On the market, Inle Lake 2018

One of Inle Lake’s most popular and picturesque attractions is the famous five-day market, so-called because it moves from one rural lakeside village to another on a five-day Rota system. Locals Shan and Intha and numerous Pa-O villagers from the surrounding hills gather to sell their goods and produce.

In general, markets in Southeast Asia are always worth a visit. The offer, as well as the structure of the markets, is very similar. Whether in Laos, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia or Indonesia, when visiting a market visitors are impressed by the variety, the hustle and bustle, and the smells. The offer is always fresh and the atmosphere in an Asian market incomparable.

Here in Nyaung Shwe or on Inle Lake the diversity of ethnic groups adds an extraordinary atmosphere and in a confined space offer an insight into the differences between ethnic groups.
