On of a kind hotel on the shore of Inle lake. Boat access only is amazing, The sunsets on the lake or on your deck are out of this world. The food at the resort is great and the singing cowboy is great in the evening during dinner. A magical place.

... stall was selling the same touristy bits. We saw the ladies with the long necks and their many necklaces. We then saw the floating gardens (exactly as it sounds). Somehow they had made rows of beds to grow things in in the middle of the lake! Mainly tomatoes. It then became too hot and we all headed back to avoid the burning sun. A good day all round. Definitely worth the overnight bus. ...
... in the vicinity of tourist boats. I guess that's ok since it was valuable to see the art, even if it's not economical on a mass scale any longer.
The hotel was in the southeast of the lake, attached to a landmass that is exposed during the drier season we are now in. The property is nice, although since it is only accessibly by boat we are a little bit of a captive audience. There is a village adjacent to the hotel connected by a bridge, ...
