We will be arriving in Kalaw on the 13th and was hoping to do the 3 day trek to Inle April 14, 15, 16. However, the trek guide we emailed told us that they will do no trekking on the day of the festivals.
Is this absolute? Do you think we can still find a trek guide even during that period?
Is that possible to hold a conference of rainforest environment in Inle lake with theme dinner and unique venue?

Hi guys, i know this might be out of topic, i havent been back to my wife's hometown in years and i am thinking about doing so soon.
She lives in Kengtung , 3 hours from tachilek. We are thinking of crossing the borders and getting a "taxi"which back a few years would be about 2000thb per vehicle, does anyhow know what the rates are like now?
my friend is in YGN now and he has to head back to Kengtung. Please tell me bus route
My family want to travel from Yangon to Lashio. What are my opions.
Bus takes too long, 20 hours? How about train? How frequent is the flight?
I saw in some travel blog it said that going to karen village cost 140B much cheaper than in Chiang Rai which is 500B. I want to see them in Tachilek, what should I do? Is the tuk tuk driver guide is okay?
Am in Myanmar in late September and hope to be travelling up North from Yangon.
Would then like to cross by air from TACHILEK into either LAOS or NORTHERN THAILAND. I believe you can get a permit from YANGON in advance to do this.
Any advice about this would be much appreciated. Am travelling alone (single male)
I will be arriving at Inle Lake in a couple of weeks. I just have two days at the lake. I land at Heho at 9:15 in the morning. I am staying at the Inle Princess Resort.
So I only have two days. I want to avoid tourist traps, but want to enjoy the lake life, seeing people, visiting major temples..
On day two Should I go to the Southern part of the lake Saga2? My understanding is this will take all day, and sounds wonderful, but I will miss other things.
Are there flights from Yangon and Heho to Keng Tung? Which airline, how often do they fly and approximate cost? Also, is it necessary to have a guide for any treks that you do? Thanks, Andrea and Joe
Does anyone have the names or addresses of such drug education programs in Tachilek? I would love to visit and see what they are doing while i am there.
We will be staying at Inle Princess Resort which is on the lake. We would like to know whether we should book a hotel transfer from Heho airport to the hotel. Can you please let me know what was your experience of getting the taxi and boat on your own and how much it cost and whether there is much room for bargaining. I was reading how the taxi drivers form a cartel. Is it similar for boats too? Thanks very much.
I'm going to travel to Lashio,Myanmar by Mid March, can someone give some tips to me regarding the situation there, a cheap accommodation but comfortable to stay, Taxi/Bus fare and so on.....
As I planned to make my move from Kalaw-Inlay Lake-Taunggi and last destination to Lashio and if possible for me to passing China border to Muse.
How did you go about hiring a boatman and how much did it cost for one day?
I will be travelling in the Inle Lake area in February 2007 - I will be with my threee teenage children (13 - 17) and would appreciate some advixce on where to stay. I am not looking for western style luxury - more rustic charm and authenticity. thanks.
How come hsipaw was able to survive the the yunnanese invasion and survive to this day when the pyu were disbursed. Is there any historical documentation or information?
Mong Tai was a kingdom long time before. Now we are under control of Burma. If u have patriotic spirit, pls better use SHAN as a race and as a shan language (not dialects).
Pls learn the history thoroughly and then try to post the web. Don't let the other people think us(SHAN) wrong. Our culture and language is unique.
How do i look for a friend in Shan State? She has got no address,
and her phone is always answered by an officer, who does not allow
