Northern Burma Holidays

To the north and east of Mandalay is Shan State and the mostly mountainous Kachin State – both little-visited, largely untouched and with a cultural heritage distinct from the rest of the country. This is a land where time has stood still, a place of breathtaking scenery, predominately agrarian and with common traditions shared with near neighbours Thailand, Laos and China. For train enthusiasts, the journey from Maymyo to Hsipaw over the 100 year old Goitek Viaduct is a must, whilst the Shan town of Hsipaw and Chinese influenced Lashio are interesting diversions. The minority villages close to Keng Tung are also a morning’s drive from the Thai border. Further north, intrepid cruises link Mandalay with Katha on the Upper Irrawaddy or visit Bhamo and the Kachin villages surrounding Myitkyina. Pettitts have led the way in designing tailor-made holidays and tours to northern Burma for over 30 years.
