Before we arrived by boat in Nyaungshwe we stopped at a few places on the Inle Lake like the floating gardens and some shops runned by "Long-necked" ladies from the Kayan tribe. A spectacular view were the traditional fishermen that paddle the boat by foot.
In Nyaungshwe I stayed in a hostel for 3 nights, so I had plenty of time to wander around the village and the borders of the Inle Lake. On a free bicycle from the hostel I started to to make a trip around the lake. After an hour I was joined by an Australian girl. And together we visited a village that produces over 20 kinds of tofu (like bread, candies, crackers). From here we crossed the Inle Lake by boat where we had a beer in another small village before we biked to the Red Mountain Winery (1 of the 2 wineries in Myamar) for a glass of red wine during sunset.
Next day I walked around the village of Nyanugshwe and got some souvenirs at the local (regional) market.
