The Story

Best time to go: October - April
Best for: River Cruises, Culture & Beach, First Time Visitor, Historical

There are a multitude of boats that cruise the Irrawaddy between Mandalay and Bagan, and for this suggested itinerary we have opted for the luxurious Belmond Road to Mandalay. We can of course offer a range of boats that suit your dates, style and budget and will of course discuss the options with you and then tailor the rest of the itinerary around your choice. Some boats have longer or shorter cruises, so this is always a consideration. Around this, you will be able to see the other major highlights of Burma and will have a private tour that also includes Yangon, Inle Lake and some R&R on the beach at the end in Ngapali, again all of which can be customised around what you want to see and do. It goes without saying that we will provide the best guides and transfers to ensure the tour runs like clockwork, and will craft experiences totally around your interests and how you like to travel.
