Nyaung Shwe

Nyaung Shwe is a small town at the northern end of the Inle Lake. Located at the north end of the lake, the town was once the capital of an important Shan kingdom (the former palace of the saophas, or sky princes, who ruled here is now a museum). Nyaung Shwe is where you will find the best budget and mid-range of accommodation and the most vibrant town atmosphere in the Inle Lake area, with a number of restaurants and bars to enjoy after a day spent on the lake. Even if you do not stay in Nyaung Shwe (there are also luxury hotels around the shores of Inle Lake), you will probably pass through or stop for a drink or meal.
