Foreign travelers in Myanmar tend to follow predictable routes, as there are only a few places with hotels of a sufficient standard. A fixture on most itineraries is Inle Lake, which lies a 45-minute flight north of Yangon in Shan State, at an elevation of 2,900 feet. Fourteen miles long and in most places only a few feet deep, Inle is famous for its exquisite scenery and for the colorful Intha people, many of whom live in stilt villages built over the water.
