Hpa-An is the small but bustling capital of Kayin State, located close to the border with Thailand and is rarely visited by western travellers. The town itself is not particularly inspiring but the surrounding scenery and authentic charm make it an interesting stop en route from Mawlamyine to Yangon.

Trip to Kawgun Caves, Hpa AnHpa-An is surrounded by limestone mountains with the tallest being Mt Zwegabin where close by you can visit the impressive Kawgun Cave. Hidden away in the hills the cave was discovered in 1975 and contains thousands of 7th century tiny clay Buddha images and carvings, hidden precariously over the walls and roof of the main cave.
