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.

Hotels were all first rate. Bagan Thande and Inle Lake were both charming and well-run. Bagan Thande is a superb hotel! All our guides and drivers were first rate too. They went out of their way to show us around and educate us on Burmese culture and the sites were were seeing.
