Don't Miss in Katha
George Orwell's Former Home: Katha was home to author George Orwell in the 1920s, when Burma was a British colony. His former home is a short drive from the main village. The town was the setting for Orwell's book, "Burmese Days," though he refers to it as the fictional "Kyauktada." You won't be able to go inside, but it's still worth a quick jaunt if you're a history or literature buff.
