When we first heard about the lake, we were told about locals living in water villages, friendly people and beautiful nature, so we were quick to add the stop to our list. More recently, just before we made our way to Nyaungshwe, we heard mixed opinions about the lake, so we were eager to find out what’s what!
A country that has it all! Myanmar is the perfect combination of rarely visited highlights and exceptional friendly people. Only relatively recently opened to tourists, this country has earned a spot on our list of favorite countries ever visited. We opted to visit Myanmar’s ancient capital Mandalay, the temples of Bagan and the fishermen of Inle Lake.
