High Tea at the Strand Hotel

Step back in time to the days of the British colonial era. Take a break from your Yangon sight-seeing tour and head to the elegant Strand Hotel for high tea on your exclusive Yangon Food Tour.

Myanmar’s “Luxury, Calm, and Voluptuousness”

Once inside the reception hall you will immediately feel transported back in time. Built in 1901, The Strand is one of Yangon’s most atmospheric heritage buildings. With its high ceilings, slow-moving fans, and elegant furniture it is easy to imagine British nobility and explorers gathering in the lobby during the colonial period. Although the property underwent extensive renovation in 2016, The Strand retains its charm and elegance.

Treat yourself with high tea at Yangon’s Strand Café

From the lobby, step into the Strand Café for high tea. Relax in a wicker arm chair while the lacquer fans slowly spin above you. Your high tea service offers the option of a selection of local Myanmar-inspired snacks or a classic British menu. True to form, the classic high tea comes served on a beautiful tiered tray while the Burmese option is presented in a locally-made lacquerware tiffin box. Enjoy the delicious gourmet flavors along with a pot of tea or coffee.

As with any good high tea experience, the atmosphere at The Strand Café is superb. The space is elegant yet not pretentious. The service is warm and efficient without being overbearing. There is no rush, so take your time to enjoy this uniquely Yangon experience. Linger over a cup of tea while chatting about your Myanmar tour or day-dreaming about the Yangon of yore.

After you have finished your high tea at The Strand, bid farewell to the colonial atmosphere and exit into the streets of modern-day Yangon.
