Detail of Inle Lake Cooking Class

In the morning,  the tour-guide and driver will collect travellers at the hotel to start the wonderful trip in the mighty lake. After preparing necessary equipment, tourists embark on the private boat for the awaiting authentic experience.

En-route, tourists have chance to get a closer look about the unique catching fish techniques of the local Inthar fishermen. They only need one leg to balance the boat, the other leg to support the fishing cage, one arm to aim the fishing cage, and the other one to steer.  Visitors can also try learning the technique to catch fish for lunch. If tourists cannot catch any fish, it is not a problem because there are a lot fresh fish purchased in a nearby market.

Boating on the lake, visitors can easily meet the sight of floating gardens built by the natives. Local farmers plant produce on the top of the beds they create from weeds. The vegetable grows up thanks to the nutrients from the Lake, so that they are definitely fresh. Visitors can also buy vegetable right there for lunch.

Afterwards, tourists pay a visit to a local Intha house where there is a fantastic cooking class of traditional Ithar dishes. Tourists will be warmly welcomed by the host, and start learning to cook some delicious local food such as stuffed carp/catfish (depending on catch) steamed in banana leaf, Inthar tomato salad, fried tofu cakes, stuffed potato rice balls, etc.

The visitors are transferred back to the hotel by midday.
