We spent the next three days exploring in and around Inle Lake. The lake is huge and lined by reed marshes and canals that take locals to the small towns that surround the lake. We visited local markets and saw some of the local craftsmen still practicing their trades - boat-making, weaving, fishing, and metal-working.
Enjoy the photos!

After Yangon, we made our way to another popular Myanmar destination - Bagan, mainly known for the thousands of temples spread across 40 square miles. Between the 11th and 13th centuries, there were more than 11,000 structures (temples, pagodas, monastaries) in the area and only about 2,200 remain today. We spent the next two days exploring the area, getting up before sunrise and finding the best vnatage point for sunset.

First impressions of Yangon, we all seemed a little discombobulated and felt really confused where we were, who we were seeing, who Burmese people were, etc. This might have been because of the heat and the intense week we had in India. We tucked ourselves away in a super western hotel to collect ourselves and set foot outside again.
