Shwe Inn Tha Floating Resort
Shwe Inn Tha Floating Resort, Inle Lake, Burma (Myanmar)
The Shwe Inn Tha is located in the southern part of the lake, not far from the famous Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda. Each of the 40 stand-alone cottages (two of which are suites) feature simple decor but large, panoramic windows and private balcony, perfect for watching the variety of amphibious activity on the lake.
Built in a traditional style with an environmental awareness, the resort has a large reception area and dining hall that features teak wood furnishings and lofty wooden ceilings. The restaurant offers a range of Pa-O and Intha dishes using fresh produce from the neighbouring floating gardens. There is also a small filtered and chlorinated swimming pool, the first available at Inle Lake.

Around Inle Lake there are many small villages which connect to the main lake by means of narrow canals. Once out on the lake you may see the unique leg-rowing fishermen who stand up on their boats to give them a bird's eye view of the fish in the very shallow waters.
Set in and around the stilted villages of Inle Lake the Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda Festival is one of the largest Buddhist festivals in Myanmar.
Your rower will guide you through the canals, among the stilt houses and floating gardens of the Intha people who live on the lake. The setting sun will provide at atmospheric light for some memorable photos.
