There was some sporadic shelling and reports of fighting in the hours following the cease-fire that began early Saturday, the BBC reported.
The cease-fire came after 18 months of fighting between the military and rebels following the collapse of a 17-year truce in mid-2011.
Tens of thousands of people have been displaced since the conflict started in Myanmar, formerly Burma.
