Villages and Landmarks , Loikaw
Myanmar, Loikaw

Info : Villages and Landmarks

Loikaw is a small city, the capital of Myanmar’s remote Kayah State home to traditional Burmese tribal populations. There is a strong Christian, Animist and Buddhist presence here but all religions and tribes appear to live together harmoniously.   

During a stay in Loikaw your guide will enlighten you on the unique culture of the area. You’ll stroll through the central markets followed by a visit to the Ngwe Taung dam, a very beautiful and peaceful landmark. Get off-the-beaten-track by visiting some of the local villages close by, including Sunboon Padaumg and Htay Thama Dawsawbi Kayah, where tribes still lead very traditional lifestyles that involve weaving, distinctive costume and body decoration, and nat worshipping. The highlight of the stay will be visiting Thiri-Mingalar Taung-kwe, the landmark of Kayah State, here you’ll watch a beautiful sunset and enjoy panoramic view of Loikaw and beyond.

Customer Feedback
Our guide told us the stories behind things, rather than reeling of facts and figures. She brought Inle Lake and the surrounding cultures to life for us. And on the last day she organised a free late check out for us which I really appreciated. We felt she had really done her homework on us and also on all the places we visited.
