18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Trading on the boats

The Inle lake region is one of the most anticipated destinations, and all the hype is justified. Picture a vast, serene lake over 13miles long and 7 miles wide, fringed by marshes and floating gardens, where stilt-house villages and Buddhist temples rise above the water , and Intha fisher folk propel their boats along via their unique technique of leg-rowing. You can also learn how the locals are trading on the floating markets.
