A place like this with few people can legally go in to see, must be really different.

The remote Wa region of Shan state in Myanmar's east is a place few outsiders have seen. The people who live in this unofficial, effectively autonomous state within Myanmar used to be called the Wild Wa, and as the BBC's Jonah Fisher found, drugs, money and the wildlife trade are flourishing.

This area was once known for it's opium fields, but in the last few years they have been cleaning their act up. Apparently it's less obvious but the drug culture does still exist.
