What is TM Farm Roadhouse?
TM Farm Roadhouse is a new recreational place in Yangon located in Nwe Khwe New Village near the Htauk Kyant War Cemetary. It was scheduled to open at the beginning of 2021. However, due to the COVID-19 situation and the coup, it was opened on 22th Dec, 2021. It is a relaxing place where you can feel the atmosphere of Myanmar countryside with an environmentally friendly surrounding. It is a business expansion of TM bakery opened in Htauk Kyant, Hlegu and Bago.
Things to do and Highlight
The entrance gate is decorated with bullock cartwheels as an inspiration for rural areas of Myanmar.
“As the farm is as big as 18 acres, it offers many beautiful sceneries such as a long wooden bridge, cattle farm, birdhouses, a white pagoda in the distance. It makes you feel like you are in the countryside.”
The highlight of the farm is the long wooden bridge where you can walk in the middle of a vast green grass landscape. These grasses are also used in feeding the cattle. On the bridge, there are benches where you can sit and enjoy the view. You can also take Instagramic photos with the beautiful scenery. The view is exceptionally fascinating at sunset and sunrise. If you walk to the end of the bridge, you can see the cattle farm. You can also buy organic fruits and vegetables from the farm.
The farm has a two-storey building restaurant where you can have milk and dairy products, cakes, cookies and cold drinks. Myanmar traditional food such as Mohinga, Nan Gyi Thoke and other snacks are also available. The decoration of the restaurant is the theme of a retro vibe where you can take great shots for your social media. Next to the restaurant, is an art gallery where you can buy art products and paintings.
How to get there?
You can take YBS No (37) until you get to the Htauk Kyant War Cemetery called Lan Thit bus stop. At the Lan Thit bus stop, there are many cycle taxis you can rent. It only costs 500-1000 mmk to get to the farm from the bus stop. It takes around 5mins on a motorbike or 20mins on foot. For those who go there by their own car, it is suggested you have a cycle taxi rental as there are many small road curves and it is hard to turn your car around.
Entrance Fee and Opening Hours
The entrance fee is 1000mmk and the opening hours are from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm daily.
The main strength of this farmhouse is the location as it is located within Yangon and it is also a place of relaxation for those who would not like to travel far. TM Farm Roadhouse is an environmentally friendly place where you can relax and take a break from the noise and pollution of downtown. Hence, go and have fun.......
