I’m sure glad we had a great time exploring Inle Lake. Myanmar has been kicking my ass since I arrived in the country. I got a banana peel thrown at me in Bagan followed by the worst food poisoning in my life. When we left Inle Lake, we got scammed by our hotel and sold us bad bus tickets. This caused Karen and myself to lose our hostel reservation in Yangon.

Needless to say, Myanmar hasn’t been kind to us since going there. Thankfully, exploring Inle Lake almost made up for all the bad things that happened to us.

If you love adventure and photography, then Inle Lake is the place for you.

Dimsum after the boat tour

Inle Lake

Everything you see in the pictures above was included in our boat tour. We paid a total of 10,000 ($10 CAD) Kyats for both Karen and myself. After speaking to some locals, they said you can even bargain this price down even lower! However, $10 CAD for a full day tour is already a great price. Surprisingly enough, Myanmar is somewhat a cheap travel destination (except for accommodations).

After we completed the boat tour, Karen and myself celebrated with a yummy dim sum dinner that you see above. The dim sum was so delicious; you really need to eat it should you visit this famous lake.

If you ever visit Myanmar, then visiting this infamous lake town is mandatory. Don’t miss it!

  1. Lovely Inle Lake glad you enjoyed the place. Unfortunately there are many scumbugs around and many tourist to prey. How to prevent?

    1. Well, I think unless you know a local, it’s pretty hard to prevent tourist preys. However, I did find one guest house that had amazing customer service. We didn’t stay there and I wish we did, but we ate our lunch there because they have a restaurant and got to know the owner. She even had amazing English and can also speak French as a result of studying abroad. The guest house’s name is: Ma Naw Thukha Hotel. I’m pretty sure the owner can help you fend off scumbags there.
