We continued on our travel from Yangon to Inle Lake. Nile Lake is the second largest lake in Myanmar and located in the township of Taunggyi District of Shan state. We stayed at the Novotel Hotel which is located right on the lake. When we arrived at Inle Lake, it was clouded over with a temperature of 14C. I was forewarned that it would be rather chilly at Inle Lake especially when the boat races across the water. Our Turkish towels came in handy as we started to wrap our necks with our towels to keep ourselves warm and cosy. As Turkish towels are made of 100% cotton, they were comfortable and soft and great as neck warmers. The makeshift neck warmers helped to protect us from the biting wind and we were comfortable enough to truly enjoy the ride as our boat man took us to Indein Pagoda (must see!) and various villages thriving on the lake. The sun emerged during the day and our towels were used as sarong wraps to cover up certain areas of our bodies as we visited the pagodas and monasteries. We decided to stay out on the lake to experience a sunset that Inle Lake is well renowned for. We were not disappointed but rewarded with a gorgeous sunset over the Inle Lake. As soon as the sun went down, the temperature dropped and it started feeling like it was 15C. Lucky for us, we had our Turkish towels and we pulled them out to use as blankets and neck warmers. We had such a fun time at Inle Lake.
I am a wife and mother of two lovely boys who keep me on my toes. I love traveling the globe with my family and reading fiction whenever I get a spare moment. I am passionate about my range of peshtemals - Turkish towels and will happily share ideas of how to use these amazingly light weight, absorbent and quick-dry Turkish towels.
