Here’s some of what the Smiling Albino’s – Myanmar – All That Glitters, Asia’s Golden Land Brochure – 2014 has to say about Hsipaw:
“After settling into our comfortable guesthouse we’ll go walkabout in the town of Hsipaw and the fascinating Shan and Palaung villages. With its surrounding villages, natural beauty, historic stupas and cottage-industry factories, this region is a rare unspoiled gem.
Today is a genuine discovery of simple village life, we’ll learn in detail about the Shan culture as well as the history of Hsipaw. This afternoon we’ll walk through panoramic scenes of paddy fields, small creeks and smiling families. Along the way pass a unique wooden monastery as well as some small home industries like cheroot (cigar) rolling, bamboo weaving “factories”, among others.”
