A garrison town filled with history and many British colonial houses.
For example, The Governor's House. Another 3 government hotels which were built during the British colonial days. Cool air. 3 hours' drive up the mountains from Mandalay. Has a botanical garden.
Horse carts, flowers and fruits, plantations.
Should relax and explore for 2 days here but has to rush off to Lake Inle after 1 day's stay.
