About Pyin Oo Lwin
Pyin Oo Lwin, formerly known as May Myo, is a small town in Mandalay Division at an altitude of 1070 meters. It was initially a Shan village situated between Naung Cho and Mandalay on the Lashio-Mandalay road. Pyin Oo Lwin is also known as “Pan Myo Daw", "The City of Flowers".
During the British colonial occupation, the British, in 1896, developed it as a hill station due to its cool alpine climate, especially during the hot season. The colonial government of Myanmar would move to May Myo during the hot season to escape from the high heat and humidity of Yangon. The name May Myo means May Town in Burmese, and comes from the town's first administrator, Colonel May.
During British rule Pyin Oo Lwin was an important educational center with the Government English High Schools such as St. Albert's, St. Joseph's Convent, St. Mary's, St. Michael's and Colgate all based here. May Myo was renamed to Pyin Oo Lwin in 1989 when the government abandoned colonial titles to the original Myanmar names.
PyinOoLwin is also well known for its colonial style houses and unique horse carriages in town. Popular products of Pyin Oo Lwin are knitted sweaters, wines, strawberry jams and various fresh fruits, as well as organic ground coffee from local plantations.
