Visiting Burma's Inle Lake
Nyaungshwe is a sedate, sleeping fishing village buffeting and hosting droves of travellers every year, as they flock to appreciate the simple, natural splendour of Inle Lake; spanning a welcome mat of emerald fields, valleys and vegetation, before halting before a thriving marshland, absolutely teeming with fascinating animal life. Pancakes and pasta, salads and Western fare abound here, as tens of restaurants, guesthouses and hotels vie to keep abreast of a roaring trade.
A small -town on the water, stilt villages make use of the aquatic environment and haul in the freshest seafood you’ll ever taste, delighting many visitors with floating markets and gardens, balancing a fine line between life and the river floor.
Bid goodbye to the pervasive stickiness of the rest of Myanmar, as the silvery sheen of the water’s edge creates a cooler afternoon experience; you won’t be sweating your last scull of water away within moments of sipping it up.
Inle Lake and Nyaungshwe are not for the fast paced or do-something-a-minute traveller; delve deeper into the serene channel and put along on a motorised canoe, letting the day run away and spend the night sampling a hearty meal, talking with friends and enjoying life, as it is in one moment.
