If you come to Inle Lake, make sure you have a morning free for the Five Day Market. Five Day Market is a market that held in 5 different villages/towns over a 5 day period.
The origin of the Five Day Market can be found in our "Ask Locals".
Most products you saw in the market are fresh vegetables or cooked food. At Nyang Shwe (Inle Lake) the market is being hosted at Mingalar Market in downtown. Mingalar Market is already a busy market which opens everyday. But during five day market, people from nearby village all come to Nyang Shwe. The price drops significantly.
If you don't like grocery shopping, that's not a problem. Five Day Market offers more than just food. Just look carefully enough, you will be surprised. Our lovely guest got these amazing silver rings.
