Floating Gardens, Taunggyi

(4.4/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
One of the region's most iconic sites, Floating Gardens provide sustenance and livelihood for a significant portion of the local Intha people. Made from compressed masses of hyacinth flowers and other aquatic plants, these fertile gardens rest atop the surface of Inle Lake and allow for the cultivation of tomatoes, beans, and other vegetables. Take a boat ride on the lake to see the gardens rising and falling with the water level, making them resistant to floods. As you explore, you'll pass huts and homes on stilts, and get a chance to see the surrounding mountain scenery from a different perspective. Put Floating Gardens on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Taunggyi trip itinerary planner.

  • In March, the most beds are mature but still nice to look at. Here, a heritage of mankind is to admire, that there will be such might not be long. Can you imagine to work the day in a crouch for almost no income? I don't think so. The TA-tourist looks like archaic images, complaining but if he go more than 5 steps for breakfast have ;-)
