The markets make their rounds every 5 days so you're bound to catch one during your stay on Inle. Check out Thandaung on Sunday, a bit off the beaten path to say the least - a half-hour boat ride from Nyaung Shwe and a 45 minute-1 hour walk through various shades of green rice fields. Like all markets there treats to be found in every corner.
