Bagan is chock full of Buddhist temples from the 10th and 11th centuries. It's best to view temples in the early morning or at sunset when the temperatures are low and the light is optimal for photography. Be sure to visit temples that are big,...

Inle Lake, Myanmar (Burma)
I arrive at Nyaung Shwe, Inle Lake’s main development, in the dead of night and immediately book myself into a boat tour of the lake, wondering aloud if the notorious Nayar, a mythical dragon with four legs, still patrols the waters. An old man...

Intha, Myanmar (Burma)
In a country with very rough travel if you’re taking local buses, Inle Lake is a welcome respite. Like much of Myanmar, life in the main lakeside town of Nyaungshwe hasn’t changed much in 100 years. The horse and buggy is still a viable,...

Kaung Daing Village Nyaung Shwe Township Southern Shan State Inle Lake, Myanmar (Burma)
A visit to the local 5-day rotating farmer's market - where the hill tribes like the PaO people do their shopping - is something not to be missed at Inle Lake in Myanmar. Enjoy flattened rice cakes and juice directly out of the coconut while...

Inle Lake in Burma offers many choices for visitors to the area. A floating market, floating vegetable gardens and the famous one legged rowing fishermen are among the most frequent activities but dig a bit deeper and find some additional gems....

If you don't mind walking barefoot on monkey crap, fearless monkeys, and hauling yourself up hundreds of steps, climbing Mount Popa might be for you. Actually, the monkeys only bother if you have food, the monkey crap is dried and the steps are...
