Paddle the serene waters of Inle Lake — where floating gardens groan beneath the weight of their wares, sleepy fishermen cast their nets, and stilt villages sit in the shadows. Take secret hiking trails that cross local villages, cycle the verdant countryside, and enjoy a lazy lunch in a traditional stilted woven bamboo Shan house. On the famed Road to Mandalay, drift down the Thanlwin River and kayak the flooded lakes of sweet southern Myanmar.
