Episode 056: Myo Min Zaw | Tour guide & Founder of Inle Canoe Lady
Myo Min Zaw is a seasoned tour guide in Myanmar, and the founder of Inle Canoe Lady. Listen to his journey from gaining tourism scholarships in Italy to now initiating various responsible tourism and community development projects across Myanmar.
Hop onto specially designed and decorated canoes, and explore Puack Par at a leisurely pace as local women gently row, and show you around their lively neighborhoods.
Within the clusters of stilted bamboo structures, you can see houses, workshops, home stays, kindergartens, and even a floating post office!
