Pindaya is a lovely little town with a lake and some fun caves full of Buddhas. There is one good restaurant in town and we recommend the Golden Cave Hotel.
We spent 2 nights; went to the caves and then just relaxed. It was such a welcome environment after the town at Inle Lake, which was dusty, dirty and boring beyond belief.
The official attractions were the caves and paper umbrellas factories but I found very interesting the 2 hour ride from Heho Airport.
Yo can have a glimpse of the real Myanmar life. It´s very picturesque :)
