Life on this shallow freshwater lake is just captivating: With no roads or sidewalks , locals and visitors can only get around in narrow wooden boats outfitted with outboard propellers, that can be raised and lowered depending on water levels. Whilst the homes are modest, they a full of character and colour and filled with extremely welcoming and friendly families. The waterways bustle with activity and used by locals to wash their clothes as well as themselves. Fishermen work the lake, using a mesmerizing one-legged paddling technique you won’t see anywhere else in the world. They even grow tomatoes which are farmed on floating gardens and anchored by bamboo.
The authenticity on Inle lake and Myanmar in general is a very welcoming experience.
