Kalaw

Picturesque stone cottages with peaked roofs dot pine-clad mountains of Kalaw. The hill station has drawn people from the plains since colonial times, and they are now joined by a new generation looking for a nature friendly lifestyle. Sikhs, Nepalese, Indians and Brits have left their mark on the local cuisine, the town’s unique architecture and contributed to a peaceful multicultural community. On market days Kalaw’s population doubles when farmers from the surrounding villages flock to town with fresh produce, making Kalaw one of Myanmar’s most attractive heritage towns.
