Welcome to Kyaingtong

Kyaingtong was long caught in the crossfire between various ethnic armies, rival drug lords and the Myanmar military, but the area is now peaceful. The rugged terrain of eastern Shan State contributes to a palpable sense of isolation: Kyaingtong is an outpost of development amid largely deforested mountains that are home to Wa, Akha, Palaung and Lahu villages where little has changed in centuries. Unsurprisingly, hill treks are a major attraction here.

Myanmar on a Shoestring

Amazing, surreal, largely untouched by modernity — there are a ton of ways to describe Myanmar (also known as Burma), but it’s better to visit and see for yourself. Using Thailand as a jumping off point, take two weeks to walk, hike, and roam all over the region, from the Bagan temples and ruins to the rice paddies and rural hilltribes. And with an expert Chief Experience Officer (CEO) guiding you along the way, you'll get the most out of your cultural immersion in different Myanma towns. Just trust us when we say you need to experience the wonder and beauty of Myanmar for yourself at least once in your life. Make that time now — right now.

Vietnam, Laos & Myanmar on a Shoestring

There’s no time like now to take on an epic adventure. (Seriously, like right now.) Imagine five packed weeks of hitting up the best destinations that four countries in Southeast Asia have on offer. This trip covers a serious amount of ground (and some water, too.) Chill out on the most golden of golden beaches along Vietnam's sunny coast, cruise through Vietnam’s famed Halong Bay, and trek among the rice paddies in Myanmar (Burma). This is one unique itinerary that every first-time (or repeat) visitor to Southeast Asia should experience.
