Name: Yin Yin

Where are you from?

I am from a village near Bagan, but I currently live in Nyaung Shwe (Inle Lake) and am working as the Inle Lake region tour guide.

How long have you been a tour guide?

I have been a tour guide for over 5 years!

What is your favourite part of Myanmar?

My favourite part of Myanmar is Inle Lake for many reasons. Imagine a vast and peaceful lake with crystal clear water, fringed by marshes, floating gardens, stilt-house villages, monasteries and Buddhist temples. Picture people rowing with their legs, using movements that make it seem as if they’re dancing a ballet; local fishermen using conical baskets instead of regular boring tackle; long neck women weaving fabrics made out of lotus flowers; and craftsmen and -women making cheroots from corn-husks and the most delicately carved silver goods. I know this place sounds like a fantasy, but it does exist in Myanmar.

Thankyou to Yin Yin for answering these questions!
