“Breathtaking”
Review of Floating Gardens

Floating Gardens
Ranked #3 of 14 things to do in Taunggyi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 August 2014

The lake is absolutely stunning and the floating gardens and plantations are an incredible part of that. You will probably see locals farming their lands in boats so it's really interesting to see the massive levels of work that go into these gardens. My favourite thing that I saw in Myanmar! If you get a boat on the lake you will definitely pass many of these.

our boat just weave in and out between each lot and the scenery is relaxing and we are admired how the gardens are organized and discovered another culture.

When the land runs out just grow your crops on the lake! Lush and fertile green area extend for more than a km onto the lake with little passages in between = just room to get a boat down, The odd house on stilts amongst the gardens.

If you do an organized trip on a motor boat you will probably get a glimpse of the floating villages and floating gardens, but I recommend that you ask for your own side trip in a local style kayak led by the kids who live there.

If you hire a boat and take a day trip on the lake the floating gardens is one of the highlights. It's very interesting to see how they grow food on the water. Seeing the locals' way of life revolving around the water was the best part of visiting Inle Lake.
