The colonial building will be turned into a five-star hotel in two years following the Government’s demand for more luxury accommodation in the city.

  1. Excellent article and photographs. I’m visiting Yangon in November 2016, and am passionate about architectural heritage and decay (see @adamxphotos on Instagram) – please can you advise how you got permission to photograph inside? Best wishes, Adam

    • Thanks Adam. You’ll love Yangon’s colonial buildings! I was able to visit inside because I work for the company that are carrying out restoration work there. Generally this site is not possible to visit.
      Happy travels in Myanmar!
      Cheers,
      Juan
