Shwe Taung Tarn

Boutique hotel in Mandalay

This cosy boutique boasts a tree-shaded pool and rooms with locally flavoured decorative touches and corner bathtubs. Staff are very friendly, and the location is a peaceful, if annoyingly remote, stretch of 14th St – if not for the occasional honk you'd feel as if you'd left the city. Not really, but you get the gist.
