About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Inle Lake, Nyaungshwe Myanmar

Inle Lake is one of the most magical places in Myanmar, with hundreds of years of history behind it. At 9am you will be met at your hotel on the lake by our guide in a local boat to begin your day of adventure. Amongst the sights you will visit are the 5-day floating market: so-called as it migrates from one rustic lakeside village to another on a five-day rota system, which market takes place which day is more than a little complicated, since market days don’t correspond to days of the week or even particular dates, but your trusty guide will check this for you.

Stop At: Phaung Daw Oo Paya Pagoda, Ywama Village, Taunggyi, Myanmar (Burma)

We will explore Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda which is a notable Buddhist Pagoda on the lake as it houses five small gilded images of Buddha, which have been covered in gold leaf to the point that their original forms cannot be seen.

Duration: 50 minutes

Stop At: Nga Phe Kyaung Monastery, Taunggyi Myanmar

Nga Hpe Kyaung monastery or ‘Jumping Cat Monastery which is situated on the West side of the lake it was named due to its jumping cats, trained to leap through hoops during the slow hours between scripture recitals, although few of these remain, it is famous for its collection of ancient buddha images.
