Entry fee: covered in the through ticket for Inle Lake Pass which charges US$5.

There are several floating markets are simply built with bamboos on different regions on the bank of Inle Lake. Floating Market is an important good distribution center for local people and is held every five days in different location in turns.  

Most people deal with their goods just on their boats instead of going ashore. On the market day, they wear straw hats, row their boats with full goods, get close to the market and cry their wares. Fishermen sell their fresh fish and dried fish, women sell their home-grown vegetables and fruits, mountain villagers sell their home-made cane sugar and mountain products, while peddlers sell kinds of small articles of daily use. With increasingly tourists here, traveling souvenirs are also found today on the market that travelers can pick up their favorite Myanmar crafts such as lacquerware, teakwood carvings, pottery, jewelry.

During the peak hours of the market day, boats of goods and boats for tourists are thronged together in the narrow waterway, just like the traffic jam on land. This abustle and astir attracts numerous travelers to visit.
