Well after giving the buses a miss as I reckoned it was going to take around 12 hours to get to Inle from Bagan, I splurged and got a plane with a flight time of 30 minutes and a transfer from the airport to my accommodation taking 45 minutes it was a good choice,arrived the hotel at midday and have spent the afternoon walking around looking at the sights and checking out the action on the canal that leads to the lake and it hectic

After my $4 lunch of chicken salad and a beer went and haggled with the local boat men for tour of the lake tomorrow prices ranged from $11 to $17 and ending going with one for $15,this is just me and the boatman no other tourists and goes for about 9 hours so reckon it is good value along with the fact he speaks a bit of English

It is the quite season here at the moment and a lot boats with no tourists the complete opposite of high season when you can't even get accommodation so is a good time to be here,the weather is a bit cooler than Bagan with quite a few showers coming through to cool things down which is good
