Info : Train and transfer from Kalaw to Lake Inle
Spend the morning wandering around the charming hill station of Kalaw before taking a train to Shwe Nyaung. Trains in Myanmar are basic and move slowly, but are a fantastic way to see the beautiful countryside and travel like the locals do. Then drive to the town of Nyaung Shwe, which is located on the edge of Lake Inle. Board a private local boat and cruise to your hotel, enjoying lunch on board.
All guides were very good, spoke good English and were very knowledgeable. The logistics all worked extremely well: drivers, boatmen etc all did a very good job. We also found that the guides were happy to talk to us on a wide range of issues, including politics!
