A look round the Vintage Luxury Yacht Hotel, Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma)

By on March 31, 2015 in Myanmar/Burma

I can’t make up my mind about this place. It is kind of fun staying on a former luxury yacht that has been converted to a 1920s theme, and yet at the same time it is all a bit weird. And, there is an odd smell in my room, the aircon is not great, and WiFi is flaky. On the plus side I do enjoy watching all the boats on the river. The yacht is also worryingly quiet. There is hardly anyone about. It feels very odd.

They have taken the 1920s faux metal theme a bit too far – they have even painted the TV remote…
