Having already seen so many pagodas on this trip, Indein still impressed us. The boat ride to Indein was a pleasant experience in itself. There is a pathway on the side of the main building leading to a spot on the hill top where you can catch the best views of Indein and the beautiful surrounding. Definitely a must-see for Inle Lake.

We just loved the Indein Village as soon as we stepped of the boat and into the impossibly colourful market! The local market sellers and villagers were extremely welcoming and happy to show us their products.

It was fascinating to see people bathing in the river, whilst others were making deliveries on their boats.

The ruined temple, which is gradually being restored is breathtaking!

This village was certainly a highlight of our trip to Inle Lake, and we were so glad that we were fortunate enough to visit.

I think Indein was one of the most interesting places we visited in Burma. It is crammed full of really interesting and exotic things to see and do. There is a fabulous market, where you should bargain and you will find that the prices are much better than in Rangoon at Bogyoke Market. The market stretches for ages and goes all the way up the colonnade on the way to the Pagoda. It's further exciting because you float up a little inlet off the lake to access the village.
And of course, the huge collection of ancient brick stupas is glorious and tells of ages gone by.
This is a must do, I think. Loved all of it.

Had a free day while at Inle Lake and visited Indein Village.
Climb to the top of the hill to visit the pagoda, well worth the walk.
Plenty of restaurants along the river for a cheap meal, food was great.
When viewing the pagodas where the shops start and they charge you to take photos, walk up the hill through the pagodas not the covered walkway where all the shops are. There are dozens of small pagodas and are spectacular. When you reach the top and visit the large pagoda walk down the covered walkway as there is plenty of opportunity to do shopping. good variety and prices ok if you bargain.
I was travelling with On The Go Tours. Just be carefull booking tours through the tour companies as they charge up to US$100/person for some tours. 5 of us hired a boat for the day with 2 crew for US$30. The boat ride was 40 minutes from the eastern side of the lake to the western side.
Was a great day and I would recommend visiting

The first line of pagodas inside the village where the boat will drop you is Nyaung Ohak Pagodas, meaning “group of banyan trees”. Many pagodas are decorated with sculptings of celestial beings or mythological animals and some enshrined images of the Buddha. The site is believed to date back to 3rd century BC when Indian emperor Ashoka sent out monks across Asia to spread Buddhism. We came across a golden Buddha image sitting in meditation pose in the center of the group of Shwe Inn Thein pagodas – it is believed to be built by Indian Emperor Ashoka.

This is a must see if you are visiting Inle Lake. Ask your boat driver to take you there as part of a day trip, and plan for a few hours to wander around. It was peaceful and quiet the day I was there with a local market to check out as well. Not touristy at all despite what other reviews have said, as with everywhere in Myanmar there are hardly any tourists compared to other south East Asian countries. The stupas vary from many in their lovely authentic ruinous state with trees and plants growing through them, although the restoration of the bulk of the stupas is sadly a bit heavy handed and lots of concrete used. See it before they clad over all the original carvings! Enjoy

If you like Angkor or Bagan, I highly recommend Indein. Many stupas at beginning of walk without repair so they have that long lost authentic look. Some near the top of the walk are too neatly refurbished but the overall impression is wonderful. We arrived around 1:30-2pm and saw maybe 12 tourists in the hour we were there. Maybe the others were having lunch. There are lots of crafts for sale along the gradual covered ascent. Highly recommended.

Interesting village with tons of stupas. Yes, it's touristy, but it's still worth the visit. If you're on tour, you will most likely visit here.

Well worth the trip from inle. The journey up the waterway is beautiful. Head up early and miss all of the tourists. The Stuppas are amazing and they're starting to restore them using the same methods with which they were originally built. Our guide and boat driver were both fantastic. Speak great English and we're knowledgeable and funny. The guide Eliyas works also guiding from kalaw to inle trekking. Wonderful human being. He sees the world in which he loves with awe. He has some fantastic historical knowledge and also some very funny stories. The man is a pleasure to be around. So much so that we employed his services for four days as we wanted to enjoy his company longer. He can sort out the boat and will Taylor make an itinerary for you. Even missing the most part of the tourist crowd and eating lunch in a local traditional house with a family. This is what made all the difference to our trip. Otherwise the area is very much centred around tourism and touches like lunch made and eaten with locals make the difference. His number is below and can be contacted by WhatsApp Eliyas +959443735997

We're regularly 'templed out' in the East but Indein offers all the pagodas, temples and stupa you could ever want in one place - so you can then get on with the rest of your holiday. The site of a thousand structures offers an evolution through successive generations - from the ancient ruined and crumbling to the restored, gilded and tacky - but all of it quite an imposing sight and well worth the visit.
