Father and son with boat full of weeds collected from the bottom of the lake which will be used to form part of their floating garden. These gardens are not only spectacular they are truly amazing in their ingenuity. No visit to Inle lake would be complete without a trip to see the floating gardens. Most hotels and guest houses can arrange, or help to find, a suitable boat trip. Top tip go as early as possible in the morning to avoid the midday crowds!

    These gardens look so beautiful and almost magical sitting atop the lake. I bet they are even more beautiful and breath taking in real life! xx

    Wow! These look absolutely fascinating. What an adventure to hop on a boat to visit a garden. Some day, maybe.
