Landmark Location

Yoma Central connects the crossroads of Yangon's past, present and future at the historic junction between Bogyoke Aung San Road and Sule Pagoda Road, where the world's greatest landsmen, artists and statesmen once lived and worked. The Maison Continental, famed for its European confectionery, sat just across the street to where Yoma Central is today. Nearby, the renowned Smart and Mookerdum bookstore was once a favourite of George Orwell and U Thant. It is this illustrious heritage of Yangon that we honour in our mission to restore the 19th century headquarters of the Burma Railway Company into The Peninsula Yangon hotel.

Interconnected Communities

Situated at the heart of downtown, Yoma Central sits amongst the cultural and business centre of Myanmar's commercial capital. The modern revival of this great city is witnessed all around us in our bustling downtown neighbourhood, surrounded by cinemas, cafes, cultural attractions, popular eateries and streets brimming with life. The development harnesses road, rail and pedestrian traffic to benefit from the local area and return the benefit in kind.
