Inle Lake is one of Myanmar’s (formally Burma) popular tourist destinations. So, obviously, Irene and I could not miss it. And the lake did not disappoint our expectations. This vast serene body of water is framed by numerous marshes, floating gardens, and beautiful Buddhist temples. Only here you will see fishermen rowing their flat-bottom boats with one leg, and meet multiple minority communities living on the shores of this majestic lake and in villages with houses built on stilts.
