Hpa-an, Myanmar travel guide for backpackers or budget travelers in Southeast Asia. Tips on where to stay, what to do and eat in Hpa-an.
I live in Bangkok and I've never heard about this palace before. Very interesting! Definitely off the beaten track for traveling in Myanmar
@Pete, neither had we...but we are SO glad we visited Hpa-An, such a cool little river town, and the people were so incredibly kind (like everywhere in Myanmar)
@honeytrek Oh yeah! They are very conservative. I went to Bagan and I simply left my bike unlocked and no one steals it. :) I always recommend people if they want to experience Buddhist religion at its best, don't come to Thailand, go to Myanmar instead. The traditions are much better preserved there.
