Visit any of the markets around Inle Lake and you’ll surely come across unique homemade treats. From crunchy noodle-like snacks to sweet chewy candies, locals know how to satisfy a sweet tooth! To watch and learn how the sweets are made, visit Kaung Daing, a picturesque Intha village that is located approximately 8km from Nyaungshwe. Here you’ll see villagers pull, mold, fry, bake and dry their edible crafts in the hot sun. With a guide that translates the local language into English, you can take down notes to recreate some of the yummy treats at home too.
Bikers can reach Kaung Daing on two wheels; though do expect a bumpy ride. There’s an unavoidable unpaved road for part of the way.
