Attractions in Kyaing Tong

Kyaing Tong, a small trading town in the Eastern Shan State and the capital city of the Golden Triangle Region, is situated about 1,190 Km (about 1 hour 30 minutes' flight) northeast of Yangon. The town is famous for its villages of several hill-tribes such as Lahu, Akha, La Mone and Shans living in the surrounding areas. There are many sites to see besides the ethnic tribes in colorful dresses. As Keng Tung lies on low undulating ground, not far from the Thai border, it serves as one of the most suitable places for eco-tourism activities like trekking, mountain-biking and adventure tours.
