Whether traveling to Myanmar, tourists never skip the opportunity to admire the beauty and captivation of the Inle Lake – one of the most famous scenic lakes in Myanmar. Inle Lake has ever been selected as one of the five new destinations that tourists should not miss in Asia by the prestigious magazine of Condé Nast Traveler World.
After breakfast, we travel 2,5-hour driving to NyaungShwe where we observe the leg-rowing fishermen and see their floating gardens built up from strips of water hyacinth and mud and anchored to the bottom with bamboo poles.
After that, we visit Nga Phe Chaung Monastery, which houses dozens of Shan Buddha Images, but is more famous for its unique ‘jumping cats’ who jump through hoops in the air! Continue to Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda, the lake’s main sanctuary, which contains five sacred Buddha images covered in gold leaf. Explore the local crafts of Inle Lake with a stop at the cheroot factory, where the typical Burmese cigars are made by hand. If time permits, there may be time to enjoy a short walk through one of the lakeside villages. Overnight on Inle Lake.
Accommodation: Hotel in Inle Lake.
