The Governor’s Residence, Yangon, Myanmar

Bhamo

Situated in the state of Kachin, Bhamo is a trading post close to the Chinese border, and has suffered frequent incursions over the centuries. Today it is home to a daily market which attracts many ethnic minorities to the town. You can often catch the colourful costumes and faces of Kachin, Shan, Lisu and Palaung people. 

Adventurous travellers might enjoy the local ferry boat trip from Bhamo to Mandalay, that takes you through lush jungle, bamboo forests and steep rock gorges.

The so-called Ledo Road etches out a route through the rocky mountain region of Kachin State. This old caravan route was upgraded in 1965 to link China, Myanmar and India but has since fallen into disrepair. Kachin is just opening up to tourism and will soon become an important destination. 

Magnificent mountain scenery, the great Ayeyarwady River and a fascinating mix of people from many different ethnic minorities are all features of this intriguing state.
