Arrival in Nyaungshwe
On arrival you’ll be transferred to the tranquil Inle Lake, the largest freshwater lake in Myanmar. Stretching an impressive 13 miles long its riverbanks are dotted with enchanting Burmese villages with stilted wooden houses overlooking the water. It’s a relaxed way of life that you can’t help but adapt to when visiting. You’ll stay in a cosy guesthouse in the nearby town of Nyaungshwe where you can relax in the peaceful surroundings.
Excursion on Inle Lake
After a tasty breakfast you’ll be transferred to the dock for your boat excursion. Travelling by motorboat allows you to discover the natural beauty of the lake, visit the floating gardens, a local cheroot factory, where Burmese cigars are made, and marvel at the famous leg rowers in action. A simple lunch of Shan noodles at local family’s house will follow, giving you an insight into local people and their lives on the lake. Afterwards you’ll continue by boat to see the slower pace of life in the villages dotted along the edge of the water.
After a good night’s rest you can have a final look around the laid-back town and pick up some snacks for your journey before continuing your adventure through Myanmar.
