Beautiful locations with locals in their traditional dress. Some can be touristy you just have to do a bit of research.

Very disappointed at the commercialism. The village was deserted as the people work.The shan village was just a series of shops all selling the same over priced tea.Nothing special to see or buy,a waste of time go to pai.
