want to try the award-winning Smart Hotel.
Myanmar's beach resort
Blessed with a 15-kilometre stretch of unspoilt coastline, Ngwe Saung is a great place to escape for a relaxing beachside retreat. Regardless of what your budget is, you can find the right kind of accommodation to suit your needs. To the north, those without limits can find plenty of upscale resorts such as the Aureum Palace Resort & Spa, Hotel Amazing and the ViewPoint Lodge.
If you head further south, the beach becomes more populated by backpacker hostels and budget-friendly bungalows. This is where those on a budget should seek accommodation if they wish to enjoy this beautiful area without spending too much money.
