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.

Family Myanmar Adventure
This itinerary perfectly combines the highlights of Myanmar with something a little extra special!
Our Pandaw river cruise was excellent in every way and we had a memorable holiday. Our guide Terry made the trip for us. I couldn't recommend Pandaw more highly, it's been perfect in every way. Loved the informality of it all and the evening cocktails were delicious. Trips ashore clambering up the banks of the Irrawaddy into little villages were quite delightful and locals were fascinated by us. Excellent mixed itinerary organised by our guide which took in all aspects of life!
