The British called the country Burma, presumably after the majority race the Bamar, but the name Myanmar was the official name of the country since at least the time of Marco Polo. Myanmar again became the official name in 1989 although some still use the colonial name Burma.

Paradise Inle Resort consists of bungalows built on stilts right on the lake. Made of local wood and bamboo all bungalows have private balconies overlooking the lake which make for a perfectly relaxing setting in which to enjoy your time in this part of the world.
