Increasing numbers of foreigners are finding their way to delightful Hsipaw (သီေပါ; pronounced ‘see-paw’ or ‘tee-bor’), drawn by the possibilities of easily arranged hill treks. Many people, though, find the town's laid-back vibe and intriguing history as a Shan royal city as much of an attraction and spend far longer here than they intended. With just enough tourist infrastructure to be convenient, Hsipaw is a great stop for anyone wanting to visit an interesting northern Shan State town.
