Photographer's Note

Nyaung Shwe is a township, the gateway to Inle Lake a few kilometers south connected through a river channel. There are many small canals in town which are so lively in the morning as the long boats will come in from villages around the lake, ferrying goods, farm produce, people etc. turning these canals into floating markets. Farm produce are usually traded here directly from these boats to ready buyers. As more and more of these boats arrive, the canals eventually choke up with interesting mixture of colors, sounds and smells. Real chaos but worth seeing!

Picture taken at less hectic section of a small canal. Veges are awaiting to be unloaded ashore from the long boats.
