Welcome to Taungoo

The Karen hills to the east are famed for their vegetables and coffee. The area is also known for its numerous areca (betel) palms. In Myanmar, when someone receives unexpected good fortune, they are likened to a betel-lover receiving a paid trip to Taungoo.

A dry-weather road continues east all the way to Loikaw, though it's a rough and slow journey.
