Fresh produce, household goods, traditional and contemporary clothing, consumables, pharmaceuticals - everything. Kengtung is unaccustomed to foreigners, so be prepared for stares and shy responses from stallholders and customers alike. Stroll the market and enjoy the colours, sights and smells.

A great place to explore with a few different things on offer from the markets in neighbouring Thailand. The people are very friendly and curious towards western tourists, in a very nice way. Highly recommended for a half day of rambling.

Hi, It is possible to travel by land from Kengtung to Taunggyi. Rather then buses, I recommend to hire a car to travel to Taunggyi. Hotels can help you arrange it. However, best if you consult the visa requirements and... More
