A visit to Inle Lake will let visitors take in the stilted houses of the area from one of the many international restaurants. For a more adventurous experience, some travellers choose to dive in the Myeik Archipelago to see the fish, sea life, and corals. Many people also choose to spend a few days in Bagan taking in the hundreds of temples in the area. There are several festivals to check out including the Pindaya Cave Festival in March, Thihoshin Pagoda Festival in June and July, and Maha Thingyan in March.
