Full description
Start the bike tour in central Nyaungshwe. After an hour of pedaling through undulating paddy fields and crossing canals, enjoy a relaxing dip at the Khaung Daing hot springs. Cycle a further 10 minutes down the road to arrive at Khaung Daing village. The village is famous for the locals' large-scale production of traditional Shan foods such as tofu, soybean crackers, and dried beans. Take photos of a brilliant yellow-colored field of split-pea tofu baking in the sunshine.

Next, descend through the hills for a scenic longtail boat trip across the Inle Lake, where a traditional lunch will be waiting for you. Experience an authentic local menu comprised of tribal dishes. Everything will be cooked by a local family using traditional Shan cooking techniques.

After lunch, you can try canoeing by yourself in the compound or take some time to relax. Then, make your way back to the boat for more opportunities to see local fishermen at work, rowing their boats along the beautiful lake. Arrive back to the Nyaungshwe jetty to finish the tour.
