Pass by floating gardens and see the fisherman using one leg to row their boats. The first stop is PaungDawOo noted for its five famous Buddha images which have been covered in so much gold leaf that they resemble golden balls. Then it’s on to a stilted village where traditional skills such as blacksmithing, cigar rolling and silk weaving are still done by hand. The last stop on the lake is the Jumping Cat Monastery. While the cats no longer jump there is an impressive display of Buddha images.

Walk up the main stairs flanked with vendors selling postcards, puppets, and wood carvings to reach the top for the views. While some of the stupas have been rebuilt, most remain in an abandoned state with trees sprouting between the cracks. Locally known as the five-days market, this gathering is held in a different village around the lake every five days, where local ethnic groups come to trade and sell their wares - we will call into the market if coincides with our visit.

A mix of east meets west, where cultures collide unlike anywhere else. Hear the call to prayer from the mosques, the clang of church bells and the chant of monks as you wander the lively streets. Take a stroll through the historic quarter where the grand dames of colonial architecture with their crumbling facades cast shadows over booksellers and street markets. Have your fortune told at Chaukhtatgyi Pagoda with its large reclining Buddha and later in the afternoon head to Shwedagon Pagoda for sunset when the stupa glows bright gold in the evening light.
