KAYIN STATE

        Kayin State occupies the eastern part of Taninthayi ranges, which are the continuation of the Shan highlands. Hap-an is the state capital, with monumental hills, wonderful caves and lakes. It can be reached in 8 hours drive from Yangon. The travelers can go on hiking among the Great Dawna Range. Riverine trips can be arranged along the streams such as Bilin, Don-Thami, Hlaing-Bwe etc. The leading towns of Kayin State are PhaArn, Hlaing-Bwe, Shwe-Gun, Than Daung, Kaw-Kareik, Kya-Inn-Seikkyi and Myawaddy. PhaArn, the capital, is centrally placed at the foot of the Zwe Kabin Hill. The Zwe Kabin Hill has a very unusual shape, which, once seen, is not easily forgotten. The leading town in the northern section is Than Daung. It is a very beautiful hill station and an important tea, coffee and fruit-producing region. Kayin State still has no rail service but it is well provided with natural waterways. In the north a road leads to Than Daung from ToungGoo in Bago Division. Mawchi-Mawchi road passes through the Kayin State. In the south, the Yangon-Mottama Road branches out to PhaArn via Thaton and Myaing Galay. There is another road from Mawlamyaing to PhaArn.
