Hti Ne Homestay (Inle Lake)
The Homestay programme at Hti Ne has been recently established by a local Community Involved Tourism (CIT) group. The Pa'O region was one of the first communities to be granted an overnight B&B license, which means it is now possible for travellers to stay in simple, yet extremely authentic Pa'O style lodging. The homestay facilities are fairly basic and you will be staying with a welcoming host family in their home, you will have a private room with a Western-style toilet and cold water shower. Your hosts don't speak a great deal of English but are eager to communicate with the help of books and hand gestures, and of course your guide is around too.
