Northern Shan State enjoys tourism boom


With tourism booming across Myanmar, parts of northern Shan State have also seen an increase in visitor numbers. Tourists can reach northern Shan State from Yangon by air and car, as well as by train via Mandalay and Lashio. The most attractive view for tourists during their trips from Mandalay to Lashio by train is The Goteik viaduct located between Naungkio and Kyaukme. The viaduct was built in 1903 with a length of 2260 feet and height of 320 feet. In northern Shan State there are numerous tourist attractions, including traditional bamboo ware made by locals, ancient pagodas, hot springs, and an ancient manor of Shan chieftains.—MOHT
