Inle Bike, Boat and Kayak Tour

8 reviews
Discover the Myanmar big tours miss on this perfectly choreographed Inle Lake adventure by bike, kayak, and longtail boat. Pedal along narrow village trails to the pretty town of Khaung Daing then stop for snacks and a look at traditional crafts. Travel by longtail boat and bike through floating gardens for an authentic Shan lunch in a stilt house, then kayak across the lake with a longtail for support.
USD 80.00 per adult

This Museum is located near the market and beautiful buildings. Interesting place for history. I recommend you to visit.

It looks like only the beginning of collecting arts and artefacts used by the people around. It is not much worthwhile to visit, but a visitors visit may help the concerned authorities to add more things. Lets hope for the best.

Very poor, the museum itself is in a bad state, not much to see. Don't bother going there, very few items on display, not much on the rich history of this town and Inle Lake

I've been to couple of countries and it's museum. Since this town is very small and this is the only small museum so you can't expect much. The building itself is from 1913 and yet to complete so that's the main attraction. It was the palace for Shan state chiefs housed and worked at. Some old items from King's era was display such as their dressing mirror, the container for cosmetics, costumes and chairs etc. The downstairs was abandoned and could have been renovated and display well to attract more tourists. They don't have proper handout about the museum. Could have arrange more interesting place for people to see. Exterior is still looking good and attractive. It's a worth to go place if you happen to be in Nyaung Shwe, Inlay lake and go there before 4pm. They close on Monday and Tuesday and Public Holidays.

Not much of a museum compared to the one in Bagan, but some items of interest. The huge wicker Buddha and the turn of the century outfits were of particular interest.
