Loikaw Balloon Ride


Loikaw is the capital city of Myanmar’s Kayah State. Due to its remote location, Loikaw is one of the least visited cities in Myanmar, making it a perfect destination for tourists who are looking for off-the-beaten places to explore. Getting to Loikaw will take more than half a day of bus travel coming from Yangon. But once you arrive at your destination, you’ll realize that the journey is truly worth it. Loikaw offers plenty of exciting activities for travelers to enjoy. And if you want your trip to be memorable, you should book a Loikaw balloon ride adventure.
