This is really impressive. The majority of plants are tomatoes, but how they plant and harvest them, this is really interesting. more that 30% of the tomatoes in Myanmar come from here. You should visit.

It's really interesting to see how these fresh green tomatoes are grown on the floating farm and how the locals make their living around this plantation. What's better is those are privately owned and almost every family has their now tomato garden.

Visiting the floating gardens is on top of every Inle lake tours. Without a guide to explain it's a pointless excursion, so make sure you have one. The islands are made of lake grass and supported by bamboos. They're tiny and long, floating on a...More
