Burma

Looking for photographer to share a boat on Inle Lake in Burma. I’ll be staying in Nyaungshwe and renting a boat very early every morning and again around mid afternoon through sunset. Oct 24-Nov 2, 2012.

These boats must cost a fortune since my last visit.

Yes Tom. They’re now charging 50,000 K a day (about $65). I’ll try to find small boat for a few days at those rates.

That’s crazy for a dodgy dug-out. Or do they have Chinese jet-ski’s there already?

Why dont you join te fishermen whenever they go out on the lake? Follow them for a day or two. It might be boring most of the day, or it might be interesting….

Man I really gonna do jet-ski’s on the lake next time!!! :-)

Probably will do that and find someone cheaper when I need it. $25 goes a long way in Burma.Think that’s more like it.Been to Burma guite a few times but never Inle Lake.

Cristopher, Please let me know the outcome and any contact. i shall be arriving in Nyaungshwe just a couple of days after your departure. Will stay at the Teakwood. Any tips will be appreciated. Last time I was in Burma was in ’75 so I need a major update :-)

Hello Jim. I’m flying to Rangoon Monday and will head to Inle Lake on Tuesday. I’ll be staying at May Guest house in Nyaungshwe. I’ve been to Burma often last time in April 2012. What day you checking in to Teakwood? I’ll look you up. Are you interested in renting a boat? I’ll start looking for one on Wed but don’t want to go out with a bunch of tourists.

Hi Christopher, as you are there now you probably already know, but you can hire a non-motorised boat with a local boatman for much much cheaper. Although you won’t be speeding around quite as much, they are good because they are slower, so easier to stop when you see a good shot and also they can go down some of the more local narrow waterways which the motorised boats (and tourists!) don’t go down…

Hi Hanna. Yes I’ve been here more than a week. Like most things until you actually get there you don’t know the whole story. Traveling long distances every day with the Buddha processions so you need a fast boat which turned out to be very reasonable. Beautiful locations, sweet people, and pictures everywhere. Two more days until it’s over but a great trip.
