View Itinerary

The ship will cruise weekly between the historic cities with two nights moored at Bagan and three at Mandalay, exploring small towns and villages of lost Burma along the way.

Visiting Burma (Myanmar) is to travel into the past, into a mysterious and undiscovered world. Sharing borders with India and Bangladesh to the west, Tibet and China to the north, and Thailand and Laos to the east, Burma is a melting pot of cultures from across Asia. Along with a century of British colonialism, Burma is a unique destination that captivates travellers.

The cruise may be fantastic on its own or as an add-on for your holiday. This tour starts in Mandalay and ends in Bagan or vice versa, however transfers from other locations can be arranged as required. Discuss options with one of our Travel Specialists.

The Cruise Ship

The beautifully crafted cruise ships have been hand finished in brass and teak by traditional craftsmen. Whilst luxury and comfort are discreetly present, it is the colonial character and friendly atmosphere that prevail. Each ship has an ultra shallow draft allowing for travel to remote areas, which would be unreachable by other vessels, let alone overland.
