Hpa-An and Golden Rock

Hpa-An is the capital of Karen State in Burma and is located to the west of Yangon and is very much off-the-beaten track. The town isn’t in itself that pretty, much the area around it allows you to see the magical traditional rural way of life. See towering limestone mountains and caves. Hpa-An is the linking point between Yangon and Mawlamyine. Golden Rock, or Kyaiktiyo Pagoda is located in Mon State, again to the east of Yangon. Perched on the edge of mountain, it is said to be balancing on a hair of the Buddha. Both these destinations are ideal if you are adventurous and want to get off the main tourist trails.
