Floyd and I enjoyed a wonderful vacation in Myanmar and Vietnam over Christmas break! Scroll to the bottom for links to blog posts about other parts of the trip.
Here are some of our memories from the town of Ngaung Shwe, where we stayed for three nights, in the beautiful Inle Lake region of Myanmar.
|This is the guest house where we stayed. Cute, clean, and affordable, plus conveniently located right there in town, walking distance from everything. We recommend it!|
|Horse carts were a common sight on the streets there – both as a taxi for tourists and transportation for locals.|
|Inle Lake isn’t especially famous for its pagodas the way some parts of the country are, but still, they’re everywhere in Myanmar.|
|The entrance to the local open-air market. I enjoyed browsing in there.|
|The market had every kind of fresh produce you can imagine, as well as clothes, toys, souvenirs, and various other items.|
|Prices in the market are all negotiable.|
|This pottery was being displayed for sale at the side of the main road.|
|We saw this sign by the main road and decided to see what traditional Myanmar puppetry was like. It didn’t cost much, and it was a very interesting cultural experience.|
|We ended up riding the bikes up a hill to a nearby winery, from which there was a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside.|
We spent the next day on a boat on Lake Inle. Stay tuned for my next blog post – those are still probably my favorite memories from the whole trip!
