Inle Lake in Myanmar is an obligatory stopover for any Burmese itinerary. Once in the city of Nyaungshwe, it is easy to charter a cheap boat for the day. The most basic driver will take you to at least 5 stops and will include more temples if you pay more. The first stop is usually to see how the locals farm tomatoes on floating gardens in the middle of the lake. You will also see a weaving factory where they weave cotton, silk and lotus flowers into clothing. A tobacco rolling factory sits upon the lake on tall bamboo stilts as well. There are multiple temples spread throughout the lake so allow yourself more than a day if you want to check out some in the further reaches. Also you will stop by an itinerant moving market for souvenirs.
It is cheaper if you can get a group of people to charter the boat from the city. If you are staying on the lake itself the hotel can arrange a boat for you.
