Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Much anticipation while walking the many stairs among the monk statues and beautiful surrounds. Be sure to take a photo with the archer and the spider!
    The cave holds the dedicated spiritual treasures it deserves. You just want to record the whole thing....many photo ops.
    The view from the hill is beautiful too.

    Christ The King Church is excellent monument of history and architecture. From here you are going to get stunning views at the Kalaw City itself. Pretty view of the city from up here, would be a lot nicer if they maintained the grounds and cleaned up the litter in the streets though. Church timetable is on Sunday mass 7:45 AM. Most of the time this church seems to be closed it will be opened on Sunday, you had to ask locals for times as not on display.Worth visiting to Church when you in Kalaw.It is not so far from downtown of Kalaw Railway Station ,Market and Shwe Oo Min Pagoda so on.

    In October and in December I visited the spa, they even recognized me after two months! The atmosphere is really relaxing, we were the only ones there both times. The ladies are very kind and give an amazing foot massage (including shoulder and back), only 15.000 kyat for a hour. Highly recommended this spa, especially before going on the trek to Inle.

    I had traditional massage and found it to be ok. Super clean and staff are good. They have only two staffs, hence if more than 2 people visit at same time, then it's a long wait. There are not many spa place sin Kalaw, so i would recommend it.

    Looking for a fun thing to do in Kalaw in between treks? Look no further!
    The escape game was engaging and very well thought, not too easy nor too difficult. Takes about one hour, price is 5000 Kyats per person.
    Also a good initiative to provide work for the local youth.
