Mawlamyine is also recognized as Moulemein, a name given by the British colonial settlers. Visitors to Mawlamyine are simply charmed at the scenic beauty and its
temperate climate. The impression of post-colonial decay is still palpable here as this town was an administration hub of British Raj in the early 19th Century. It’s also a good-looking and tropical town with a ride of stupa-capped hills on one side and the sea on the others.
