River Cruises

Taking a river cruise can often allows you to explore areas where hotels simply don’t exist, meaning you can truly get away from the main sights and into the hidden corners of a destination. River cruising is very much like a moving, luxury hotel that takes you far away from the main cultural sights, and allows you to see the countryside as you drift further off-the-beaten track. Take Burma, cruising along the Irrawaddy or Chindwin Rivers not only allow you to see Mandalay and Bagan, but you stop in remote villages seeing a totally different side of the destination. Cruise along the mighty Brahamputra River in Assam in India and you quickly realise that by staying on a river boat, you can immerse yourself in the wonderful culture by day, and sleep well at night. Usually they are all-inclusive, offering all meals, drinks and excursions meaning you don’t need to pack and unpack every few days. Cruising is incredibly social, as you meet fellow travellers over G&Ts and dinner.
