I arrived in Inle Lake at 6am, I have checked cheaper accomodation on hostelworld.com so I choosed Manaw Thu Kaw Hotel. Price was $13 or 14400 one night for dorm. I booked 2 night and only me inside beautiful room because august is low season. Hotel facilities are; wifi, breakfast, bicycle, etc.
I took a shower and I went to around city by bicycle and I saw some people were dealing with boat driver, so I came them and we talked about one day trip arounding Inle Lake. We waited other to join, but no one and driver told us he would give discount. Normaly one boat is $20, mostly people shared cost and maximum for 5 passanger. Because We were three, so he charged us 6.000 each.
This trip starts from 8.30 am. Driver couldn’t speak english, he didn’t give map, we have no idea and I didnt have guide book. Driver just had one map, onlu for him. He showed sightseeing we would visit and we just followed him.
I used Telenor, so I could connected to internet during boat was traveling.
Lake was ordinary, just like in wild.
First, we could see traditional fisher man, some of them asked small money. Boat driver will made boat slow to made easy and tried to closer.
Second we just visited
