Hsipaw, Hsipaw

4.4
#4 of 13 in Historic Sites in Shan State
Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
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.
