Hsipaw is situated northern part of Shan state. We could call it as a Shan royal city in the past. It is historically rich and the book called “Twilight over Burma” is a great book describing the tragic events. The town is also famous with its nature too. Some tourists even prefer the trekking here than in Kalaw or anywhere in northern Thailand. Having the train ride to Hsipaw is also something special, you will pass by the famous Goke Hteik Viaduct.
