PyinOoLwin is where an eternal colonial tranquillity greets you as you enter. On reaching the township, there is immediate change in climate. The air is cooler and the palm trees have given path to pine and fir trees. There are also nurseries, meadow of flowers and fruit trees. PyinOoLwin's botanical garden is 49 acres wide and there you will find natural forest with walking paths, a rose garden, an orchid house and a number of ponds. It is quite well-known for its British lodges and country homes that still endure in good condition like Purcell Tower; the clock tower in which the clock was made in 1934 and Church of the Immaculate that is 100 year old.
