Myanmar (Burma) Things to Do: 464 reviews and 930 photos

by gabriellefox

Situated in the state of Kachin, Bhamo is a trading post close to the Chinese border, and has suffered frequent incursions over the centuries. Today it is home to a daily market which attracts many ethnic minorities to the town. You can often catch the colourful costumes and faces of Kachin, Shan, Lisu and Palaung people.

Adventurous travellers might enjoy the local ferry boat trip from Bhamo to Mandalay, that takes you through lush jungle, bamboo forests and steep rock gorges.

Directions: Situated in the state of Kachin
