Bangkok and Vietnam adventure by Pete and Mo Hill

Intriguing Inle Lake and Natural Ngapali

 
James and Cate in Myanmar
  
Whilst sitting in Heho airport we felt in a bit of a daze digesting our action packed itinerary at Inle Lake. Inle is far more touristy than anywhere we have been as it is the place everyone visits; that said it has a charm of its own and we can understand its allure.
