    Map Of Inle

    by vuzu Written Dec 2, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Hope this map could give some hints when you're in Inle.
    Nyaung Shwe is where Inle Lake located. All the buses will end either in Heho or Shwe Nyaung. You need to take a local transport from Heho to Nyaung Shwe then.

    Sunset over Stupas

    by herzog63 Updated Jun 11, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The area near the canal is a great place to wander. Your can find some Temples in the area too. There is a path that runs along the canal so you probably won't get lost. And if you do almost everyone speaks english so just ask someone to send you in the right direction.

    Quackers

    by herzog63 Updated Jun 11, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There were lot's of ducks and chickens running around most of the houses. I saw lots of chickens for sale and chicken dishes but I didn't see duck dishes at restaurants. Maybe I didn't look close enough to notice but I wanted to try some of the duck dishes so I must have missed them.

    Checking out the laundry

    by herzog63 Updated Jun 11, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: You could always see laundry drying on the porch of the local homes. It must be difficult to dry clothes during the rainy season. They must just hang everything up in the house and off every available space.

    by herzog63 Updated Apr 1, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: These boats are travelling at full speed hauling people across the lake to villages and fields along the lake.

    Fondest memory: If you blow the picture up you can see the boats coming across the lake. If you don't blow it just take my word for it. LOL

    Early Morning fisherman

    by herzog63 Written Apr 1, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: We got up very early and met our boat at 6 am and headed down the canal. There was quite a bit of activity at that time of day. Field workers heading to the fields and the fisherman where already on the water.

    Cool Building

    by herzog63 Written Apr 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I don't know what this building was for but I just liked it. It is right on the canal. Alot of the boat drivers hang out near hear trying to round up customers. I didn't find them to be very pushy. They would ask if you wanted a ride in a friendly way and if you didn't want a ride just say no. They didn't keep going after you like some places that I have visited.

    Local Home

    by herzog63 Written Apr 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Some of the bigger homes had a couple buildings and seemed a little more insulated. As it can get quite cool in the evenings. I was there in March which is the HOT season and it was pretty cool in the evening so probably in Nov-Dec it could be almost cold as Inle lake is at 875 meters above sea level.

    Life on the canal

    by herzog63 Updated Mar 31, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This guy operates on of the big long boats for one of the hotels that hauls tourists around. Those boats are quite inexpensive to get full day tours of the lake if you are pressed for time. I paid 7000 kyat US $8.25 for an 11 hour tour which included Indein a beautiful village on the west side of the lake.

    Life on the canal

    by herzog63 Written Mar 31, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I'm assuming that most people are expert boatsmen (women) starting at an early age as everything is water based. Boats came in various sizes. Some of the boats are quite long.

    Local transportation

    by herzog63 Updated Mar 31, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If you live on the canal you have to have a boat to get around. There aren't roads connecting all of the inner areas so you would have to take a boat home.
