In Yangon our two recommendations to stay include:
The Strand Hotel: The Strand Hotel was built in 1901 and is the beautiful old colonial hotel downtown. It is also perfect for a meal, tea or a drink. You feel like you are living in a different age.
Belmond Governor’s Residence Hotel: This hotel is located in a colonial style mansion from the 1920’s. It is a wonderful spot with gardens and lotus pools.
In Bagan we recommend the Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary Resort, which is a very nice property/spa located long the river.
At Inle Lake we recommend the lovely Inle Princess Hotel right on the lake.
