Design Travel customises tour to Myanmar, Inle Lake, Shwe Inn Tha Floating Resort, from SingaporeI met and stayed in Ms Ann's Shwe inn Tha Hotel last year. This hotel is very pretty and is used by famous photographer like McCurry to bring his students to Inle Lake for photography sessions.

Ms Ann contributes to the schools and help the community of Inle Lake.  Meet her at her Hotel (picture, above) during the Inlay Festival starts from 16 October 2012 for 20 days.

It however is very difficult to book the hotel in October and November, you have to make sure the date and number of participants immediately due to the changing the political situation.

Yangon has only 3,000 rooms available for foreigners, so now very expensive and difficult to book the rooms because many businessmen occupied the rooms.

Bagan and Inlay are fine regarding the costs and supply of rooms and transportation, however supply is abnormal in Yangon as many businessmen have booked the few top hotels in Yangon and hotel prices have shot up in 2012.
