Travel by boat to the Sangha area south of Inle Lake, home to some of Burma's many ethnic minority groups. Visit the market at Kyauktaing, a village of the Shan ethnic group who produce earthenware pottery, and stop by at the home of a local family who make robes produced from the fabric of thousands of lotus stems. Further visits can be made to villages of the Pa-O and Intha ethnic groups, where your guide will help you explore the villages and learn more about local daily life, such as methods of producing alcohol from the fermentation of rice. Throughout the journey, travel against the backdrop of beautiful landscapes of flowering trees and riverside scenery, a relaxing tour to a unique and little-visited area of Burma.
