Day 4 Continued: Arrival at Heho | Inle Lake
After our successful pilot series from Yangon, Myanmar, The iTravel Channel TV team returns to Myanmar for yet another production. After a flight time of one hour, Mann Yadanarpon Airlines Flight 241 from Yangon (RGN) to Heho (HEH) arrives. At Heho Airport, the team is picked up by a tour guide, Mr. Sai Win from the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism.
The food and service on-board Mann Yadanarpon Airlines is fantastic.
Upon leaving the airport, travel time to Inle Lake is approximately an hour. We first stop for a Shan dinner at the Viewpoint Lodge and Fine Cuisines. The food is not only delicious, but the General Manager, Mr. Arno di Biase, takes great care of us. If you’ve never had a traditional Shan barbecue dinner, you’re in for a treat. The food presentation is incredible.
Taunggyi – Home of Hot Air Balloon Festival 2016
On a full stomach the next stop is Taunggyi, Myanmar. Taunggyi is home to the Hot Air Balloon Festival 2016 and it’s absolutely incredible. In fact, it’s nearly madness with hundreds of thousands of people in attendance. As we witness the magic of Myanmar unfolding in Taunggyi, there’s countless international tourists. The production team caught up to interview tourists and everyone had a great time.
The Hot Air Balloon Festival 2016 in Taunggyi, Myanmar, is absolutely amazing. The production crew had fun while capturing the magical moments of film. At the end of the day, this is a must-do for any visitor to Myanmar.
