Well known for its colonial-style houses with large compound and pine trees, eucalyptus and silver-oak abound in town.

The National Kandawgyi Gardens (formerly National Botanical Gardens) is located in the Alpine town about 1.5 km south of Pyin Oo Lwin (formerly Maymyo), Myanmar. This 437 acre (including 70 acres of lakes) contains countless specimens of Myanmar's rich natural resources: forestland (pines, bamboo, teak and other trees), open parkland with peacocks, swans, ducks and full of temperate flowers in season, orchids, and roses. The Gardens were first developed by Mr. Alex Rodger, the Forest Research Officer of the time, and Lady Cuffe, a botanist from Kew Botanical Gardens, London. They were declared a State-recognized Garden in 1917. By 1942 it contained 178 species of orchids. Today it has almost 600 species of local and foreign trees, and the largest orchid collection in Myanmar.
