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 guides in Yangon, Bagan, and Kalaw / Lake Inle were wonderful. They struck the right balance of explaining the history and importance of the sights we were seeing without over-doing it, they knew where to get the best view/experience at what time and could rearrange experiences so we got the most out of them. A standout was our guide in Kalaw / trek / Lake Inle. He was as keen to learn from us as he was to teach us, he bent over backwards to make sure we were happy and comfortable, and he was just plain fun too!
