Inle Lake is one of my favorite places in Myanmar. To experience the lake you have to hire a boat, and the further you motor along the lake the more interesting it becomes. You catch glimpses of the people going about their daily work. That might be fishing or maybe gathering moss from the lake. You can visit the markets where families come by boat to do their weekly or monthly shopping. Of course it wouldn’t be Myanmar without a temple or two along the way. You can see from this photo that the homes are generally built on stilts. Under every house there’s a small boat. There are bridges connecting some of the homes, but generally people get around by boat. I was there during the dry season, so the lake was low. The lake can be as high as a houses doorway during the rainy season.
