Primerose Hotel – Frosty Nights on Inle Lake


In yet another instance of the bus arriving in the unbearable hours of early morning.  With it around 4am, freezing, and everything closed, there weren’t too many options.  A few touts and tuk-tuk drivers were at the bus stop.  Agreeing to one, I was brought through a zigzag of dark streets on a path I wouldn’t have been able to retrace if I wanted to.

Enter the Primrose Hotel, an open yard edged with nicer duplex buildings.  The rooms were more expensive than most in Myanmar I had stayed in, but quite comfortable.  The heat in particular made the extra price worthwhile on those cold January nights on the north end of Inle Lake.

Primrose Hotel Bed Cost:

  • Double Room (Private Bathroom) 25000 kyat / US $25.00
