Arriving at Inle Lake, the boat first goes to a silversmith in Aung Chan Thar. Here you get insights into the filigree handwork. It is done with the simplest means. The results, however, are true works of art. Of course, as always in these show workshops, they are fully geared to tourism, yet it is quite interesting to watch the work of mostly young men.
Framed by the landscape of Inle Lake, there is a special atmosphere, and at first one is not sure where to focus attention, on the workers or the surrounding area. After a short stay with a guide, we continue to an umbrella workshop.
