Mawlamyine Region Motorbike Tour – 8 days

Mawlamyine was the first capital of British Burma between 1826 and 1852 after the Tanintharyi (Tenassarim) coast, along with Arakan, was ceded to Britain under the Treaty of Yandabo at the end of the First Anglo-Burmese War. Mawlamyine is the setting of George Orwell’s famous 1936 memoir Shooting an Elephant. The essay opens with the striking words: “In Moulmein, in Lower Burma, I was hated by large numbers of people—the only time in my life that I have been important enough for this to happen to me.” During colonial times, Moulmein had a substantial Anglo-Burmese population; an area of the city was known as ‘Little England’ due to the large Anglo-Burmese community, many of them running rubber plantations; nowadays, this has dwindled to a handful of families as most have left for the UK or Australia.It is probably best known to English speakers through the opening lines of Rudyard Kipling’s poem Mandalay:
