Soak in the Lashio Hot Springs and relieve tired muscles. Popular with locals, the natural hot springs are large and deep enough to swim. They’re not exactly postcard-perfect but the experience is authentic. Street stall vendors serve snacks and cold drinks.

The slow but scenic train ride from Mandalay to Lashio is a signature Myanmar experience. You’ll cross the picturesque Gokteik Viaduct on the way. It was built in the early 1900s and stretches across the forested Gokteik Gorge. It’s almost 100 metres above ground level at the highest point. You can peer out the train windows for dizzying views across the gorge.

Dine at local restaurants and try Shan Kauk Sway, a local delicacy in Shan State. The noodle-based dish features pork or chicken cooked in a spicy tomato sauce and served over steamed rice. Head to the night market to try authentic Burmese street food. Claim a colourful plastic stool and fill up on local favourites like “lahpet thoke” pickled tealeaf salad, “samusa” spicy lentil soup and “mohinga” fish and rice noodles.
