Escape Yangon's Heat
Have a draught Dagon (the local Myanmar beer) at the bar of the venerable Strand Hotel in Yangon. Built in 1901 by the Sarkies brothers who were also responsible for the Raffles in Singapore
and the E and O in Penang, the bar with its efficient air-conditioning is a welcome respite from the blazing heat of a Yangon day. With its colonial architecture it's an opportunity to experience, if only for an afternoon, the charm of a by-gone day.
