Updates from Travelfish readers
Last January, we took the train from Kalaw to Shwenyaung (Inle Lake). It was a fantastic journey.
It costs pristine $3 per person. The train leaves at around 11.00 am. Best is to ask the day before to the train master because schedules are due to change a bit... The journey take around four hours and the train is a bit bumpy but it really worth it! Take a pic nic with you but there is plenty of mobile restaurants selling fruits to freshly hot cooked samosas. The landscape is mind blowing. I would do it again.
Perfect also for pictures opportunities.
