Meiktila Travel Information

Meiktila is a busy crossroads town in Central Myanmar resting on the banks of Lake Meiktila.

Roads serving Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan and Inle Lake meet in the town, but travelers who take time to stretch their legs or cycle around the lake find the area’s charms an appealing reason to alter their travel plans for a longer stay. Antaka Yele Paya, a small pagoda floating on the lake, can be reached via a wooden foot bridge and is well worth the short pilgrimage.
