(4.3/5 based on 1,500+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: wineries, spas, classes
The small town of Nyaung Shwe acts as a base when seeing the nearby lake and wetlands, and its collection of guesthouses and hotels, and international restaurants and cafes has marked it out as a backpacker hub. The lake and surrounding wetlands lie at the center of local life, with the fish, rice, and root vegetables cultivated here influencing the local cuisine, and the scenic, biodiverse lake driving most tourism in Nyaung Shwe. The market running along the main thoroughfare offers a good place to stock up before exploring the lake and wetlands, while the street's restaurants and lodgings provide a welcome place to return to after a long day of adventuring.

Where to stay

Though more developments have begun to spring up to the south, Nyaung Shwe remains the primary place to look for accommodations when seeing the lake and the wetlands. Look along the main thoroughfare and the side streets of the modest town center and you'll find a plethora of guesthouses, hostels, and hotels. Backpackers are well catered to in the town center, while luxury-lovers find quiet relief and pleasant views in the hotels by the river to the west. The lake to the south has become the place of preference for luxury resorts, with spas, swimming pools, and views of the water.
