Visitors in Burma/Myanmar should go to the region's open-air markets. Whether you're an atheist or one of the faithful, visitors are guaranteed to find a little serenity at Burma/Myanmar's temples and other holy sites.
If you're seeking something a little different from sightseeing, why not try the local watersports? Swimming and scuba diving are both well-established in the area.
Get to the heart of the Burma/Myanmar culture by taking your tastebuds for a tour of the region's restaurants. Ngapi (fermented seafood) and also a thoke (salads) are commonly used in food in this area. Why not try tea leaf salad or shan-style rice (fish rice)? Both dishes are a common fare in this area. To complete your typical local dining experience, try halawa (sticky rice, butter and coconut). Black tea is popular option to ask for no matter what time it is.
If you plan on arriving and departing by plane, take into account that the nearest major airport is Xishuangbanna Airport, 90 miles (145 kilometers) to the northeast of Kengtung.
