The Pagodas

I had read about the 400 Pagodas in the Lonely Planet Guide but hadn't met anyone that had actually been there. So When I met my boat driver and we were discussing what we wanted to see I mentioned Indein and he said that it was very interesting but it would be an extra 1000 Kyat (US$1.20) as it was 10 KM round trip from the normal route. It was well worth the extra expense! LOL It was probably my second favorite place on Inle Lake behind the Nampan Market.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful Pagodas
  • Cons:Nothing at all!!!!!!
  • In a nutshell:Absolutely gotta see it if your in the area!!

    You're so right about the sweets as most of these children have no access to dental care. Another great adventure spot to visit in the near future. Thanks!

    Astounding. Really. I've reald a lot of books written by Burmese people recently. Your photos illustrate many of the sites they describe. But where are those floating gradens?

    A magical place - even if it was 100F+. Splendid shots bringing some of the mystery to us.

    Pagodas looks great, so did you have any luck by gonging those bells?
