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.

... this road in 10 years time, it will be a different sight completely.
Luckily we arrived before I could be car sick and in time for Anne to asked all her questions of our enthusiastic and smiley Phoo. Like most young girls from Myanmar, she won our hearts with her politeness and sweetness.
We left the car to see the twin large Stupas of Kakku which together with the 1,998 other smaller stupas surround the temple complex. They are all ...
... Myanmar, but in total we haven't spent much and if it helps spread the tourist dollar down to the bottom and helps end the control by the few, so be it.

As we arrived a huge caterpillar truck on a barge was dredging the mail hotel waterway next to our room, drowning out the noise of the two water pumps clattering away in the ...
