#2 of 11 in Things to do in Taunggyi
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. By using our Taunggyi trip planner , you can arrange your visit to Floating Gardens and other attractions in Taunggyi.

  • The ending floating gardens are beautiful to look at. Practical and healthy. The vegetables are very good. The working out of the boat is not easy, but never is gardening.

  • Interesting to see as you cruise by in a boat. Not really worth a stop unless you are a dyed-in-the-wool horticulturalist.  more »
  • Awesome floating gardens in the middle of Inle lake. Beautiful green tones and touch of local agriculture.  more »

  • A real pleasure to sail along the channels of these floating gardens... Especially after 5 days of trek to the discovery of the ethnic groups of the country shan. During this stay in this place is unfortunately limited but I'll stay well one or two more weeks to take advantage of this absolutely magical place...

  • Inle Lake, growing tomatoes in the water. Stop the ship's tour, is made to walk a precarious on the water. Quite as scary, but a boatman boy was demonstrated with a straight face.
