Myanmar - Eastern Myanmar (Chapter)
This is the Eastern Myanmar chapter from Lonely Planet’s Myanmar (Burma) guidebook.
The shaggy hills of Shan State accommodate some of the country’s most fabled outdoor pursuits: boating, trekking and caving. Once you’ve caught your breath, explore the sparsely touristed enclaves of ethnic Tai and hill tribes in the border regions.
- drift around the backwaters, ruined stupas and tribal markets at Inle Lake
- gasp at the sight of more than 8700 golden buddhas in the atmospheric cave pagoda at Pindaya
- restaurants & accommodation
- go pagoda-hopping then trip out to traditional hill-tribe villages in Kengtung
Coverage includes: Thazi & around, Kalaw, Pindaya, Inle Lake & around, Nyaungshwe, Kengtung (Kyaingtong) & border areas and Tachileik, Kayah State.
