Inle Lake is one of the most popular tourist spots of Myanmar (Burma), still, it is easily possible to get away from the crowds to find some solitude or to feel like you’re in a place that has not truly been discovered by the rest of the world.

I spent a few days in Nyaungshwe, a small town that served as my first introduction to Burmese semi-rural life.  This dusty small town north of the lake acts like the center of gravity of everything surrounding the 116 square kilometers peaceful body of water.  Markets, hundreds of food stalls, and street vendors conglomerate here to sell the daily catch or their latest harvest.
