Inle lake, Myanmar, Things to do around Inle Lake -

Things to see and do around Inle Lake, Myanmar After a few awesome days in Bagan, we headed over to Inle Lake with a V.I.P. night bus. The bus ride was an experience of its own, specially since it was way more luxurious than we had expected. The bus was  fully equipped with comfy spacious chairs, built-in TV monitors and power plugs to charge our electronics. It even had a private stewardess to go over safety regulations “on board” and announcing stopovers. Each passenger was provided with blankets, water, snacks, washcloths and even a toothbrush.

Formerly known as a Trader’s hotel, it underwent extensive refurbishment and was rebranded to become part of the Shangri-la family.

The Room After a swift check in and a delicious welcoming drink, we were escorted to our room while all the hotel’s main facilities were explained along the way.
