WATCH: 36 Boat trip on Inle Lake October 20, 2012, Myanmar (Burma)
We asked the team at Golden Empress Hotel to help us arrange a boat trip on the Lake. With Ya and Nop from Bangkok, we spent the day exploring and we saw the famous Leg rowers, local fisherman, and the Weaving Factory.
Khit Sunn Yin, Lotus, Silk and Cotton Hand Weaving Center
Mya Hin Tha Special Fish Silversmith shop
Golden Moon Restaurant (Near Floating Market) for lunch. The food was hot and sour potatoes and fried vegetables with cashew nut.
Shwe Inn Dain Pagoda: Inn Dain Khone original stupa donated by King Siri Dhamma Sawka 273-242 BC
Eastern stair (2000′ x 12/5′) (1054 pagdoas—14th c AD — 18th C AD) extra time but worth it
Jumping Cat monastery—The monks stopped allowing the cats to jump a few months before our visit in July 2012. Tourists were concerned that it was not nice to the cats. To me it was a Buddha museum. There were so many styles of Buddha from so many centuries. Incredible and intricate work. There were two large golden Buddhas made from Bamboo. We saw a monk teaching a group who came to visit. It is a working monastery.
Definitely spend a day on Inle Lake there is so much to see! October 20, 2012
