The capital of Shan State, Taunggyi is a wonderful gateway to the region, especially to Inle Lake, and you'll find many of the best places to stay in Taunggyi actually sit just outside the city.

Taunggyi is known for its wonderful fire balloon festival, held at the beginning of November, and during which vast paper hot air balloons in the shape of animals hover in the air over the city. In the evenings the balloons carry treats and fireworks as well, so it can get pretty interesting.

On a non-festival day Taunggyi is a big, mountaintop market town, known for its tea and Thai and Chinese goods.

Best Places to Stay in Taunggyi

For luxury hideaway

  • The MONTE diVINO Lodge is a wonderful hideaway not far from Taunggyi and Inle Lake. It also has the honour of being Burma's first vineyard. So far there are just three minimalist teak bungalows on stilts, offering views of the vines and the lush, misty valley beyond. But there's also a restaurant and, of course, plenty of local wine to try.

For Lake Inle location

  • If you want to overlook Lake Inle, then Villa Inle is a must. This boutique eco-lodge offers immaculate stilted villas, superb spa and excellent food.
