Located on the western side of Inle Lake, Indein Village is one of the five major villages surrounding Inle Lake. These villages play a significant role in preserving the ancient Pa-O culture in Burma. Also famous for the two groups of ancient pagodas in the village, Indein Village is accessible from the Inn Thein Creek. A long and narrow canal ride in this creek is an adventure to remember.
This eight-kilometer boat ride is only possible in wet seasons when the water level is sufficiently high. Indein Village and other villages surrounding Inle are also famous for the”5-day market.” This market takes place every five days in every village. If lucky, you will get a chance to experience it.
