"Hsipaw" Myanmar (Burma) Things to Do Tip by Skorpios

Myanmar (Burma) Things to Do: 467 reviews and 936 photos

  Haw Sao Pha (Shan Palace)
by Skorpios

Haw Sao Pha (Shan Palace)
Donald Sone, the nephew of the last Shan prince of Hsipaw, and his wife Fern live in this house and try to keep the memory alive.

Visiting is a must do for different reasons.
- Fern will tell you all about the dinasty of Shan Princes, especially about the last one who have been arrested during the 1962's state coup. Nobody knows if the Prince is still alive or not. Sa femme (Inge Sargent de l'Autriche) s'est envolée avec leurs deux filles et vit maintenant les Etats-Unis.
- More consciousness about what this country has been and is since many years and till now.

No entrance fee but a small donation is appreciated.
