Getting There & Away
The state capital Loikaw has a small airport with daily flights to Yangon (Rangoon). Buses and minivans link Loikaw with Yangon and Mandalay, as well as with Taunggyi, Kalaw and Nyaungshwe (for Inle Lake). Loikaw has a train station but at the time of research no trains were running to/from Loikaw.
It is also possible to arrive and depart in Loikaw by catching the daily ferry that runs to and from Inle Lake, which leaves and arrives from Phe Khon, an hour's drive north of Loikaw.
