Discover new cultures and traditions as you explore Inle Lake, the second largest lake in Myanmar, with this guided day tour! Begin the day with a pickup at your hotel in Nyaung Shwe City, then take a private boat ride to Inle Lake, home of the Intha people. Visit the Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda, the most highly revered monastery in the area, and marvel at the five ancient images of Buddha completely covered in gold leaf. You'll then make your way to Nga Phe Chaung Monastery, built on stilts around 200 years ago, where you can have fun watching trained cats jump through hoops! Take a quick break for lunch, at your own expense, and savor the flavors of the local cuisine as you observe the daily lives of the Intha people and watch their unique method of rowing with their legs. Once lunch is over, you'll visit the floating gardens, built from strips of water hyacinth and mud from the lake bed. Admire the variety of crops on these unique farms, including tomatoes, cucumbers and gourds, right before you head back to your hotel.
