Inle Lake, Myanmar - An Unexpected Foodie Destination
On the Western side of Inle Lake, Intha villages make all kinds of sweet treats. Visit to watch locals pull, mold, fry, bake, and dry their edible crafts, and then taste test the final products. Ranging from chewy, sugary candies to flaky, rice-based pastries, there is a treat for all taste buds.
Next, with a bag of sweets in hand, rent a bike and cycle to Red Mountain Vineyard. Located on the top of a small mountain with rows of grapes cloaking the hillsides below, Red Mountain Vineyard has some of the area's most colorful views. The crisp Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with newly purchased Intha sweets too.
