Once you cross the Mon River, you’re no longer in Thailand but have entered Burma through the backdoor. Step into remote and untouched forests, see the light green rice paddies and explore villages, each with its own history, where hundreds of curious eyes welcome you.
From the border town of Myawaddy, you will head towards Hpa An, the capital of the Kayin State. Kayak through the rice fields, in the shadows of immense limestone cliffs. From Hpa An you will make it downstream on the mighty Thanlwin River until the city of Mawlamyine, where the river hits the Gulf of Myanmar.
Be a voyager on the train ride to the Golden Rock, a delicately balancing rock and important pilgrimage site. Then head for Yangon’s urban beat, a bit noisier than the back-lands, yet somehow still slow with hidden backstreets and stories to be told.If you like to approaching Burma (Myanmar) through the backdoor and is ok with the fact that you will most likely meet nobody else in Burma who have done this trip – then Go Beyond the ordinary.
If you’d like to approach Burma (Myanmar) through the backdoor and is ok with a route that only a few have taken before you, then go for the Burma Backdoor Explorer!
