Traveling in Myanmar, we agreed on the visit to Inle Lake with a traditional festival in which the people set sail with their traditional boats. I was surprised by the colors and the smiles of the people and landscape of the place, a place not to be missed by anyone traveling to a country as beautiful as Myanmar.
The lake is famous for the Taungthaman U Bein Bridge that crosses it. It is the longest teak bridge in the world. The lake practically disappears in the dry season. There are some small lakes inside the Taungthaman that are rice plantations and are filled with fishermen. There is a bar and restaurant on the shore, perfect to relax and enjoy the views.
