Around Inle Lake, Myanmar: Part 1

We organized a day-long tour of Inle Lake using the only transportation possible: a boat. Although they say you can get a boat tour leaving from Nyaung-shwe for around $20 total, we decided to go on a private boat scheduled by our hotel for about $45 total – this way, we avoided the $20+ taxi ride to Nyaung-shwe AND (hopefully) our hotel bases their reputation and (more importantly) Trip Advisor stars on making sure our boat captain is top notch.

We were ready to go around 7:30am and walked to the end of the hotel dock to meet our captain. As you might have guessed by now, this guy was extra friendly, especially with not knowing a lick of English. Our motor boat was long with [...]

What to Pack for Myanmar – A Girl’s Guide

Before we left for our 15 day trip to Myanmar, I scoured the internet looking for tips and tricks on what to pack. It’s a bit very, very befuddling because the climate is mighty tropical (think 104° most days we were there…YIKES!!!) but the Burmese are extra-super-duper-conservative, so, if you walk around in what I would consider normal attire for 104° (a bathing suit?!??! at least something close to it…), you will get stares All. Day. Long. and just feel pretty uncomfortable.

So, how can you respect the conservative culture while avoiding the misery of jeans + other knee-and-shoulder-covering clothing? How can you stay cool without looking like you’re walking around [...]

Asian Wings Airways # YJ 881: Bagan-NYU to Heho-HEH, Myanmar

After a great time spent exploring the thousands (literally!) of temples of Bagan, it was time for our first domestic flight within Myanmar. Although the Nyaung U-NYU airport that serves Bagan is only about a 15-20 minute drive (and cost us 6,500 MMK in a taxi, ~$6.40 US)...

Let’s Go: Inle Lake

Inle Lake isn’t just a lake, it’s a way of life that’s other-worldly, even when compared to other lesser-known parts of Myanmar. Its beauty is seen in glimmers of the 70,000 Intha farmers and their way of life, from paddling with one leg to living above the water in wooden + bamboo houses on stilts (with TVs in every window!).

Myanmar is a country full of surprises to any traveler, but Inle Lake has the most surprises of all.

We saved Inle Lake for last on our Myanmar itinerary because we had such high hopes. It seems [...]

Renting E-Bikes in Bagan, Myanmar

The old town of Bagan is fascinating and maybe one of the top places in the world to see the sunset over the thousands of pagodas.

Front row seat for the sunset on top of Shwe San Daw Pagoda

Although there are 2,000+ pagodas still standing, the crumbling temples are each unique with different shapes, sizes and designs (some are filled with ancient paintings while others have multiple tiers to keep climbing til you reach the very tip top). Some of our friends said they’d spend a few days less in Bagan because, by this point in their trip they were “pagoda’d out”, but I’d argue that I could spend days and days in this sleepy + dusty town, just [...]
