We are privileged at The Strand by the treasure trove of 19th century and early 20th century British colonial architecture alongside us on Strand Road, including notably well preserved heritage buildings like the Custom House, the Central Post Office and the British Embassy.
Explore beyond our three storeys of Victorian colonnaded charms on foot or by traditional trishaw. Just a few steps brings you back in time among crumbling facades rich with history, vintage automobiles still in use and crowded buses which elsewhere went out of service long ago. Buddhist practitioners too are ubiquitous here, with monk dressed in brown robes and nuns in pink, especially around the shimmering Shwedagon and Sule Pagodas. In the shadows of both, real Yangon thrives.
