Shopping is an entirely different experience at Inle Lake as people come here mostly get all the goods from floating markets all around the lake. The Mine Thauk Market (also known as the five-day market) is a large floating market. Even though its trading schedule can sometimes be confusing, the market is very popular for their wide range of goods.
For those looking for a particular product, the shopping can be done in the village in which the product is made. Inphaw Khone is a great example of village that becomes a popular tourist destination because of its weaving workshops. The village is best place to purchase lotus-silk shawls. The shawls can be expensive, mainly because of the arduous process involved in production.
