A large rural region spread across a hilly plateau, Shan State offers scenic lakes and rich ethnic traditions. A Shan State itinerary usually involves a tour of tribal villages, the most spectacular ones floating on high-altitude lakes. With Buddhist temple complexes featuring large gold-colored stupas and a tour of the famous Golden Triangle, a trip to Shan State reveals a patchwork of ethnic groups and wildlife reserves. Nature-lovers can enjoy scenic hikes, caves, and floating gardens, or embark on a boat tour. With vibrant local traditional markets, you can comfortably browse traditional lacquerware and hand-woven products.
