Inle Lake is one of Myanmar’s most popular destinations, and with good reason. A vast serene lake dotted with floating villages and Buddhist temples. Home to picturesque Intha fishermen who dangle one-legged off their boats as they bob gently past the marshy edges. A day trip to the lake will take you to pagodas sat atop the green banks as well as tobacco and weaving factories whose foundations stretch into the watery depths of the lake. It is a spectacular place to visit and well worth the hype.
