The main street has numerous
shops, several restaurants, a few stupas,
travel agencies and a market (located behind
the storefronts). Near the end of this road,
a bridge crosses the river channel near an
impressive mirror-tiled stupa.The town
serves as a marina for the numerous long
boats carrying tourists into the lake.
The lake itself is located a few kilometers
south through a river channel.Nyaung Shwe
can be reached by bus, car, or by plane via
the airport in Heho, located about a
one-hour drive away.
Ywama village is
located on the western side of Inle Lake,
Shan State, Myanmar. The village is most
easily accessible by boat from the town of
Nyaung Shwe on the north side of the lake.
Nearly all the homes and buildings are
constructed on piles driven into the lake
bed. Residents travel around by canoe, but
there are also numerous bamboo walkways and
bridges over the canals running throughout.
As such, there is no main street or square,
but there are pagoda complexes and
monasteries on built-up areas.
