Hsipaw, Hsipaw

(220+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
Situated on a riverbank, Hsipaw draws tourists with its laidback atmosphere and rich history. The town--which once belonged to the mightiest of Burmese small kingdoms--serves as a good base for trekking the surrounding hills dotted with ancient pagodas. Walk the dusty roads and observe locals working on rice fields and banana plantations. Take a dip in a hot water spring or a natural pool below a waterfall, or visit a Shan village and palace that was home to the last prince of Hsipaw, overthrown by the 1962 military coup. Plan to visit Hsipaw during your Hsipaw vacation using our convenient Hsipaw vacation trip planner.
