Kengtung (Cheingtung, Chiang Tung, Kengtong, Kyaingtong) is a town in Shan State, Eastern Myanmar.

Get in

Best way is by bus from Tachilek (350 Thai Baht), or shared taxi from Tachilek (450 b/person, 4 people).

Get around

The town itself is walkable. Motortaxis are 500 Kyat.


Hilltribe trekking can be arranged through your guesthouse or through an independent guide. When trekking, make sure that you don't give kids candy, unless you are prepared to provide toothbrushes as well.




Shan Khow Soi-shan noodle soup is the staple of the region. Otherwise, try some local burmese curry restaurants.


Rice whisky is cheap and potent. A Chinese beer costs around 800 Kyat.


Harry's guesthouse: Comfortable double beds and hot showers for a reasonable price.
