Hsipaw Train Station

Hsipaw, And a Failed Train Ride

After a crazy bus ride from Nyaungshwe (Inle Lake) we arrived to the small town of Hsipaw, where we failed multiple times to take a famous train ride.

We ended the 3-day hike from Kalaw by taking a boat ride from the southern floating farms in Inle Lake to the northern town of Nyaungshwe.

This hike is a classic on the backpacking circuit in Myanmar. Without wanting to miss out on things, we signed up for longer the 3-day hike.

Kalaw, In The Shan State of Myanmar

We left busy Yangon for the tranquility of this hill town, as we prepared to start a 3-day hike. We arrived at Kalaw after comfortable night bus. I was able to get a good amount of sleep despite frequent stops throughout the night.

Yangon, And First Impressions of Myanmar

We arrived in Myanmar from Taipei after a layover in the middle of the night in Kuala Lumpur. With only three hours of uncomfortable sleep, I was a bit groggy as I stood in line for immigration.
