Casting down the tranquil, sinewy waterways of Myanmar's Inle Lake is one of the best routes to take in the country’s mysterious, rich culture at work, as daily life glides by.
Due to its tourism draw, the once sleepy village of Nyaungshwe has been put on the map – in big bold letters – and is now something of a tourism center, with plenty of restaurants, hotels, and other tourism facilities to add convenience (and unfortunately remove some authenticity) to travelers’ experience in the region.
Still, despite its popularity (I normally prefer less popular spots), Inle Lake is one of my favorite places in Myanmar. This is because it’s still possible to explore areas just a few hours from the “hot spot,” where tourists are sparse and the experiences are authentic. Join me on my latest journey on the lake, and take in the amazing temples, beautiful scenery and most importantly the people that live here.
