Day Trip to Inle Lake
Enjoy the glittering blue waters of Myanmar’s second largest lake – Inle lake by taking a day trip to the site. The lake is surrounded by lush green hills all around. Take a boat ride on the lake and experience the life of the lakeside fishing villages. Various tour operators in Myanmar operate half-day and full-day trips to Inle Lake. We recommend choosing a trip with stops at local pagodas to add more excitement to your trip.
