What sets this town apart from its Shan brothers is its once-in-a-lifetime train ride journey, particularly the one starts from Mandalay. Combining it with â€œLittle Baganâ€ just adds another enticing reason why you should see it. And would Hsipaw be more appealing to you if we say that it has a refreshing cool climate as well? Also rent a cheap bicycle and inexpensively get around the town to see locals in their paddy fields, waterfalls, fresh water pools and rock formations of the surrounding hills. Or trek to a nearby village, Namhsan, the tea capital of Myanmar. Or perhaps chill in the boat to the Dokhtawady River. Hsi Paw awaits.
