A former British hill station, Loi-mwe sits among some of Burma’s prettiest countryside. The town’s low-key charm lies in its collection of old colonial buildings, artfully exuding faded grandeur alongside colourful flowerbeds. But it’s the journey to Loi-mwe that’s the real pleasure. Here in the cool highlands, countless generations have sculpted the contours of the land, enriching the lakes and forests with rice fields and terraces, creating a landscape of profound allure and serenity. The road there may at times be bumpy, but Loi-mwe is part of an area that is never less than a charm to travel through.
