Inle Lake holidays

One of Burma’s top five tourist destinations, scenic Inle Lake lies in Shan State and is famous for its floating gardens and villages, the leg-rowers of the Intha tribe, and a diverse mix of ethnic minority cultures. The main access point is Nyaung Shwe located at the north end of the lake. The town was once a sleepy village which has grown into a bustling traveller centre with many guesthouses and hotels, restaurants and cafés serving pasta and pancakes. The main means of transport for transfers and sightseeing around the lake is by long tail boat.
