Activity Holidays accommodation across Burma
Kengtung Princess Hotel (Kengtung)
The Princess Hotel offers clean, comfortable guest rooms in the centre of Kengtung. Equipped with a generator to counter the intermittent mains power supply, and offering cable television and air-conditioning, the Princess' facilities are some of the best in town. The staff are extremely friendly and the restaurant serves an extensive menu of Burmese and international cuisines.
Mountain Top Guesthouse (Golden Rock)
Perched on the top of the Kyaiktyo mountain, the Mountain Top is the best of the very limited range of accommodation options available at the Golden Rock.

Traditional style bungalows have been carefully placed within the resort's manicured lawns and exotic gardens.
