After disembarking it is a 15 minute walk through Inndein village to reach the 14-18th century pagoda ruins of Nyaung Ohak; many pagodas here remain charmingly un-renovated with plants and even small trees growing out of them making it very atmospheric. A covered walkway, popular with souvenir stalls leads up to Shwe (Golden) Inn Dein Pagoda, a complex of weather beaten zedi; some sadly reconstructed although the views from the top make it worth the ascent. Returning to the river jetty we take our long-tailed boat back along the canal to the Lake and proceed to Nyaung Shwe. Dinner (By own account) and accommodation at Hotel in Nyaung Shwe.
